MASTER THE GUITAR FRETBOARD NOTES
Have you ever been caught out in the practice room by your band mates and been put on the spot to recite the note names on your guitar? Just to be embarrassed because you could not work them out a a glance. This happens to many guitarists and bass players because the neck has a lot of notes on it. On a 22 fret six string guitar thats – 22 X 6 = 132. What! Thats a lot of notes to memorise. The Octave technique of working notes out is way to slow and theres got to be a better way.
I wanted to let you know about this great new software application I discovered that helps you to learn notes, scales, arpeggios and chords on the guitar finger board. It also contains a virtual assistant to make sure you fully understand what you are learning. It’s called the Guitar Notes Master and it’s designed to teach you the best way to learn the guitar fretboard notes on the guitar and create scale patterns all over the neck. Sign-up directly below for more info about this revolutionary new software. Before you know it you will be memorising all the notes right the way up the fretboard. I wish I had a tool like this when I was an up and coming rock star ( we all think that at some stage don’t we?) Guitar Notes Master is a revolutionary computer based learning system that you are assured to get the results you want.

Built by guitarists for guitarists, this software tutor will help you rapidly develop your guitar playing skills.
The lessons are structured to teach the foundations of guitar fretboard notes theory starting from first principles of relationships between notes on the fretboard. These simple building blocks are then steadily expanded step-by-step to enable the guitarist to understand how these can then be used to form scales, chords and arpeggios. The emphasis throughout the lessons is on truly understanding the guitar neck intervals, not just learning by note.
The Guitar Notes Master method gives the guitarist a number of advantages over traditional methods of attempting to memorise scale and chord patterns:
- Understanding how intervals are related on the neck enables fluid improvisation up and down without resorting to the same-old scale patterns.
- Understanding how chords and scales are built from these interval patterns enables the guitarist to find chord voicings and scale patterns anywhere on the guitar neck in order to fit your arrangement perfectly.
- Learning to build chords from first principles means that you can play even the most complex chord without resorting to a dictionary.
- Effective fretboard navigation using easily memorable techniques will help you to find notes rapidly and improve sight-reading skills.
Learning the guitar by memorising chord shapes and scale patterns will only get you so far – to truly develop your skills as a guitarist you need to understand the fretboard, which is where Guitar Notes Master can help.
The Virtual Fretboard
The core of the Guitar Notes Master experience that really sets it apart from book learning methods is the Virtual Fretboard. This enables lesson examples to be displayed clearly and interactive questions to be incorporated into the lessons in order to ensure that the content of the lessons teaches you all the guitar fretboard intervals and how to master guitar scales and understand. The Virtual Fretboard also has a number of other features to help with learning:
- Switch display of note labels between note names and intervals.
- Highlight correct and incorrect answers as well as correct notes played on the wrong string.
- Play displayed notes/chords.
- Switch to left-handed orientation if required.
The Virtual Fretboard can also be customised to your preferences, with a variety of colour schemes and options to adjust note positioning.
Many guitarists revert back to using the octave or 5th trick to quickly work out what actual note is being played. Although it is effective Its not a very fast technique for working out your guitar fretboard notes quickly. Most guitarists know their fret notes on the E and A strings and the high E string but beyond that it becomes difficult to know the notes confidently on the other three strings. It can be frustrating for even seasoned players particularly if you have to read notes from a piece of music.
