Hey guys. I have this old guitar that's falling apart and doesn't much work that I probably couldn't even get fifty bucks for, so I figured I'd use it for practice. I also decided I should write all the notes on the fretboard so I can learn them easier. I figured if I used Sharpies it would eventually fade and/or smear everywhere, so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to go about doing this. Thanks.

well, ive seen stickers to put on the top of the neck, so u can tell where the root notes are on the E string. you could use a bunch of those.

they'll probably come off though, but whatever you do, good luck

how bout paint markers?


Is that some kind of paint/marker hybrid?

Also, I was thinking maybe I could paint them on with a stain and a tiny brush. It's a maple fretboard so it doesn't have to be something light and colorful.

actually that's exactly what they are. go to your local hardware store and ask about them.
