If you're like most guitarists, you may already know where a couple of your notes are here and there, but for the most part, you probably feel totally lost on your fret board. And who's to blame you, really? I mean, with 6 strings, and some guitars can have as many as 24 frets, that's 144 note locations to learn! Whew! That sounds pretty intense! If this sounds familiar to you, then look no further. This course will teach you, step by step, how to easily identify any note on your guitar. By using one simple concept, it really IS possible to learn every note on your guitar quickly AND efficiently.
This course is mainly intended for beginners with no knowledge of ANY notes on their guitar. However, even if you're more of an intermediate player, or maybe you know a handful of notes already but feel kind of grey about the middle and upper section of your fret board, as long as you have the desire to learn every note on your guitar, this is the course for you. We'll start from the very beginning and learn the names of your strings first, so no matter what your skill level is, you'll be able to pick right up at any point.
The only real expectation that I have from you is that after each lesson, you'll ABSOLUTELY want to make sure to review the material so that you understand each lesson 100% before moving on. These aren't difficult lessons, but they will pile up and overwhelm you if you're moving on without being ready.
So with that said, I look forward to "seeing" you in class and showing you how one little piece of information can completely open up your guitar for you forever!
- All you need is your guitar
- A basic understanding of notes ( which notes have sharps and flats ) would be helpful, but not necessary.
- Identify any note on their guitar
