Hi All,What does N.C. mean?I have seen it like this N.C.(F5).I have also seen it alone N.C.Always above the staff.Ihave not seen a chord on the staff below it just notes.Also why is the (F5) beside it with no chord on the staff below?
It means No Chord. If you google or search for music notation n.c. you will get a few ways it is used, some right some wrong.

Had a guitar hanging, just about waist high, and we are going to play these things until the day we die.
I believe that in this context N.C. would imply that no chord is being played really and the (F5) would suggest that the harmony would have been evolving around the F Power Chord. Per example, you could have Dm7 G7 N.C.(Cmaj7) C#m7b5 or something. This would sort of mean a break in the underlying chords BUT give you a hint on how to improvise there and is simply a matter of arranging the song.(I think, that's how I would've used it I'd like som C or C (confirmation or correction, yeah I just made that up )).

As Kahall and Oxac sassist , N.C means no chord. There are plenty of books that are very useful and instructional for music notation. I suggest THIS book. That is first semester class at Berklee if you have no idea about music notation and how to properly write or read symbols. I tested out of that when we had our evaluations before the start of first semester, but trust me book is awesome! Get it if you can
