To get the most out of this tool you will need some understanding of what the notes of the music staff are and the notes of the guitar fretboard. If you have not learned these things yet, you might like to try our music staff notes game or our guitar notes fretboard trainer first.
Pick the Note!
Reading Music Fretboard Trainer Information
See a note displayed on the staff and click on the fretboard where that note is located. Each note on the staff may have multiple notes on the fretboard that correspond to it and clicking any of these notes will register a correct answer. As well as trying to maximize your score you should train your music reading in different positions as well. For example sometimes you may want to always pick notes between the open and 4th fret unless the note is outside the range of notes in that position, and other times you may hone you selections on say the 5th to 9th frets or the 7th to 11th fret.
Options allow you to change the fretboard to an altered tuning or to limit the range of notes being presented on the staff. You can also enable or disable sharps and flats allowing you to get used to reading the natural notes first.
Play in game mode to pick as many correct notes as you can in 99 seconds with bonus points for getting a number of notes correct in a row. Practice mode allows you to play without a countdown timer and to get the tool to show you a possible fretboard location of the note if your having problems.
Update: I’ve just updated the tool with a “force position” option where you have to pick the note in a position that the game presents to you. Once you are doing well picking notes in any given position on the fretboard I recommend turning this option on to test your overall fretboard knowledge.
