As musicians we want to develop the skill to be able to transfer the musical ideas that are created in our heads naturally onto the guitar. In order to achieve this we need to know the guitar fretboard very well in terms of where all the notes are, what their musical names are and how they all sound in relation to each other.
The Ear To Instrument Video below is designed to develop both your ear and your knowledge of the guitar fretboard at the same time. Go and get your guitar, watch and listen as this video plays. After I’ve played with Olivia singing the note names the video goes quiet and its your turn to sing and play back. Go on, give it a try !
