So, still inspired by the Nashville Number System sessions at Cabin Camp, I am diving in to chord charting.
It seems like a real prerequisite is complete command of keys and which intervals map onto which notes/chords. That is, ideally, memorization of all intervals in all keys (starting with “common” bluegrass keys). So you immediately know that a “5” in the key of C is a G. (Obviously this is important to other aspects of music theory in addition to NNS).
Is this a correct assumption? That is, should I start by learning intervals, key by key, until they’re baked in?
Of course, approaches to learning vary, and what works for one student might not for another. Just looking for some suggestions.
Thanks, all, I’m very grateful to @BanjoBen for providing this forum, and to all of you for participating in it!
