The Number System

Applying the Number System is easy.  To completely understand this system, you must understand your scales.  In this example, we'll use the C major scale.  C=1, D=2, E=3, F=4, G=5, A=6, B=7, C=8.  Now each number/Letter is associated with a chord.  The 1 is always a major chord.  In this case, the C will be a C major chord.  The 2 is always a minor chord, 3 is a minor, 4 major, 5 major, 6 minor, 7 diminished, and 8 major.  This is a chord receipe for a major scale.  It will look like this....
(Cmajor, Dminor, Eminor, Fmajor, Gmajor, Aminor, Bdiminished, Cmajor)  So whenever you are playing in any key, use the number system to help you understand where to apply minors, majors, and diminished.
