Nashville Chord Numbers

Version 01.25.00
Added 06 Jul 2010 (last updated 28 May 2019)

For use with Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x, Sibelius 18.x, Sibelius 19.x, Sibelius 20.x, Sibelius 21.x, Sibelius 22.x, Sibelius 23.x and Sibelius 24.x

Converts standard chord symbols to numeric Nashville chord symbols whose root and bass are numbers representing the pitches position in its major scale. It produces legacy chord symbols with numeric roots and bass notes. It will read Sib 6 chords or legacy chords.

It will handle any valid key changes. It uses the current key signature, treated as a major scale, for the numbering, and optionally lets you override the key for a selection.

There is an option in the dialog to convert Nashville chords to standard chords, and another to format Nashville chords with superscripts.

The plugin will only convert chords that can be interpreted by Sib for Sib 6 style chords, so there may be some legacy chords it will not handle.

For Sibelius 7 and later, use the shipping version of this plugin.
