What's the Deal?

After teaching guitar for over 10 years, I have found that the best way to learn a song is not via sheet music. The pros in Nashville use something called the Nasvhille Number System, and it's catching on with bands, worship bands, and recording studios all over.

In teaching, I let a student bring in any song that they wanted to learn. Now you can reap the benefits of all of those hours spent charting songs.

Keep in mind, these songs are 100% charted by ear and are not derived from any other material. This also means that there may be a missed chord here and there. Also keep in mind that many of these songs were charted with the guitarist in mind, so most will be charted relative to capo.

These charts are chord progression charts only, which do not include lyrics or melody lines. Also, the artist's name is credited whenever possible. These charts are completely free to the public and are only intended for private study, scholarship, or research. If your intentions are otherwise, please do not proceed further into the list of charts.

Hopefully you will learn songs you love and discover new music as well. If you are confused with how to read these charts, you can either research the Nashville Number System, or you can visit an instructional website that has a teaching style built around this system called
