No Stickers On The Frettboard

Recommended Posts

Sell teaching tool.  I spend considerable time flat on my back playing with eyes shut. I can be nodding off but I still get some practice in. The logic there is taken from singing. No keys, no frets, no fair peeking... Anyway lines and improvising int too bad. It's chording blind I find the bear. Crawling forward, but forward.

I put small pieces of tape on the neck of my banjo when I first got it. A 5 string banjo is typically tuned to open G so I marked the chord for each fret.

I have a Parker tele type with maple fret board, no markers. Took a sharpie and put some black dots in right places. Not for me but for friends if we're working out some song. Beats them counting 1 2 3.... etc to figure where I am. Besides they can only count to 9....

When I ordered the rosewood neck for the Barncaster I ordered it without any dots, but they made a mistake and put side dots in. I'm glad they did. I never realised how much I rely on those, especially with no FB dots.

if you’ll notice, the chords follow a very simple, easy to remember sequence...  but some folks like sticky nasty crappy adhesives all over the fingerboard and everything else...  lol...  to each their own...
