Paul,

Just my opinion, but items like this are a crutch. There are other better ways to learn the notes on the fretboard.

The little sticky notes will tell you where the notes are on a guitar and is a great way for identifying the notes. However, I believe it makes it too easy to become dependent on using this. Remove the sticky notes and you will be right back where you started. Learning the notes is not all that difficult, if done in a systematic way. One of the best resources I've found for thoroughly learning the fretboard is a book written by Barrett Tagliarino titled Guitar Fretboard Workbook. Here is an Amazon link: http://www.amazon.co...o/dp/0634049011

Again, this is just my opinion. If you feel this will help you, by all means go for it.

Mike

Hi mset3,
Can you give a brief explanation of the method used in that book? Is it simple yet effective for a beginner?

I read about this book "the bead method of fretboard mastery revised" and it's suppose to be really good. It's hard to find though, if you can find a place to buy it please let me know. Though I prefer a real copy I found and downloaded a pdf of it until I can find it for sale somewhere.

Yes but that is not the revised addition which made a bunch of corrections to that one. :(

i already have the guitar fretboard workbook bought it on amazon just havent worked through it yet.fretboard roadmaps is another good book plenty of good guitar books on amazon.the fretboard workbook covers scales chords and arpeggios how to form them but fretboard roadmaps is similar.they help u understand the fretboard not how to remember the notes so why not have both.

I looked at that earlier and it is a bit one dimensional
Kirk's Plane Talk Material teaches that as a minor part of the whole

I read the BEAD Method of Fretboard Mastery yesterday evening. Both books take a similar path in their explanation covering scales, chords, arpeggios, modes, etc. Since I am more familiar with the CAGED system, Barrett Tagliarino's book made more sense to me. The BEAD Method incorporates several of its own forms, however Dietz does mention the CAGED system in his book. If you are looking for a quick and easy way to identify the notes on the fretboard and how they relate to the Circle of Fifths, the initial chapters of the BEAD Method will serve you well.

I also agree with althumbs, PlaneTalk will allow you to see the fretboard as a whole and put it all together for you.

PlaneTalk is well worth the money. It will give you a new perspective in expanding your guitar knowledge.

What all does PlaneTalk cover? Does it teach you how to play or just the fretboard or what? Will it help a beginner out leaps and bounds?

What makes it so much better than say Fretboard Logic, BEAD Method of Fretboard Mastery, Guitar Chop Shop or this? http://www.amazon.co...32956778&sr=1-1

Are learning bar chords useful with PlaneTalk? I was thinking about getting this, I think it would help me a long a lot but if I get PlaneTalk will it be useful still?
