guitar fretboard notes

If you can already ‘see the notes’ in real time on your guitar fretboard without thinking… then you don’t need to watch this video :-) I’ll see you next week with a video for you!

If instead you don’t know the notes on your fretboard or you can’t recall them in real time, this is for you:

… all explained here:

If you haven’t seen the original video on how to learn the notes on your fretboard, here it is:

You do not have to wait to have finished the exercises above to take the Complete Chord Mastery guitar course… and indeed, taking the course will help you learning the notes and making music with them!
