  1. Hi, I’ve been playing guitar for a while, but never knew the notes or where
    they were on the fretboard, or how to approach learning them, I just played
    by ear, but I always wanted to know. I am no good with the numerical system
    most teachers show, (I have tried and failed so many times, I’m just not
    wired that way) But this…….this,….. IN ONE BLOODY DAY……explained
    the whole fretboard and now I know. Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you
    again.

  2. Thanks Andrej. Although to be honest it is not very important. You can call
    them by their note names as well E, A, D, G, B, e. Some people are very
    attached to the old way, it’s not mandatory for my method.

  3. Hi, I appreciate your comment. I shouldn’t have written “even better” – I
    should just have written that the card system worked very well for me. I
    was working my way through Frederick Noad’s good guitar book, “Solo Guitar
    Playing,” and when I got to the 5th position and 7th position, doing the
    exercises in the book wasn’t enough for me to easily remember the notes on
    the upper frets. I then said to myself, “There must be a better way.” So I
    made the cards and used them to test myself every day.

  4. I think it’s important to make guitar videos from this point of view. Well
    done, hope more people figure this out.

  5. The guitar doesn’t span two octaves. From the Open 6th string (low E) to
    the 12th fret of the 1st string (High E or e) there are 3 octaves. Beyond
    that the range depends on the type of guitar.

  6. This method works only for a few chosen — like one in a million. My mind
    does not work this way. 

  7. Why on earth would you reverse the standard numeric order of the strings?
    You lost me right at the start!
    Also, the reversed camera shot is extremely confusing. It would be better
    if the camera faced you.
    Cheers,

  8. what ive figured out finally after years of struggling to learn how the
    electric guitar works is i found a guitar note chart and on one i had all
    the natural notes from A to G on all six strings, then i did one that only
    had the sharps and flat locations, im actually getting it after years of
    just messing around with it im finally getting it
