    Default Stickers for fingerboard?

    I saw a picture somewhere of a set of stickers that were affixed to the fingerboard to map it. I would like to learn melodies and that seems like a fast and easy way- they may have been hand made, but I figured I would ask. Anyone know where to get such a thing?
    My Makala is screaming for them.
    Thanks in advance- TCK

    Those are decorative....I think the OP wants the notes of each string on each fret.

    AHA!

    Maybe he was thinking of WHetu's 'ukulele:

    I stick stickers on my fretboard for decoration it looks quite cool. But labeling the frets is a cool idea I need to learn each note and it looks like an easy way to do it.

    We have a POS Rogue Soprano at my in-law's "family compound" for everyone to mess around with. My SIL asked me to mark the notes on it. I used a silver Sharpie and just wrote on the fretboard with that. Worked great.

    I was wondering, does the stickers peel slightly, when you pluck or strum or place your fingers on them?

    I don't know if these are any good... but they look like what you're looking for.

    I don't know if you put these stickers on your fret board, left them on for a while, would they peel off without leaving any paper and or glue behind???? I would hate to see some new uke player learning on a Kamaka, Kanile'a or KoAloha and then getting residue from the glue on the fretboard!!!

    Thank God the Tiki Bar is open!!!!
