OK, im beginning to understand this a little more now. When all the strings are open, their E,A,D,G,B,E,.. and when you press down on one, that is a note.
Like my E string when i press it down it becomes an F note, then in between the 3rd and 4th fret thats a G note. Then on the B string, pressing down on the first fret, or in between the nut and the first fret is C note and between the second and third fret is the D note !

Almost got it. On the E string, the third fret is the G. So you're pressing down between the second and third frets. :D

it really is as simple as ABC....A,A#,B,C,C#,D,D#,E,F,F#,G,G#.........Thats it!!!..B + C and E + F stick together.....whatever string you start at..the rule is the same......how easy is that? 8)

what did the drummer get on his I.Q. test?....

Do read the lessons on this site. They're most educational.

In the beginning, concentrate on 1 string at a time to learn the fretboard, once you've got them down, notice the relationships between adjacent strings.
