Knowing your way around the guitar fretboard will open new levels of understanding and confidence. It helps with movable chords (as in “barre chords”) movable scales, learning songs, techniques, and generally being able to get around the guitar fretboard easily.
But learning all of the notes on the fretboard can be a long tedious process if you don’t have a plan.
Fret not (pun intended). You now have “Learning the Fretboard”.
I won’t pretend there’s no effort needed… but it’s easier than you would think.
We’re going to leverage your time and effort by using specific patterns and exercises to help you make sense out of the guitar fretboard.
We’ll start with the open strings. Then move on the notes on the 5th and 6th strings using an “easy to memorize” pattern. Finally, we’ll use this as a foundation to stretch across the entire fretboard.
This method will save you so much time and frustration over using rote memory alone.
And I will be a lot more fun!
