Indeed, I see it kind of like training wheels, and I only have them on 1 guitar.

I thought giving this thread a bump. There is a direct link to the game/exercise:

Fretboard Note Identification Game

I found it helpful, hope others might also. smile.gif


Bumping this thread was a good call sir!

Thanks smile.gif

Hey,

I am having the same issue, so I purchased these stickers. You can buy them online, Fret Daddy Stickers.

Figured it would get in my head sort of subconsciously.

Can't post an image in this thread but you can see the URL

thanx for the tip

I'd go the old fashioned way, any day smile.gif What will happen when you take the stickers off?

Beware the sticker don't just create a crutch.

I found I learnt the fretboard in two ways,

The Caged system really helped.

Breaking the fretboard down to what I already knew

I knew the open strings,5th fret, 7th fret and 12 fret because you use it to help tune the other open strings (excepting the cool.gif

So I worked on remembering the ones in between.

Octaves also help if you know your E and A string.

So my way was a mix of various methods because I did purposely set out to learn them, it just happened as I learnt and grew as a guitarist. I think where I am with music theory happened the same way.


Good call mate - I have the same mind with you here - experience gained through practicing various methods and accepting the fact that you won't learn the fretboard over night will help you learn it much faster than anything.

Thanks smile.gif

Thanks so much & glad it brought attention to learning the fretboard. You just look down on a keyboard & can see the notes. Not so on guitar. When using tabs, I am now trying to pay attention to the actual note (C,D,E etc.) & not just finger & hand position.

Welcome again Matt (Professor) & I really like the scale per string technique. I have already starting practicing this. I don't do enough scale work as it is & this will be a double bonus in helping me learn my scales, too! smile.gif

We just did a new article in the theory section of the GMC site. Check it out, will be helpful for learning the notes on the neck.
