Number System Tab

   
The number system is not hard to learn. It is a system of numbers that stand for a certain chord.

If I put the numbers  2- 7b 1 2-   in the key of C, that would be a d minor b flat, C, d minor.

This is a way to read music.

I will now put the keys and numbers for all the chords in a certain key.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/misc/number_system_tab.html ]
 Key         1    2   3   4    5   6   7   8   9
 C   (none)  C    D   E   F    G   A   B   C   D
 F   (1 flat)F    G   A   Bb   C   D   E   F   G
 Bb  (2 flats)Bb  C   D   Eb   F   G   A   Bb  C
 Ab  (4 flats)Ab  Bb  C   Db   Eb  F   G   Ab  Bb
 Db  (5 flats)Db  Eb  F   Gb   Ab  Bb  C   Db  Eb
 Gb  (6 flats)Gb  Ab  Bb  Cb   Db  Eb  F   Gb  Ab
 Eb  (3 flats)Eb  F   G   Ab   Bb  C   D   Eb  F
 F#  (6sharps)F#  G#  A#  B    C#  D#  E#  F#  G#
 B   (5sharps)B   C#  D#  E    F#  G#  A#  B   C#
 E   (4sharps)E   F#  G#  A    B   C#  D#  E   F#
 A   (3sharps)A   B   C#  D    E   F#  G#  A   B
 D   (2sharps)D   E   F#  G    A   B   C#  D   E
 G   (1sharp) G   A   B   C    D   E   F#  G   A
 C   (none)   C   D   E   F    G   A   B   C   D


These are the scales and key numbers. The number with a dash by it is a minor chord like 2-  in
C is a d minor.  A number with a b by it is a flat. The other symbols
stand for obvious things that you can figure out. This is called th nu-
mber system. Any song tab I do will be in this system. So you need
to learn it if you want to read what i tab. Good luck.
