Fretboard GEEK

Fretted instruments are great!

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.


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.
