Hi everyone,
I am always looking for new ways to really learn the fretboard. I have tried a few that I have even posted with moderate success. This new app that's for the ipad is really beautifully made and for a short time the price has dropped to 99 cents. I didn't realize that there is sound because on the demos I didn't hear anything but there is a way to turn that on or off..now it's even cooler then I thought. The way it's laid out is very intuitive. You can focus on any or all parts of the neck. you can change it so that you are only displaying all the notes on one two or all the strings. You can focus on a certain number of frets. You can have it display some or all of a range of notes. It's not a place to learn scales BUT if you have it display the 1,2, 3, 5 and 6 notes you can get the major pentatonic scale displayed across the fretboard (aka all 5 positions) There are two modes Freeform and Lesson mode. There are 24 or so lessons that are included but a really cool feature is what's called "roll your own lesson"
You would go into freeform and choose what ever you wanted to display for example. If you wanted to learn the 5th position. you might have the notes for the 5th,6th, 7th, and 8th frets show all 6 strings. Then you would choose lesson mode and go into the lesson labeled 0 and hit start and it would remember what you had in free form and test you there.
I think you can't go wrong for 99 cents and what I'm excited about is how well it goes along with Barrett Tagliarino's book "Guitar FretBoard Workbook" I
I was on a long car ride a few weeks ago and I had this book with me but no guitar. If I had this app back then I would have been able to work through many of the exercises which require that you have your guitar with you.
Here is a link to their website. I found it by accident so I thought I would share with all of you. Let me know what you think.
As they say "there's more then one way to skin a cat" so that has to hold true to having the knowledge of the fretboard notes sink into my thick skull!!
Take care
Maria

I know that's too bad cause I have to say it's a really good resource. Maybe in the future the developer will add it!
Take care
