Nashville Number Charts

Charts & Music Preparation

As well as standard notation I provide charts in what is known as the Nashville Number System.

Developed by Neal Matthews Jr. of The Jordanaires for use on the 50’s sessions with Elvis Presley it was further developed by session great Charlie McCoy. Essentially it is a method of writing chord charts which follows the centuries old tradition of Figured Bass. Each harmony relates back to the tonic chord “1”. It is an extremely practical and useful system and is standard practice in the Country Music Industry. For a surprisingly low fee I can provide both standard chord notation and a “numbers chart” for the same song.
