Why it’s important to learn the guitar fretboard
You spend a lot of years practicing and playing guitar so it’s important to make the most of it. Whether you are a rock-guitar improvisor or a classical guitarist, it’s essential to know where you are on the fretboard.
One way to learn the fretboard is to study a sheet with all of the notes on it. Download this guitar fretboard map.
Fast Approach to Learning the Fretboard
I still remember my practices as a kid learning classical guitar. I got pretty good at reading and finding notes all along the 1st string. But when it came to the other strings I was lost! If only I knew the notes back then.
When I think back, if I had been able to know the note names of those other notes I could have spent more time actually practicing. Knowing the importance of this now is why I created a course to help learn the fretboard in a fast and methodical way.
The following video shows some new content that I have added to my courses recently on both Udemy and Skillshare. Take a look.
