I really liked it when i saw it but thought it was stickers. it wasn't stickers, its an annoying piece of plastic hard to put on. it does the job and MIGHT help you memorize the fretboard or make you lazy. I say give it a shot and once in awhile take it off to see if you're doing better.

It's a good idea, but its got a few problems. First, it says that it fits any guitar with a 25.5" scale legnth? not true with mine. It'll only fit my les paul, or any other guitar with a 24.75" scale. Also, the plastic is really annoying to get on and off. It will not cling to unfinished wood, so keep that in mind. Its near impossible to smooth out the top on a rosewood or ebony fingerboard, so you get buzzing like crazy.I'm an expierienced guitarist who wants to learn to read music, and I may not even use this thing. It's a good idea, but highly impratical.

Good idea, not so good application

By Lazarus Long

from Texas

Comments about Hal Leonard Don't Fret Note Map:

I tried this, but found it easy enough to memorize a few notes per day, one string at a time, then drill myself on it regularly. There's freeware available that drills you on note positions, if you want to be a fret pro.

could be done/made better

By space cowboy-ojK_X

from hot-lanta

Comments about Hal Leonard Don't Fret Note Map:

it is a good idea but....it dose not stay in place and sometimes hard to line up and there is the fret buzz you have to deal with....just an after note if you have a spare guitar you don't play it might work for that as a visual aide but trying to actually play with this thing on is hard because of string muting and fret buzz.

JUNK!

Comments about Hal Leonard Don't Fret Note Map:

Don't waste you money. I thought it was stickers you applied but it's viynl thing that wraps around the fretboard and neck. It fits poorly and causes fret buzz.

Comments about Hal Leonard Don't Fret Note Map:

I found this to be the best guitar learning accessory I've bought. It fit my guitar like a glove, goes on and off in no time and shows right where to put my fingers.

Basic but brilliant

Comments about Hal Leonard Don't Fret Note Map:

Very helpful in learning notes on the neck. This is a great tool for an intermediate guitarist who is starting to learn more about theory.

I found it easy to put on, just follow the directions, guys! I only needed it for a couple of months, and then I could remember all the note locations. A good deal!
