Applying Music Notation To Guitar

These pictures are available at =

There are ONLY 12 notes in music (based off of the 7 letters ABCDEFG)

Thanks. Hope this helps. My apologies to Balitino, I’ve been very busy this week. ­čÖé

Stay well.

    Thanks, this really helped, but I’m still a little confused on something. For the top picture that shows the notes in order on the bar, it doesn’t display all´╗┐ of the notes from the guitar picture, are those just useless? Do they come in later? I’m still kind of new to playing the´╗┐ guitar so can anyone help???

    Again, thank you a ton for this video. I have been wondering that for a long time. The only question I have is this: how would notate the higher notes in musical notation? As in, all the notes beyond the notes you’ve written on the fretboard in your tutorial, and how would you´╗┐ know which string they were played on based on the notation? I do take notes on your videos, by the way. ­čÖé ­čśë

    well it depends on where the not is on the staff, if it’s below the staff you would play that note on the lower strings, or on the more bass side of the guitar. a good way of know is the G note on the staff, which is on the 2nd line, is open string G. hopes this´╗┐ helps a little.

  17. Gregg Carter says:

    sorry theres one …
    sorry theres one more thing i should add, open string G, 5th fret on D sting, and 10th fret on A string are all the same note, so it also helps to know what the note progression is. if you playing on lower notes and then´╗┐ it goes to real high notes then the G note on the 10th fret of the A string might be a better choice for the note progression.
