They can be used in either part or whole, though we recommend to the 12th fret, where 1 octave is completed for each string.
The color system is based on the natural connection between harmonic sounds and harmonics within visible light, starting with the seven primary colors of the Rainbow. This sequence starts Red at A above middle C and repeats for the required octaves.
This sequence presents a precise alignment between the 7 whole notes in music and the 7 dominant colors of visible light. Starting A-Red, B-Orange, C-Yellow, D-Green, E-Blue, F-Purple and G-Pink (Violet).
First things first, why would you want to put colored note Ukulele Stickers on the Fretboard of your Ukulele?
- Makes it easy to find all notes up and down your Ukulele.
- Explore new voicings “chord shapes” everywhere.
- Go free styling and finger pick your scales and riffs with ease.
So what’s so special about these Ukulele Stickers?
The fretboard of the Ukulele is a hostile environment, with vibration and pressure causing many stickers to wear and tear. These Ukulele Stickers are different. They are super slim and plasticized to maintain color which also makes them hard wearing.
Using stickers to highlight where all your notes are, will dramatically accelerate your ability to learn and play many chords, chord shapes and give you the freedom to explore Scales and Riff patterns with ease.
We like to think of the Ukulele Stickers as training wheels, a tool to help you get your balance and confidence, but not something to be relied on indefinitely, so they should be made to stick for as long as you want to keep them on and be able to be removed without causing damage to your fretboard, when you’re ready to make the leap.
How will the Ukulele Stickers help me learn to play?
Great question right, because it should be about how they improve and accelerate our ability to learn, play and explore the Ukulele. To answer this it’s best to start with what they are not!
These Ukulele Stickers don’t use a single color for a Chord as other stickers do, because knowing which notes make up each chord is far too important. By knowing which notes make up the chord you will be able to know where you are and where you can lead off from when you go free-styling.
The Ukulele Stickers do not include the Flat and Sharp notes as this is too overwhelming to the eye. Let’s say you want to find a C#, soon you will know that C is yellow, so all you need to do is to move up one step (a single semi-tone) from the C and you’ll have the C#.
