With our guitar tutorial on Guitar Notes and Tuning – beginner guitar lesson #5, you will learn these guitar skills:
  • 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 memorising 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:

    Tom, I have been learning the chords ok. It is getting easier and my fingers are toughening up some which is helping a great deal. Switching chords G-D-C sounds like a car wreck. I’m clunky and can’t keep up with the beat. I can only hope I can get past this.

      Oh you will, everyone goes through this. Just practice those chord changes a lot, and they’ll become natural. It won’t happen instantly, but the more you practice, the quicker you’ll get there.
      As I mentioned, keep it slow and accurate at first, and you’ll speed up naturally. It may get frustrating at times, but when it does, remember that everyone went through this. Every super famous guitarist was, at one point, where you are right now.
