        Well you could learn the pentatonic in every position, if you don't already know them. Otherwise you could Learn the major scale in every position, which will have a 'paint da fence' thing going on, because when you're done, you'll also know all your modes too.

          Never udnerstood how mods work :9

          I asked that my teacher at the last lesson but we didnt have enough time to analyze all that

          OF what I understood it's a pattern applied to a scale to make it sound slightly different.. Right?

              Learn the major scale in every position and then learn all of it's modes. Then do the same thing for harmonic minor and jazz minor. Once I learned major and natural minor, I pretty much just related every other scale to that.
              You're welcome here if you're of the spirit to make a sound.

                'Mode' really refers to how the scales is derived. You take a major scale, let's say C major. To start taking modes out of that scale, pick a note other than C as your tonic or home note. Let's take A. We're still using the same notes so they will have a different relationship to A than they will to C. So while from C the scale is major, from the A it is minor (a.k.a. aeolian mode). If you wanted to play a C minor scale, that would be the same notes as Eb major, but with C as your home note.

                But once you learn all your major scale positions this idea might come into focus a little more clearly.

                  I was taking a look at this the other day. Looks like you have some good stuff in there.

                    Ok guys that's all kewl, but I still can't relate for example 'C' to a fret on the guitar

                    It's sad I know

                    IS there any method to learn that?

                      well I just googled "notes of the guitar" and got this

                      http://guitarsecrets.com/all_notes.htm

                      Btw, do you that the notes are separted by two frets? Like there is a note between A and B which can either be called A# or Bb depending on the context. The exception to this is B and C, and E F which have no note in between them. So flatting a C would give a B and flatting and F would give you an E.

                        Yes, I do.. know .. .. that there's 1 step between all notes except Mi Fa and Do Si..
                        So that makes E-F and C-B which only have a half-step..

                        just like u sayed.

                          Hey no sweat, lots of us can't! A good idea is to draw a diagram of the fretboard out on paper, and start memorizing string by string. Start with the frets with markers - so low e string 3rd fret is G, 5th fret is A, 7th fret is B, 9th fret is C#, 12th fret is E, stuff like that. You can also prepare lots of little exercise games. Write all the chromatic notes on pieces of paper, then put them in a hat and draw them out and fret the note while someone times you, and try to get it faster and faster. Do the same for chords. In a relatively short period of time you'll find yourself finding notes on the fretboard in no time!
