0:00 – Intro
By discovering systems and patterns, the guitar fretboard will start to make sense. Here’s how Ayla demystifies the fretboard.
0:57 – String Names
The best way to memorize the string names is through a catchphrase like: “Eddie Ate Dynamite, Good Bye Eddie.”
1:38 – The Fretboard
Every time you move up or down a fret, you’re moving up or down by one semitone. Start by going through all the notes on the low E string and the A string before trying to memorize all six strings.
5:05 – The Fret Markers
A lot of guitar players use the fret markers to memorize fret numbers. The first dot refers to the 3rd fret, the next dot is the 5th fret, then the 7th, and the 9th.
8:07 – Building Chords & Scales
If you play a chord shape that doesn’t use any open strings, you can move it to any key as long as you start on the right root note. The same goes for scales!
10:15 – Intervals
The numbers written in the scale chart are referring to scale degrees, a.k.a. the first note, second note, etc. But these numbers also refer to intervals.
12:38 – The C Major Scale
The C major scale is the same shape as the A major scale shape but instead, you start on the root note of C.
13:59 – The A Major Scale (5th String Root)
Learning this scale allows you to play the A major scale in both positions which also unlocks more of the fretboard so you’ll know where to find all of the intervals.
15:24 – Recap
These systems and patterns are what Ayla still uses in her playing today to help understand the fretboard and uncomplicate music theory she wants to apply to her playing.
