Default Re: Nashville Number System

I have done some recording with Nashville artists, and larryace nailed it. There isn't an actual correlation between the numbers and the actual drums, etc (like, you will never have a producer say to you "Play a fill starting with 16th notes on the 1 drum, then move to 8th notes on the 5 drum"). However, you might hear "When it transitions to the four, we need a big fill.
