I was surfing around and found this mandolin fretboard and standard notation learning flash card page.

I'm using it to help me work on reading proper music (as opposed to tabs), but I was hoping someone had found a similar thing for working on learning the guitar fretboard.

Honestly, everyone who reads this, bookmark that link. If you ever want to know how chords are formed, how you can train your ear to recognize scales, how seventh chords are notated and where each note on the fretboard is, use this link.

There are all sorts of sets of these available in music stores and online. Some of my students have them but I will say this, a number of my students have also made their own, usually on 3X5 index cards and the ones that make their own, almost all of them, learned quicker than the ones that bought theirs. For whatever that's worth...

Peace

Just like writing notes, if you write it you will remember it!

I made my own flash cards to help memorize all the notes on the fretboard....worked like a champ....I would recommed making them yourself to aid in the learning process.

I may grow old, but I'll never grow up.

I guess it makes sense that the act of figuring it out enough to make the flashcards in the first place would be a good learning experience in and of itself.

It seems so obvious now. I should have thought of that myself.

Thanks all. 8)

This is a very entertaining way to learn the guitar fretboard...

and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life.

I used NoteCard to learn standard notation:

I learned on piano, but NoteCard also has a fretboard.

Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. Psalm 33:2-4

I've made myself some flash cards. I used some business card blanks, which are just the right size (85mm x 54mm). The stock number is an Avery one - 32016. I just add this image (which may need resizing, depending on the software):

Then, I fill in the notes and write the note name in the bottom left hand corner, so that, when I select the card, the name is covered by my thumb.

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

I saw that the other day when looking for info on bass clef notation. Incredibly helpful! And can't beat the price. :)

Lord Ariez unless your playing piano the only thing that calculator will tell you is the notes that make up the chord, obviously you'll have to find them on your own.
