Welcome To

Fretboard GEEK

Fretted instruments are great! With them we can learn patterns and move them around--change keys at will. Try that on a wind instrument!

That's the good news ...the bad news is that we can get stuck in a rut relying solely on patterns--and really not know what we're doing and why something sounds good. Great players know this--and you can too!

Give our Geek App a try to learn not only the notes on the fretboard, but how they function relative to other notes in chords or scales. Grab a Cheat Sheet for guitar from Our Store and see how we've not only collected tons of useful shapes, but what role the underlying notes play in those shapes.
