View LessonMusic theory is a fearsome beast, and our recommendation at JamAlong is you only learn the parts you really need. In other words, there are certain elements of music theory that are very useful in a jam session, and this is the stuff we prefer! So that's why we have a lesson on the "chord-number system", because although it sounds dry, it's actually one of the more awesome things that music theory offers. For example, have you ever been at a jam or a band rehearsal and someone started referring to the chords in a song by using numbers? Yep. Pretty confusing if you've never learned the chord-number formulas, and rather snooty as well. Well, be in the dark no more, with this easy to read eBooklet you'll be calling numbers in no time, and also have a much better understanding about chord relationships and progressions.
This lesson is taken from our book "Music Theory for Hillbillies" which covers all the music theory that you want to know, and makes it easy and fun to learn.
