learning the fretboard
hey guys i'm in my first semester of college for music ...i'm learning theory, taking a bass class, and a vocal class...i've memorized the major scales in the circle of 5th's, so the major key signatures, been practicing rhythmic accounting etc etc, practicing with a metronome ect ect...now i really hate to say it like this..but well...i realized i don't know all the notes on the fretboard...i know them..but it takes time its never like "oh hey thats an A , thats a F# " ect ect...just wondering what i can do to speed up my learning the notes on the fretboard, i'm looking for something simple and practical ...i'm starting to play the first 5 frets on each string saying the notes out loud and its starting to help (though i JUST recently started this) any other tips to help me out?:bassist:
Went to a clinic a few years ago featuring Anthony Wellington. He is a big proponent of learning all the notes on your bass.
Something like this:
Start with open E, and chromatically find each E on the bass.
Do the same with F, F#, G, etc.
If you learn one note each day, you have learned the fretboard in twelve days. Or do one per week, one per month, etc.
There's lots of advice on this thread.
If you do a search, you will probably find others.
Thanks guys, really appreciate it !
