sorry to let you wait so longg. Im more back then ever smile.gif
that picking excercise worked very well. But it takes really a lot of time to learn it without watching the tab.

as you noticed I tried to learn all the fretnotes because I hear all these guitarist say that it is really important.

Further I have been busy with my progressive metal band : https://www.facebook.com/Infinutum
And I just finished my ending exam for high school.

Sooo yesss. Im ready for a new excercise Alex biggrin.gif

I like your band! Sounds very good! I also liked your Facebook page! smile.gif
So to learn the neck might seem very complicated, but it's not as hard as it seems!
Let's simplify it!
First and sixth strings are the same and after 12 fret everything is starting over!
So all you need to learn is 5 strings up to 12 frets!
Here is the trick!
First I want you to learn all the dots and open strings!
Open strings are easy to remember if we will use a little rhyme smile.gif starting with a low E
Eat
All
Day
Get
Big
Eeasy

So for now I want you to memorize this:


To speed up the process play a note and call it out loud and than check if you are correct!
Don't go any farther just yet! Let me know when you feel comfortable and I will show you what to do next! smile.gif

Awesome! So now let's take it to the next level!
That's what I would like you to do:
Take open strings and learn the same notes on the rest of the neck
Find it on every string!







Etc.

It shouldn't take too long to learn so tomorrow I will post the next step!
Let me know if you have any questions!

Perfect! Now we need to fill out the gaps!
Opened strings now let's go to the first dot's it will get easier because notes will repeat themselves!
So do the same thing for all the dots!
Here is an example:






Learn notes from all the dots! You will start getting the system and will understand that the neck is very easy to learn! All notes repeating themselves and as long as you know the patterns you will have no problems memorizing them!
We still have 4 more exercises to go and by the end you will know the whole neck smile.gif
This one shouldn't take too long!
Let me know if you have any questions and when you are ready!

Well, I think those excercises didn't only help me know the notes on the board, but also hear the notes better.
because of that last excercise I can now find the differences better between notes. and all the octaves on
the fretboard of a note. I see improvement every day that I am learning these.

thanks !

Marc

So by now you should feel comfortable with the neck! Let's add two more dots fifth and seventh frets! Same thing as before find notes on the dots and the same notes on the rest of the neck!









As you have noticed notes are repeating themselves over and over again and it should get much easier for you at this point!
Let me know when you are ready we have two more two go! smile.gif
