- Guitar notes
Welcome to our 5th guitar lesson for beginners. This lesson is dedicated to a very important aspect of advancing as a guitarist, getting to know the fretboard and the notes you can play on the fretboard. It may seem overwhelming, but I'll teach you a simple way of memorizing the notes on the fretboard.
We'll also have a look at how to tune your guitar in standard tuning, which is vital since if your guitar is out of tune, the notes won't sound right. In this lesson, you'll learn:
- the relationship between the strings and notes on the guitar
- where each note is on the fretboard and how to find them easily
- the importance of tuning
- how to tune by ear (use our online guitar tuner), and with an electric tuner
This lesson concentrates more on theory than actual playing, but is all the more important. Learn the notes on the fretboard and keep in tune, and practice every technique you've learned in the previous lessons.
After finishing this video guitar lesson, make sure your guitar is in tune and then you could:
- revise what you've learned about guitar notes,
- advance to the next beginner guitar lesson on fingerpicking,
- go back to our free guitar lesson videos for beginners.
