Fret Fun

Description:   Fret Fun is the interactive guitar flash card game that helps you learn the note names for the guitar and get you on your way to reading music. It's very simple and fun to play! Each game presents a random selection of 20 notes, displayed one at a time, and you will be asked to identify where it lives on the fingerboard by selecting its name, string number and fret number. Three challenge levels, review of missed notes at end of every game. Here's how it works:

First select the challenge level to play:

Level 1 (Just Got a Guitar) covers the notes in what we call Zone 1 - all the notes on every string up to and including the 4th fret (and the open strings). As you know, some notes have two names, such as F# (also known as Gb); both 'spellings' are included making a total of 50 possible note names to master (48 in Level 2 and 47 in Level 3). Each game presents a random selection of 20 notes, displayed one at a time, and you will be asked to identify where it lives on the guitar by selecting its name, string number and fret number. If you entered the right answer, you can advance to the next selection by clicking 'Next'. If you're answer was incorrect, you have the option of entering another answer ('Try Again') or skipping to the next note ('Next'). You get points for correct answers (5 points for first try answers, 2.5 point for second try answers) and at the end of the game your score is expressed as a percentage (after any notes you missed are be presented for review).

Level 2 (Have Some Chops) covers the notes in what we call Zone 2 - all the notes on every string from the 5th fret to the 8th fret, all spellings.

Level 3 (Virtuoso) covers the notes in what we call Zone 3 - all the notes on every string from the 9th fret to the 12th fret, all spellings.

Free practice/study sheets for each level are available at www.Music4ClassicalGuitar.com (Look for "Notes on the Guitar" in the Technique section).

Good hunting and have fun!
