Understanding Fretboard Numbers on an acoustic Guitar

Today we are going to look at Understanding Fretboard Numbers on an Acoustic Guitar.

It's very important to understand the fret board, in yesterdays lesson we looked at How to Tune an Acoustic Guitar and we needed to use the 4th and 5th fret to get our guitars in perfect tune.

Have a look at your guitar and you will see the frets. Number 1 fret is at the top of the neck and depending on the guitar you have there will be between 20, 21 or even 24 frets on your guitar.

When you first start learning the guitar you will have to keep looking at the neck to see where the frets are but the more you practise the more natural it will feel and before long you will know where the frets are and your learning of chords will be made so much easier.

When you are learing chords you will will asked to put your finger on the 4th fret on string A or the 5th fret on the E string and then strum the guitar. This is how you will learn to make chords and then learn to play songs.

Sometimes it's easier to watch then read and this is very true when it come to Understanding Fretboard Numbers on an Acoustic Guitar, so we have found a video.
