Ok, I've been playing for about 2 1/2 years now, and I've just decided that it's about time to learn all the notes on the fretboard (only just- bad isn't it?) Anyways, I need some ideas for how to learn them. I've already tried making a diagram of the fretboard and just trying to memorise it, but that doesn't work. I've also tried doing some simple pentatonic runs on a specific root note, so that in the future when I come back to it I will remember what note it is, but that doesn't work either. I understand that, like learning anything on the guitar, it won't happen overnight, but any help would be muchly appreciated. Sorry for rambling on too. Cheers, the fro

i just do it this way , everyday i choose a random note like F# and then i try to play it from string to string everywhere on the fretboard a few times
you can also do two , three or more a day. and after a while you will know all the notes.

you could also download the program fretboard warrior , it's all about learning the notes on the fretboard. and you make it a bit more fun that way.

you can also just learn the notes string by string note for note but that can be quite frustrating

hope this helps

I had a look at this site http://www.musictheory.net , and there was a perhaps usefull device for you, Afro, its under "trainers" and then choose the "guitar trainer", you can also increase the amount of frets,

Still however, I think it's more important to know the notes relationship to the surrounding notes, then their names
