resently ive been really getting into modes and that sort of thing, and with modes you need to know EVERY SINGLE NOTE on the guitar.

now if your like me and all you want to do is shred, learning every notes is the most boring thing in the world.

so what i am asking is if there is any special way or method to make this happen quicker,or make it easier to understand, or help with memorization, or even just be less boring

i would really appreciate it if you would give your advice/suggestions


For the record, i tried that Fret 2 Fret thing at ( http://www.fret2fret.com/ ) and that was a waste of time, it did not do anything really to help, if you don't believe me search it up abd try for yourself, but im just saying it didn't work on me

EDIT: i have currently been using the way where you asend up the neck on one string, call the name out and look at where it is, the i desend doing the similar way

Why not. Wank your musically illiterate heart out. It's not that hard. If you know your alphabet you know your notes.

its just

C C#/Db D D#/Eb E/Fb F F#/Gb G G#/Ab A A#/Bb B/Cb

in different order - the slash notes are enharmonic

How much skill do you currently have? Because if you are just a beginner I have some ideas, but I kinda need to know your skill in music reading to suggest something.

Try this or get yourself Fretboard Warrior... personnally, I prefer Fretboard Warrior cause you don't have to be on internet to use it, it goes all over the fretboard (not only 5 firsts frets) and you can hear the note aswell... so it trains your Ear (and you can even use it as an Ear Trainer later... you'd listen to the note and tell which note it is )

Learning all the notes over the fretboard takes time but it's worth it.... Good Luck!
Note: Sorry if my grammar and/or vocabulary isn't very good, English is my 2nd language!

laazy guitarist!

Remember how you learned to read? Practice, practice, practice!
You weren't like: what the f*ck mom? 26 fricking letters!?

How about, learn them? I'm learning the notes on the fretboard too at the moment, but it's just something that you gotta learn. You'll be the better guitarist for it.

Call the note names out, not just during scales, but also while your playing with songs.


Yes, do this.

And on the same topic, get into the habit of singing what you play while you play it.
