MEMORIZING THE FRETBOARD




FEW TIPS ON HOW TO MEMORIZE THE FRETBOARD IN SHORT TIME

IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW EACH NOTE ON THE FRETBOARD,
BECAUSE IT WILL HELP YOU A LOT WHEN YOU ARE PLAYING SONGS OR DOING SCALES.

BELOW ARE SOME TIPS TO MEMORIZE THE NOTES ON THE FRETBOARD


FIRST YOU MUST KNOW THE NAMES OF THE NOTES ON EACH AND EVERY FRET
ON THE NECK OF YOUR GUITAR.

FOR EXAMPLE IN FIRST POSITION, THE OPEN STRING
THE NOTES INCLUDED ARE E A D G B E


e|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|
B|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|
G|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|
D|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|
A|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|
E|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12


NEXT IS TO MEMORIZE THE NOTE WITHIN THE POSITIONING DOT MARK OR FRETS
3, 5, 7, 9, AND 12


e|-----|-----|--G--|-----|--A--|-----|--B--|-----|C#/Db|-----|-----|--E--|
B|-----|-----|--D--|-----|--E--|-----|F#/Gb|-----|G#/Ab|-----|-----|--B--|
G|-----|-----|A#/Bb|-----|--C--|-----|--D--|-----|--E--|-----|-----|--G--|
D|-----|-----|--F--|-----|--G--|-----|--A--|-----|--B--|-----|-----|--D--|
A|-----|-----|--C--|-----|--D--|-----|--E--|-----|F#/Gb|-----|-----|--A--|
E|-----|-----|--G--|-----|--A--|-----|--B--|-----|C#/Db|-----|-----|--E--|
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

WITH THIS EXAMLE, YOU CAN EASILY MEMORIZE THE OTHER FRET,
BUT BE SURE YOU MEMORIZE THE CORRECT NOTES

ANOTHER WAY OF KNOWING OR MEMORIZING THE FRETBOARD

AT FIRST WHEN I STARTED LEARNING THE SCALE, IT TOOK ME SOME TIME BECAUSE
IM HOLDING MY GUITAR AT THE SAME TIME LOOKING ON THE SCALE CHART AND THE
FRETNOTES OR THE FRETBOARD CHART THAT IS IN A PIECE OF PAPER. IT WILL TOOK
A LONG TIME TO MEMORIZE THIS NOTES AND LEARNING IT AT SAME TIME. SO I DECIDE
TO DO SOME TRIP ON MY GUITAR, I PUT WHITE STICKERS ON THE FRETBOARD I WROTE
THE NOTES ON EVERY FRET AND STRING LINES, AND NOW I CAN PLAY SCALES AND SONGS
HOLDING ONLY MY GUITAR AND IT HELPS ME A LOT
