I think site is brilliant as its helps me to practice notes either on fret or staff. I would learn music and I pretty sure this site will help me.This would save paper and ink in long run. So thank you and keep up good work.

After 35 years of teaching in college and private guitar lessons I've never come across a better tool than William Wilson's Fret Tester for fretboard memorization while learning music notation! I'll be sure to send all my students to this site and get in on the brilliant learning tools and games!Peter Pupping,
