So I'm trying to learn the notes for all the frets and I ran into a "Fretboard Warrior" program which was a pretty cool idea. The free version didn't meet my needs though, probably because I'm so new. So anyways, I made my own version of this. It's not as flashy as the other one, but I think it has more features.

* Turn strings on/off
* Show last note when wrong
* Show fret #
* Do markers only
* Do whole notes only
* 1-99 minutes
* Goal given based on time and level selected

For now it does lack sound, I might add that later. This is helping me a lot. I started off easy with markers only and 1 string. Increased the level each time until I reached the goal. Then I did 2 strings, 3 strings, and so on.. Once I get those all down, I'll do whole notes.

You do need the .NET Framework 2.0 if you don't have it already from Microsoft.

Big difference and the thing I like a lot about fretboard warrior is that it also makes the sound of the note. That way I can train my ear as well as the location on the fretboard for each note.

Fretboard warrior really isnt a good way to train your ear. It can help if you hear an F, and then another F two octaves up for example. But generally, youll recognize that even without training, if you heard the first F. Sound would be a cool addition, but I already like this more than fretboard warrior.

I agree that you would not want to use something like this to solely train your ear but I've grown used to having the sound of the note play each time I'm asked to identify a new note on the fretboard. Sound, more realistic math(it wants the user to identify one note per second on level six) and a better launcher(I have to hit run each time I double click the icon) and I think that would really set this apart from fretboard warrior.

I agree, one note per second identification is a bit hard when it takes about a second to find the button you want to press biggrin.gif I have it down to about 3 seconds.

What I really love about this one is that it lets you decide which notes you want to show. It would have been really useful for me to have the string and marker only options when i started using fretboard warrior.

Well 30 years of guitar playing and I suck at identifying the notes (I work on relative notes and by ear which works just fine for me!) But this little program has inspired me to do the right thing and learn the fretboard, who knows what it might add to my playing!

Hey I really like this but can I request a minor enhancement please?

Its hard to have just the # notes to pick, I'd like to be able to work in flats as well - can there be a checkbox to flip between sharps, flats and both (well not a checkbox if there are 3 options but you know what I mean!)

Updated it with a few small things. Still no sound though..

Changed goal math a bit, lvl 7-10 are going to be pretty hard.
Added option to change sharp/flat display
Added option to turn columns of frets on/off

Plays nice and smooth and I like the options that you added. It's a really good tool.

It has refreshed my note naming skills in 5 minutes.

How did you make this? (is it easy)

Nice job man, you could perk it up a bit and sell it.
