1.4 Open Position Notes

Now that you understand the musical alphabet, on the piano, let's locate some of those notes on the guitar.

We're going to walk through all the natural notes (no sharps or flats) on the first 3 frets, and open strings.

Main take aways from this lesson:

  1. Use the correct fingers for each fret - fret 1 first finger, fret 2 second finger, etc...
  2. Focus on memorising the finger pattern first, then start memorising the notes.
  3. Practice ascending and descending through this pattern, and even increase speed with time.
  4. Yes, your fingers are going to hurt. Sorry about that.
