Numbering system... 10 years 6 days ago #6298

I'm not familiar with the numbering system that FM talked about in class last night. How would i find out more about it, on line, for instance? What would I "google"?

If it has anything to do with math, I'm in trouble!

Not really. Say you're playing in the key of G. Take the G scale. There's 8 notes in it, right? So number each note in the scale 1-8; so in the G scale 1=G, 2=A, 3=B, 4=C, 5=D, and so on. It's easier to change keys if you're using numbers, cuz if you're playing G, C, D (1,4,5) in the key of G, then to switch to, say, the key of C, you would just have to think, "What is 1, 4, 5 in the C scale?"
I seriously need to work on this. I'm not good at making myself stop to figure out what the numbers are. But, 'practice makes perfect.' (or so they say:))

Not sure what you mean by diminished and minor in your post. In the classroom section of the website, I have an article entitled "Fretmentor Lesson - Nashville Numbering System" It is the Music Theory section of the Classroom. Go to the following section of the website. It can't get simpler than this (with a song example to boot):
