Guitar Notes Fretboard Trainer Information

This app is designed to teach you the notes of the fretboard. Knowing the notes of the fretboard is important to learning the instrument but is an area that is often neglected by many players. Some players simply learn the notes of the 6th and 5th strings to allow them to find bar chords and scale patterns while other only learn say the notes on the first four frets. This tool will help you master the notes on all strings all the way up the fretboard.

Identify the displayed note and get feedback if you are correct or not. In game mode, try to pick as many correct options as you can in 99 seconds or use practice mode to pick the note without a countdown timer and an option to see the correct answer.

The app supports multiple altered tunings and you can limit the range of strings or frets your being tested on. This is useful to home in on a small portion of the fretboard that is giving you trouble.

I hope this is helpful and feel free to leave any feedback in the comments below.

  1. Just starting out and found this so useful as cannot afford lessons at the moment.Really want to learn properly, thank-you

  2. This is really a great app ,learning the notes on your fretboard has never been this easy and fun ,thanx for making this app

  3. I’ve looked at so many convoluted methods of remembering note positions. This one beats them all, because you cut straight to the way the brain and hand work together. Well done.
    Every thing done in the exercise applies when the actual guitar is picked and the real fretboard is confronted.

  5. Thanks very much. this app is spot on for lazy learners, it is fun and you can stop and start any time, great.

  6. This what I have been looking for, great! Thank you

  7. Just starting all over again have not had a guitar in my hands sense the second grade now I’m 60 trying to learn again thank you this is very helpful

  8. What exercise do you recommend to memorizing fret board?

  9. Great stuff… but just need to add the option for 7 and 8-string guitars as well. Keep it up! This is a great teaching tool.

  10. Is there a version with only natural notes?

  11. This is absolutely amazing, I have always wanted to know what the notes were I was playing even in a chord structure on the fretboard. I am self taught, playing for 40+ yrs playing with a “perfect pitch ear gift” and have been stuck at this plateau a long time, basically I don’t know what I am playing I just know that when I play the power chord on the 5th fret of the “A” string, it is a “D” power chord, when I play the 7th fret on the “E” string that is my “B” power chord etc. At 11 yrs old I learned the basic 6 or 7 “COWBOY” chords, “G”, “C”, “D” (Skynyrd all day long lol), “E”, “A”, Bm7 and “A”, “E”, “D” (Clapton and B.B. King to play along with the “RECORDS” lol and also learn songs only by playing repeatedly, over and over blah blah blah (we all know). Then I had an older cousin that was very polished all over the fretboard but only played the “blues”, he introduced me to 8/12 bar blues I had no clue at that age that the blues in most cases was being played sometimes prominent and sometimes not so prominent in almost every “Rock and Roll” song I had learned by listing to 5 secs of the song at a time and then move the needle back to start (I believe they call this looping now). The Band (R.I.P. Levon Helm), Zeppelin, The Who, Hendrix, SRV, Allman Bros. R.I.P Greg Allman, he and Dwayne together again in heaven?, as Dicky Betts is swimming at the bottom of a wine bottle somewhere…. There are sooooo many others, last but not least Slow Hand: Eric Clapton.

    Thank God!!!, I have spent all the time I have available to me “REPPING” (for you beginners this is the one and only secret to learning any instrument (Dedication and Repetition!) all of this for 40 yrs now (Beat It to Death!),

  12. This is a fantastic tool and I am learning so quickly – thank you!

    If you can do one for banjo, ukulele and violin now please. No pressure, in your own time… :)

    (Pedantic note – ‘home in’ is preferable to ‘hone in’, though the latter is coming to be acceptable through usage.)
