How to Find the Notes on the Guitar Fretboard?
Musical notes represent sounds of definite pitch. When we perform, we are constantly searching for sounds and notes; therefore, we need to learn how to find them on the guitar fretboard.
Generally, we will not remember with precision where they are merely by memorizing the visual position or by using any form of logic. You will remember where to find a sound—or more accurately, a combination of notes—as no note comes alone, by identifying the sound preceding its location on the guitar fretboard.
Once you are able to sing what you want to play, you will be ready to find the sound on the guitar. All groups of sounds, phrases, melodies, and passages are generally in a specific tonal center. This means that the note you are looking for will be one of, more or less, seven notes to choose from.
