Guitar Fretboard Workshop

Community Music Center

With branches in the Mission and Richmond Districts of San Francisco and programs throughout the city, Community Music Center (CMC) is the Bay Area’s oldest community arts organization and San Francisco's largest provider of low-cost, high quality music education. During the 2008-09 school year, 2,345 students of all ages, ethnicities and income levels enrolled in CMC programs and over 17,000 people enjoyed musical performances at no or low cost.

Take your playing to the next level by mastering the guitar fretboard. Learn how to locate chords easily and play melodies that sound good with those chords. The Guitar Fretboard Workshop guides students through a system that helps them quickly find triads, the building blocks of chords. Focusing on the top three strings, this system will teach students to find almost any chord on the fretboard. Learning the corresponding scales and their multiple positions will help students play melodies that fit within those chords.
