I came across this great video by Doug Marks, of Metal Method fame, which I thought I’d share with you as it has some excellent ideas on how to learn the note names efficiently…
How to Memorize Note Names on Guitar
If you, or indeed any of your students, are finding it tough to learn the names of the notes across the fretboard then make sure you check out this video.
There’s a whole host of ideas here, to help imprint those note names and locations into the grey cells. Doug has also provided all 13 exercises in a PDF file, which you can download by clicking the image to the right.
Oh hey, and don’t those fretboards look kinda familiar.. 😉
Check out the lesson on the Metal Method website.
Oh, and if you want a quick reference to the note names on the fretboard then see our handy diagram!
