Notes in the 7th Position
Notes in the 7th Position
There are four main areas of the neck that guitarists tend to play in – Open Position, Fifth Position, Seventh Position, and 12th Position and above. Every guitarist should become familiar with these four main regions of the guitar neck. The seventh position is a very comfortable place to play on the guitar but it also tends to be the area of the neck that most guitarists know the least.

The position name comes from what fret your first finger is positioned. If your first finger is on the 1st fret, then you are said to be playing in the 1st position. If you move your hand to where your first finger is on the 5th fret, then you are in the 5th position. Positions are often notated in guitar music in roman numerals.

This lesson teaches the notes in this important area of the neck.
