The Guitar Fretboard Layout – Lesson 6 Brian Haner Sr. An explanation of how the guitar fretboard is setup in relationship to the chromatic scale. Syn’s Tips This lesson is to simply introduce you to the fretboard. Don't worry about having to know all of the notes before you can play guitar. I only knew about a third of the notes on the fretboard until a few years ago. The main thing is to have fun! You will be introduced to a lot of material that you don't necessarily need right now or care to learn maybe even ever and That's OK! Our main objective is to introduce you to all of the skills that make you a well rounded player but there are a lot of great players out there that don't need or simply do not care about every single aspect of the guitar. You may only like to play chords and write music. You may only want to play the Blues or Heavy Metal. Whatever it is, just enjoy the process and remember, you can always come back to this stuff and in fact, I suggest that you do because all of this information can slowly be forgotten over time.
