No, no , no! The last reply was totally wrong.You were pretty correct in your guess as to what 1, 4, 5 are. It means that you play chords based on the 1st note of the scale you are in, the 4 note of the scale and so on. For example, if you are in the key of C and you are supposed to play a I chord, the notes in the chord would be C, E, G.
Of course, you just finger the C Chord. Hope this helps.
