I currently proficient with notes up to fret #7. What's the best way to learn whole guitar fretboard?

Any tutorial or book for dummies you recommend?

Thanks much in advance.

Try making a map of the entire fretboard.

Test yourself to find every "A" on the fretboard, then every "F", then every "C',etc.

Construct the major scale on different strings starting on different notes.

personally i used to spend 5 minutes a day going up and down a string hitting a note and calling it out loud to myself as soon as i could. then you start jumping around notes on the string to make sure you really know what notes are where.

You guys are so awesome. Thanks much for your prompt responses and inputs.

@Sean, yes, that's a fun tool. I'll use it for my training.

I am trying to memorize the fretboard so that I can look at music sheet's notes while performing live.

I am currently trying to train my ear and mind so that I could recognize what note/chord is played, ie, that is, recognizing through ear only, no looking. Any tip on this as well would be much appreciated.

I am trying to be a better guitar player, you know Trying to learn more music theory, fretboard, and note/chord recognition.

BTW, I am using Guitar Pro, but I am not very good with it yet. Still learning how to use it. Anyone with experience using it to help with fretboard training and note/chord recognition by ear, would be much appreciated.

at musictheory.net there is also a chord/scale/interval ear trainer.


Singing is great for ear training too.
