Online resource for sight reading
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?

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!
I just realized where one string ends on the the 4th fret the next string picks it up Whoa! therefore 5th fret 2nd string is third string open,6th fret 2nd string 1st fret 3rd string ect....
um... 5th fret second string is E, 3rd string open is G
