## The missing frets technique - question about the first post in this forum

Amit,

I'm a newbie to guitar playing and trying to learn from experienced people like you how to figure out chords of a song. Taking a look at your first post, you recommend playing a song trying to find the missing fret. My (possibly dumb) question is how high on the scale do you play your song to write down that fret pattern such as in your example. Do you just play high enough to avoid the open strings in your song (so that everything falls on a fret) or is there a logic to how high you try to play your song?

Secondly, in your sample song from Kisna, you show that the missing fret is 9. You used 7,8,10,11. So I guess by "missing fret" you mean a fret that is missing "in between" the frets that are used, correct?
