Memorize Your Fretboard 200% Faster

The octave is one of the simpler patterns you’ll find on the fretboard, but it is nevertheless incredibly handy in helping figure out specific note names. I use it all the time.

When you’ve got this pattern stuck in your brain, it saves you the need to memorize all of the notes on the fretboard, which, to be honest, is a fair amount of memorization.

Why not take advantage of the pattern, and do less than half the work?

As you’ll see in this short video, that’s very possible.

The octave pattern is just one of the many patterns that I teach in the full Guitar Scale Patterns lesson. In that lesson you’ll learn how the entire fretboard is covered in patterns, and how you can use those patterns to speed up your guitar playing, and reduce the brainpower needed to create licks and solos! Playing by pattern is much easier than reading music!

Hi Janis,
Just a tip, when learning the notes on the strings take B,C and D on each string together. It makes it easier as E,F and G are directly below them. The same principle applies when you get to the B string just move up 1 Fret. Enjoy playing 👍

Thanks for bringing that information to my attention! Although I knew that, I din’t use it much ecept on the low E ans A strings. The reason why the B string is flatened(4th) is because of fingering placement. If one wants to understand what I mean by this..experiment by re-tunning the open B string up to a C note where it will unflattened like the rest. Then try to make a typical F chord on the first fret..You will see the dfferculty try to make the chord. Mabe the instuctor in this video would like to explain this better?
