comment How to think in number chord notation for Major and Minor
Last night I asked a guitarist to play something in C that he normally played in D. (It was too high for a harmony). Capo wouldn't have helped...

@amalgamate - I've questioned the phenomenon several times, and been given short shrift. Anonimity rules, apparently!

comment How to think in number chord notation for Major and Minor
@amalgamate - it's certainly worth getting to grips with NNS, but more important, I think, is to be able to see or know a song in one key, and be able to play it straight in any other key. That's probably a more useful skill - I need it all the time depping or accompanying at open mic gigs.

@amalgamate - yes, except NNS can stray from the straight and narrow, and I find some bits are not as crystal clear as they should be, especially when hand-written.

comment Playing certain chords sounds wrong
Your 1st point - not every string needs that - on F, 1st fret barre, only strings 6,1 and 2 need to be pressed effectively.

comment Truth behind Mozart memorizing Miserere and then writing it down later in full
As Andy says, unless there was another person who was similarly talented, how would that transcription be authenticated? Even if the original performers heard it, they probably wouldn't know how accurate it was.
