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. All of Fretboard Geek cheat sheets and posters contain tons of shapes, but also show what role the underlying notes play in those shapes.
