Roman Numeral Chord Notation
I would like to take an existing lead sheet with chord harmony and convert it to Roman numeral chord notation.
The purpose for this is harmonic analysis and for practicing based on harmonic structure rather than key specific notation.
Roman numeral chord notation is also useful for jazz theory exercises. I realize that correct Roman numeral chord notation would required additional chord notation structures for representing the 'basis' key of modulations, but for starters, I would like to be able to convert an existing lead sheet to Roman numeral notation.
I spent a good bit of time experimenting with a custom chord style file, but was unable to identify a way to replace the Alpha portion of a chord symbol with a Roman numeric representation.
Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions for accomplishing this task?
