    There is something about that in the Fretboard Wizzard course – in the first section – Foundation of Five, the third lesson called Chord Matrix.

    An example: if you are in the key of C Major the notes are in this order:

    C D E F G A B C… the first note 1 (C) the third note 3 (E) and the fifth note 5 (G) become the three scales from which the chords for the song can be created.

    They are placed in a matrix with the 1 scale at the top, the 3 scale in the middle and the 5 scale at the bottom. From this matrix you can calculate the major, minor and diminished chords in the pattern of Maj, min, min, Maj, Maj, min, dim, and Maj reading from left to right. The first Major chord would be column 1 = C, E & G.

    I hope you have access to Fretboard Wizzard and can look it up. I am not far through the Fretboard Wizzard so if it comes up again later I’m not aware of that yet….

    Hi @CaptainFuture , If you take the Fretboard Wizard you’ll learn more about the Nashville number system in the course. I tried to google it and it was over-powering confusing. In the Fretboard Wizard, Tony puts it in easy terms, with a white board and a guitar. You’ll get quizzes along the way to help make you remember. Good Luck. It’s only offered a couple times a year, when it’s offered up, take it.

    @CaptainFuture Yes, you’ll have to take Fretboard Wizard through TAC to get lessons on the Nashville Number System. Since Fretboard Wizard isn’t currently being offered (and assuming you didn’t purchase it when you joined), you can always Google easy lessons on the Nashville Number System, and some videos and websites should show up to choose from.
