Hey guys!

Here's a quick exercise that I still use every day,
It teaches you how to work out what notes are actually on the neck.

In time just be doing this exercise you will be able to view the guitar as note clusters and then see all the note positions!

The accent is awesome. I'm much more interested in whatever he's about to talk about , than if he had an accent from the states.

I am a bit skeptical that following this makes you able to find the note quickly at all. This approach seems to be filled with some holes, and the "time" that it takes would be incredible. It's like telling someone where the letter S is in the alphabet by always starting at A and singing the song past R.

Do you have an actual example or case study of someone that did this approach, how long it took, to where their results were usable in a playing context (this time gap is what I mean by the idea of "holes")?

The reason I ask, is because I think that the biggest drawback or inhibitor to the average person, is it takes so much time and is boring.

In my course, the "walk away when you are done" learning outcome, is designed to take 1-2 seconds max for any note. My question would be, how long using this method, if you took a total beginner and made him your average person, would it take that person to where they had 100% accuracy, and...could freely do that identification and location of any note on any fret within that amount of time?

Best,

Sean
