Know Every Note on the Guitar in 9 Days

Know Every Note on the Guitar in 9 Days
Knowing every note on the guitar is a challenge unique to the instrument. A saxophone has only one way to finger each note, while a guitar usually has a few different strings and four fingers to choose from. String a few notes together and the permutations of how to play them will wreck your brain.

That is, if a piece is in the key of C major, the majority of pitches will be those found in the C major scale. The tonic and dominant scale degrees are considered the most important, and since the key defines which pitches fill these roles, it also helps establish which pitches will be the most important in a given piece or section. Once we know what scale we will be using, we also know that the harmonic content will be drawn from that scale.
