Do This First
Play these 5 tones while saying the following [go through each point for all 5]:
- Note-tone name – EGBDF
- Note-head location [line and the corresponding number].
- String/fret combination
- All of the above – play middle E repeatedly while saying: this is middle E, it’s the first line of the staff, the bottom line, played on the 4th string, fret 2.
See the note-head on its line, in your mind, as you say any of the information on the list.
And, again, take notice that EGB is an Em chord. EGBD is an Em7 chord. The F is a b2 to Em.
Do this until you know that you know it.
