Learning about the Fretboard
We know that a note is any one string played at any one fret, including the six open strings.
So let's look at the Fretboard and explain how the notes are arranged.
Each fret of each string has a different note name...including the six open strings that are also notes.
Look at the fretboard image below. Notice some frets have two note names and some frets have only one letter.

Some frets have a Sharp and a Flat and some just have a letter.
If you follow each string from the nut or the white notes at the zero fret to the 13th fret, reading left to right, the letter names go in order alphabetically! (For a left-handed guitar, they go right to left.)
Another good thing to remember, is that the notes on the Zero Fret or nut are the same as the 12th fret notes!
