Fret Tester is a fretboard trainer that will teach you to read music on the guitar, mandolin, or bass. From learning the names of the notes on the fretboard to reading standard music notation, Fret Tester covers it all. It was written by educator William Wilson, author of the book “Guitar Games: Learn Guitar. Read Music. Fight Space Monsters,” and is based on years of music teaching experience.
