Learning Notes on Guitar


One of the tricky things about learning guitar is the notes are more visualize than say a piano keyboard. Whether you are beginner or advanced, you will need to memorize the notes and up the entire fretboard.




The best approach is to start from any open sting and learn each fret one at a time all the way up the neck. The good news is you really only have to memorize up to the 12th fret and the notes repeat from there. For example starting from the open high E string, go up one fret at a time - EFF # GG # Bb BCC # DD # E, and so on. Repeat this on each string. Over time you will simply memorize that the 3rd fret on the E string is G and the 5th fret is A, etc.

An easy hint is the dotted frets, 3rd, 5th, and 7th frets, mostly the natural notes with the sharps and flats in between. Test yourself by picking a random fret from the neck and figure out the note.
