If you can -- congratulations, you belong to the elite among musicians. And if you don't have this ability yet but want to develop it, you can start today itself and within a few weeks you can effectively acquire the skill and bring your playing to a higher level.

Here are some of the things that you will be able to do (or do better) after improving your fretboard skills:

  • You will understand chords much better. No more "a finger here and a finger there...", but real notes - A, E, G, D....
  • You will learn chords faster.
  • You'll also be able to create and improvise any chords on the spot. If you know which notes make a chord (e.g. C major = C + E + G) then you can immediately play it in many different ways and places, all over the fretboard, according to your inspiration and creativity.
  • Fretboard knowledge also means that you will know where to play any note without fumbling around.
  • You will understand scales much better, and learn them faster.
  • You will be able to use the scales you learn with carefree abandon.
  • You will have an advantage and a frame of reference for improvisation.
  • You will be better able to translate the notes in your mind into music.
  • You will be able to read sheet music more easily.

You won't need any more those "chord charts" or "fretboard charts". Rather, you'll have a master chart fixed in your mind and at the tips of your fingers.

While improving our playing sometimes we get stuck and we don't know why. In many cases, learning the fretboard can get you out of a rut and running again.

With a fluent knowledge of the fretboard you will better understand what others are playing. When you will see another guitarist or bassist playing, you will immediately know which notes they are playing, and make much more sense of it.

It will also help you to observe, remember, and then use any good lick or riff that you notice when somebody else plays.
