Music Theory: The Number System and Chords

John-Paul Gentile

  • JP tackles the application of music theory.

  • Number system – goes up to 7, the scale.

  • Major chords 1,4,5 – Big guys. 2,3,6,7 – little guys. Just memorize the 1,4,5 of whatever key you’re in and fill in the blanks from there.

  • Start to put numbers above the letters on your chord charts – it will be an easy way to learn your number system. You will start memorizing your songs by numbers instead of needing chord letters.

  • JP goes through a song to show how to apply the number system.
