...and it's been rough. I have the memory of a goldfish haha. I've played other instruments so I know bass clef already but mapping notes to each spot on the fretboard is killing me. I've been trying to practice/learn my scales and arpeggios to try and get the notes down, but is there a better way? For context, I have been pretty exclusively using tabs until now. I'm trying to learn the fretboard so *one day* I'll be able to improvise and jam with other beginner musicians because the only time I tried I had a terrible experience because I had no idea what to do! That experience was when I was playing piano, though, and despite playing classical piano for years I still couldn't improvise. What would you all recommend I do in terms of practicing prior to being able to jam?
