Selecting Lottery Numbers by...

Music

This method generates six lottery numbers from a piece of music. You need to be "musical" to perform this method, or at least you have to be able to identify what the notes of the tune are, either by amazing talent or by taking a close look at the music on the stave and working it out.

The first thing to do is to choose a tune. In this method, the melody of each tune generates exactly one set of lottery numbers, so choose a new piece of music each week.

The principle relies on the fact that in an octave (oct=8) there are seven notes. These are known as A,B,C,D,E,F,G. Taking the first note of the tune, you convert it into a number A=1, B=2, C=3, etc.

Then take the second number and convert it into a number.

Multiply the first number by 7, add the second number, subtract 1, and there's your first lottery number.

Repeat the process using the third and fourth notes of the tune to make your second number.

And so on, until you've got all six numbers.
