Well I'm finally taking the plunge going to try to learn sight reading. Anybody know of a chart that shows me where every note on the fretboard is in relation to the music staff?

Create one for yourself using Powertab.

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

Hey Nick, Tom, when are those exercises for sight reading coming down the line? I've been looking forward to that ever since it was announced!

Learning sight reading... That's something I've meant to do for a while. Problem is that tabs are too easy to use. When the partition includes both the tab and standard notation (like in some guitar magazines), I tend to only look at the tab portion. Tabs just feel more natural for a beginner like me...

Anyway... I have started reading David's article and realized I also needed to get better at recognizing key signatures. Well, I still have much to learn!
