Another question...

What does something like, I-VI-V Mean? I have seen it many places, like for a jazz backing track or something. I don't understand.
Its the scale degrees. Like 1 2 3 4 5 6 7. Then triads are built off them. So if There was a song with the chord changes I VI V in the c scale it would be the first sixth and fifth notes of that scale.
i think. oh yea if its lower case it means its minor.
a major scale is built like I ii iii IV V vi vii (vii is dim)

in the context of a jazz backing track itd be the chord changes.
