Guitar fretboard trainer android app splashHad enough of getting lost on the guitar fretboard?

The guitar is a very visual instrument.

This means that we can use shapes as musical resources when playing.

We can however rely too much on shapes because we can ‘get by’ with them, and never really get to know the fretboard in its entirety.

In order to use arpeggios and scales to their full potential, it’s essential to know the entire fretboard inside-out. Not just be able to work out where notes are, but know instantly and instinctively where every single note is on every single string.

With this ability, seeing scales and arpeggios becomes far easier and our musicianship increases exponentially.

To develop this ability we must learn the best method of finding notes and then test ourselves rigorously and at length.

Only this way can we develop the necessary speed of thought.

“But I know how to find notes on the guitar fretboard”

Many guitarists can find notes within a few seconds but this is no good when it comes to high level performing and improvising.

To achieve this level of playing we must know where every note is on the entire fretboard instinctively and with no thought required. You can only achieve this with repeated tested under time pressure. ‘Guitar Fretboard Trainer‘ provides you with the ideal environment to develop this skill.

Guitar fretboard trainer android app help2“I’ve seen other guitar fretboard trainer apps and they didn’t work”

There are apps out there that claim to help you learn the fretboard with pictures and animations but they are NOT serious training tools.

The only way to reach high level fretboard fluency is with highly focussed testing on a real guitar.

This is what ‘Guitar Fretboard Trainer‘ is for.

App version 1.1

Galaxy S5 (kltevzw)       Mark Young on 2 Feb 2015 at 04:09

Great app. One suggestion. I think one improvement would be the option to have the notes presented on a musical staff so the user could learn to read music for the guitar as well. Otherwise, no complaints.

Thank you for the feedback and the suggestion Mark. That’s a good idea. I’ll see if it’s something that could be incorporated into the next update. With best wishes, Stuart

App version 1.0     Antti Ahti on 28 Jul 2014 at 20:28

Best app I could find I tried all the free fretboard training apps for Android and some web-based I could find, but this has been the most efficient method. I feel like I already learned a lot after a couple of 5 minute sessions. (I will update the review when I’ve trained more.) One request I have is that it would be nice if it would remember the settings even after the app has been stopped. It’s a bit annoying to adjust the interval and image settings again.

Hi Antti, thank you for the helpful feedback and suggestion. I’ve now added this feature to the app, so your settings are now stored between sessions. You’ll get this latest update automatically. With best wishes, Stuart

Great App! I personally don’t think I’m good at the guitar…yet. That’s why I downloaded this app. If you are looking to learn the fretboard, (which this app WILL help you do) I suggest downloading this app! For anyone, beginner to a pro, this app will prove to be useful! Well made!

Galaxy Note 10.1 (p4noterf)      Eugene van der Watt on 14 Jul 2014 at 17:42

At first I though this is way too simple and lacking. But by starting your focus on one string at a time it actually becomes effective. Suggestion: Would benefit from tweaking the aesthetic as it could look better on a tablet. Add 1-12 on the side for beginners and when speaking the note add the relevant note to each red dot it just brings a deeper focus to memory. Good app for what it does though.

Thank you for the suggestion and feedback Eugene. I’ve now added this feature to the latest version, which you should now have via the automatic update. With best wishes, Stuart

This app is pretty basic but does the job. This is another of those tasks that can be tedious and this app makes short work of it. Easy to use and nice presentation.

Great app for guitarists of any level, March 20, 2014

By Mayte TorresSee all my reviews

This review is for: Guitar Fretboard Trainer

I highly recomend The Guitar Fretboard trainer app to anyone interested on learning guitar at any level, it focuses on a very important part that many guitarists, including myself, overlook. Through the years I’ve learned the notes, or some of them I might say, by playing a few at the time, now I’ve realised that not knowing my fretboard properly has slowed me down a lot. Thanks to this amazing tool now my fretboard has no mysterious areas, and I had fun while doing it!

As geography needs a map, a guitar fretboard needs this app!, March 18, 2014

By CostaSee all my reviews

This review is for: Guitar Fretboard Trainer

Have you ever wandered why sight reading is so much more difficult for stringed instruments than for piano for instance?

Because we’ve got the same pitch all over the fretboard and as fun as that might be sometimes is a bit confusing…hence this app!

Enjoy it.

Perfect Companion!, March 17, 2014

By Mr Ali R PaliziSee all my reviews

This review is for: Guitar Fretboard Trainer

Once upon a time I had to look at sheets of paper to remember certain guitar chords across the fretboard but this app is perfect and provides clear illustrations with prompts and built-in timing facility so you can learn at your own pace. If you are an aspiring guitarist then this is going to be the perfect companion!

This review is for: Guitar Fretboard Trainer

This is a really effective little app. It calls out notes for you to find on your guitar fretboard and has useful images to show you where the notes are if you get stuck. Simple but very effective.
