Before you visit music
lessons for specific instruments, it is strongly recommended you visit and learn
a little bit about the Nashville Number Code and music theory.
It is also recommended
you go through each of these "Music Theory" lessons one by one and in the order
they appear, and not try to move on or too fast, until you understand everything
in the lesson you are currently working and studying.
We will be using these
symbols and numbers to show chord changes and riffs, in addition to tablature in
each subsequent lesson and also for each specific instrument lesson.
These numbers/symbols in our basic "Music Theory" lessons will prove helpful, even if you have been playing for a while or you are
indeed a well seasoned professional.
Knowing basic music theory and
harmony will help you learn the licks much faster and the rationale for them, in addition to
helping you learn to improvise and to grow as a musician to express your own voice
