Watch the The 1 4 5 Zig Zag online guitar lesson by Erich Andreas from Nashville Number System Decoded

The 1 - 4 - 5 zig-zag or bolt pattern that I'll reveal to you will show you how to immediately identify where your 1, 4, and 5 chord roots are at, at all times. Since we'll have instant access to the 1, 4, 5 root notes at any time, we'll also be only one scale step away from all the other scale notes, making chord identification much quicker! It works particularly great with fifth string tonics (keys) as you can exploit the sixth, fifth, and fourth strings instantly.
