I have already brought this up on another thread but wanted to use a simpler progression.
I'm wanting to know if the correct method for the nashville number system to always think of the major key being I chord, despite if its a modal track etc.
Em G D A - Im - bIII - bVII - IV OR IIm - IV - I - V
Cmaj7 /// Gmaj7 /// Cmaj7 /// Am7 / Gmaj7 / I V I VI V OR IV - I - IV - II V
My personal though on this would to look and relate everything to the major key
Em G D A is in the key of Em starts on the IIm so I'm in E Dorian
Cmaj7 Gmaj7 Cmaj7 Am7 Gmaj7 starts on the IV and sound like Cmaj7 and is a lydian progression although by not having the D major present doesn't warrant hanging on that sharp 4!
Just wanted to know your thoughts?
