You can see here that every octave starts with the C note. I stare at this when i practise scales ,it is puting me on the fast track to turning scales in to melody.
Have you found something that helps you learn faster? also i would make the pic big instead of thumbnail but i dont know how
Right click open in new tab shows pic the right way. i dont know why it turned out like that
I really don't think there is a way to learn how to play the guitar "faster" IMHO. I just learned the pentatonic shapes, yes all five of them, and practiced them over and over and over and over.
The thing is to build up that muscle memory when playing so that you know where you are on the fretboard without even thinking about it. It's just practice.
You know that saying, "practice makes perfect?" It applies here and holds true no matter what you're trying to accomplish.
