    Hi there,

    I've been looking for a fretboard poster to make my improvising a little easier. I noticed that there aren't that many fretboard posters for 7-string guitars. Are you aware of any sites where they have those? Thanks for your answers.

    Best regards,
    Marco

    Make one. It may be a little time consuming, but what you gain in return is priceless.

    Hi,

    thanks for the answers. I already started creating one yesterday, but my image editing skills leave a lot to desire. I guess I will take my time and get it right if that's my only option.

    My tuning is usually B-E-A-D-G-b-e. Occasionally I drop my 7th string to A.

    that depends entirely on your tuning. If you're going standard from E4 (treble string) to B1 (bass string), yes, the 2nd and 7th are the same.

    EDIT, got ninja...ed. Yes, that's the game. Doesn't matter your image editing skills, since this is mostly schematic. What you gain with doing this poster/banner/whatever is the real thing.

    I am happy to do this and can do it quickly. If you describe what you're looking for exactly I'll post it later. (I work in Adobe Illustrator and already have a bunch of graphic assets that I can use to throw this together quickly.)

    Beyond just 12 (15? 24?) frets and 7 strings, do you want all natural note names?
