Playing Notes on Your Guitar’s Neck

By Mark Phillips, Jon Chappell

Part of Guitar Exercise For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Use this 12-fret neck diagram when practicing guitar to show you the notes in letter names for all the frets on all six guitar strings up to and including the 12th fret. It can help you move any scale, arpeggio, or chord to a different starting note. For example, if you want to move an A major scale that starts on the 6th string, 5th fret, to play an E% major scale, simply move your hand up the neck (toward the bridge) and place your starting finger on the 6th string, 11th fret.
