Do This EVERY Day to Know ALL Your Notes & Keys

If you want to learn your intervals, keys and chord movements you actually have to do something more than just learn songs, licks, riffs or scales. In this video, I’m going to show you how, (even if you create a daily practice routine), you still might have a tough time with intervals, keys and chords...

The layout for these ideas won't be clear to you on the guitar neck. So, to start getting to "Know All your Notes and Keys anywhere on the Neck" - particularly the 6th, 5th and 4th string roots - you'll need a tracking system that functions off of a template to be able to memorize the notes as they should be seen.


Today I’m going to show you something that you can do every day to help you (not only learn your notes better all across the low strings where you build your chords off of), but along with that idea, you’ll also start to better understand your key signatures.

Along with that, you'll also learn how to visualize the patterns of the; major, minor (or Blues), Root, 4th and 5th chord progressions, (otherwise known of as the classic “I, IV, V” chord movement).

The best part about the system I have for you today, is that you can do this in the morning, or during the day, or at night… it takes very little time from your schedule.

And, if you do this, I can guarantee that you’ll better comprehend how the 4th and 5th intervals are mapped out all over the guitar fingerboard.

So, let’s get started into this idea, right now!

4th Intervals:
“Here Comes the bride!” 

The movement of a 4th is directly vertical. In the example above an "A" note on the 6th string 5th fret moves directly up to a "D" note on the 5th string 5th fret.

The associated sound for musical recognition can be the song "Here Comes the Bride."

These 4th intervals can continue stacking veryically to the higher strings. Notice in the diagram above as "D" moves up to "G" and then the "G" continues up to "C."

The process can continue along the fingerboard using any note (see the diagram above). These 4th interval movements continue with the exact same geometrical design (vertical) across the entire fingerboard.


I wanted to take a moment to let you know, that if you have an interest in expanding this knowledge further, then I have a great offer.

With any donation over $5, or any merchandise purchase from either my Tee-Spring, or my Zazzle store, I’ll send you a free copy of THREE of my most popular digital handouts.

One is called, “Harmonized Arpeggio Drills” (it’ll train you on developing your diatonic arpeggios).

Another one is my “Barre Chord” handout which includes a page showing all the key signatures along with a chord progression that applies barre chords.

Plus, you’ll get my Notation Pack! It has 8 pages of important guitar worksheets for notating anything related to; music charts, guitar chord diagrams, and TAB.

Just send me an email off of the contact page of to let me know about either your donation or your Merchandise purchase and I’ll email you those digital handouts within 24 hrs.


5th Intervals:

Next, let’s check out how the patterns work for 5th’ intervals:

“Flintstones – TV Theme”

The 5th interval example (above) demonstrates how an "A" tone relates to its 5th (an "E") from the 6th string 5th fret to the 5th string 7th fret.

Take note of the geometrical shape of what it looks like to establish the 5th interval on the lower strings. This shape can be stacked like we had done with the 4th interval. However, when stacked the 5th travels more laterally along the fingerboard.

Practice moving the stacked 5th interval off of different notes on the fingerboard. The combinations of the stacked tones will produce interesting harmony ideas through the creation of "add 2" chords.

The I-IV-V template:

The combination of a 4th interval along with a 5th interval on the neck will generate a geometrical shape that looks like the letter "L" placed upon its side.

Use the "L" shape "4th and 5th" template to play through Major, Minor, or Dominant 7th chords on the neck.

Practice creating chord progressions off of the template using any order and sequence. Also try mixing chord qualities as well.

Once you have an understanding of the 4th interval layout, the 5th interval movement, and how they relate to a ROOT note for creating the I-IV-V chord progression, you’ll be able to build new chord progressions quickly and easily every single day until eventually all of this information will become second nature.

All it takes is applying this routine and getting into doing this on a daily basis. You’ll get solid musical skills out of it, that will go a long way toward improving your understanding of the; guitar neck, your use of keys, along with, your chord knowledge.
