    What I was looking for, and I haven't found yet, is I wish someone made 3" by 5" index cards with about 5-6 frets of "blank" guitar fretboard. Perhaps 3-4 frets would be enough.

    Then when I find a riff I like, I could copy it onto the 3 by 5 card and file it away. One could shuffle the cards and play through the riffs in a different order.

    I know that this is an "old school" method of organizing, but it has worked for me in the past. It's easy to carry around cards of this size in a shirt pocket for review. Does anyone know where I can buy these?

    I've got literally hundreds of 3 by 5 cards (left over from my academic days) that are unlined! I'll probably just grab my straight edge and go to work . . .

    You can buy a rubber stamp of the fretboard....

    I have one, but couldn't begin to tell you where I got it.

    Here's what I have my students do:

    Go to my site: http://rocknrollsf.com/guitar-lessons/

    Grab the free guitar frames from the homepage (you all have my permission to use them for non-commercial purposes). Print them out on sticker paper, cut them up and stick whichever parts you need on each card.

    Or print them on regular paper and use a glue stick or something similar.
