Castalia’s famous Table of Keys and Chord and Scale Table use a system of numbers based on the tones of the major scale (DO-RE-MI=1-3-5 etc.) to represent the notes of scales and chords (the Universal Key). The system shows the notes for all chords and scales as well as which scales are commonly played with which chords to get the characteristic “sounds” of all styles of popular music, from classical to rock, county, blues, Latin, folk, pop, and jazz.
The poster’s cross-reference system makes transposing songs and scores quick and easy even for those who do not read music. It also shows how to write chord charts and transpose progressions using the “Nashville System” (in which Roman Numerals are used to represent chords) which is used by professional studio musicians everywhere.
