I just got AFT Pro again after not having it for a few years, and I had forgot how amazing this is at teaching where exactly every note on the fretboard is and how to identify each note and each scale position immediately.
I used this in the past for about a month, a half an hour a day. Within that time, I had every note up to the 22nd fret memorized, and I lost the program due to a computer virus. The version I just downloaded has even more features than the last one I used, and its very versatile, teaching chromatic scales, special exercises for flat, natural and sharp notes, string by string training and more.

I find it makes learning chords easier and faster and makes scales much more understandable because you know the notes you are playing before you play them.

I can't say where I downloaded it, because I got it free, but you can find it if you look.

Doesn't matter how good you play, this little tool will make you better.

Well, you convinced me. I downloaded the free version which is the starter version. If that goes well, I will upgrade to the full version.

Pricewise, it appears to always be $49.95 US. The "only until" date is updated by a few days every few days. That's a scammer move, therefore I am out.

It's a very standard practice these days. It started over 20 years ago after one of the recessions. I believe it started with the clothing industry and ballooned from there. As I am sure your are not walking around naked, you have likely been a victim of this marketing scheme and not been aware of it.

There are phone apps that do the same thing for less and look like they were coded this century.

There are a bunch in the iOS App Store. I think the one I used on my old iPad was Fret Wiz. It was for pay ($4) but there are free ones too.

Just google what you want for your android phone OR go to You tube!
Yep. Thanks. I did that after my post. I just wondered if there was a better one than what I found but I took the top rated one. It's okay but not what I expected. I can figure out what note is where but I am slow at it. I guess I just need more practice at it.

So is the App I downloaded. It puts a ? on a fret and you have to guess what the note is. Is that similar to Fretboard Warrior?

Fret board warrior puts a visual dot on the note and simultaneously sounds out the note! You can play in 2, 5 and 10 minute increments!

And best of all it's free!
