Fretboard orientation or
basically knowing where all the notes are
is a, is incredibly important.
And it's important that you start
developing this early on,
because as we, as we go further on and get
involved in more advanced things,
it's gonna be very frustrating and
difficult for you.
If you don't know where the notes are, you
don't know the names of the notes, and
don't worry about it, many, many guitar
players that been playing for
a long time, would have difficult actually
There's difficulties involved in with the
that we have irregular intervals between
the, between the strings so
there's l, l, there's a kind of a,
a break in the pattern on, on the guitar a
lot of the time.
And also, if you had a piano, if you
played this note of C on a piano.
[SOUND] You'd know exactly where that is,
it's, it's, it's around about there.
It's around about where they, they put the
key in to, to lock the lid.
[LAUGH] But on the guitar we've got five
One, two, three, four, five so it's,
there's no shortcut to, to learning where
everything is on the guitar.
But what I want you to do as you go along
is to name the notes as,
as we're going along.
And kind of imprint that in your mind
where, where all these are, what they're,
what they're called.
After a while, that will become
instinctive, like I've mentioned in other
things, of, implanting things in your mind
so that they becomes extinct instinctive.
And you'll just be able to name the notes.
As we go along with a lot of these
exercises we're doing.
You'll start seeing these notes in, in
And slowly but surely, in fact not even
too slowly quite, quite quickly.
It will all start falling into place and
you'll get a really good idea of, of,
of where everything is and it's almost,
sometimes it can be just one day,
it just clicks, it's like learning
learning a foreign language.
You can struggle with it for a little
while or just be unsure for, for, for
a while and then one day you just suddenly
realize you can speak it because it,
it just all falls in place like a, like a
big jigsaw puzzle.
So it wont take you very long but just
kind of bear with me on this.
And make a conscious effort to name all
the notes that you're, you're playing.
Then, after while, you can drop that, that
it will just become very instinctive to
you it's well worth the effort.
