Putting fretboard marks on an S320

Hi guys, I was wondering if you could help me out with some ideas, I love my s320 but the problem is Im still a newbie at playing electric guitar so I really need some marks over the frets to help myself think faster, I was thinking about cutting off some circle shaped pieces from a white paper decal and putting them over the frets but I believe this will only be a temporal solution to my problem since these marks will probably wear out and become loose over some time of playing, any ideas???

Just use the side dots. Even if you had fret markers, eventually you won't need them so by using the side markers, you're just getting there sooner

Like the others mentioned, I would just use the side dots. I have guitars with and without markers and dont find them too different to play.

If you still have real trouble keeping things in line, just use a couple small, detacked pieces of masking tape and replace as needed. No point looking for a permanent solution.

Or you can use these. They are really good they are perfectly sized so you don't notice them!!

I have them on one of my telecasters and my RG

I own 2 guitars that either have no inlays (Ovation Adamas acoustic) or inlays that provide no point of reference (Learn Zombie guitar) and I get by fine on both.

I actually think it's more comfortable to not have to peer over the edge of the fingerboard to look at your fingers.

[FONT=Verdana]I understand exactly what you are referring to. A simple temporary way to indentify notes on individual frets i.e. A B G E D F etc etc is to simply purchase colored dots from Office Depot or Staples and pick a color for each note. An example is to pick green dots for the notes G. place a green dot on each place where the G note shows up on the fret. For the G I believe there are 10 places. Learn where these are so you can find them without the dot. Then Change to Blue dots for B so on and so on. [/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]If you want to know which fret is what number quickly you can purchase little numbers as well and place them on the edge of the neck off the fret board until you memorize them. [/FONT]

Re: Putting fretboard marks on an S320

I really aprecciate all of your help, maybe youre right; it is a good idea not to put anything on the frets and just get used to the little dots the s320 has on top of the neck, I think its worth a try
