The third string of the guitar is the G string

I'll repeat the music mantra:



THERE ARE NO SHARPS OR FLATS BETWEEN B and C

THERE ARE NO SHARPS OR FLATS BETWEEN E and F

The notes on the G string are:



G---G#---A---A#---B---C---C#---D---D#



And also as before, we are only working with SHARPS (#) and forgetting flats.

So you'd guess the next one after D#, yes? E

Once you know just one note, you can systematically identify any note on the fretboard

LEARN THE NOTES ON THE FRETBOARD - B String




The second string of the guitar is the B string

The notes are:


B---C---C#---D---D#---E---F---F#---G---G#


And you'd realise we recycle back to A after the G sharp

LEARN THE NOTES ON THE FRETBOARD - E String


The first string of the guitar is the E string, exactly the same as the 6th

The notes are:



E---- F---- F sharp ---- G ---- G sharp ----A ---- A sharp ----- B---- C

And keep going up the neck. It’s a good idea to test yourself



SUMMARY:

It’s highly recommendable to learn to identify the notes on the fretboard, it will speed up the learning process
Consider a more logical approach to learning to read music than Every Good Boy Deserves Fruit
You only need to know the alphabet from A up to G
Once you get up to G you start over again at A

Learn the alphabet backwards from G to A


There’s no sharps or flats between B and C

There’s no sharps or flats between E and F


A sharp (#) is one note higher
A flat (b) is one note lower


The approach I have used is one that I have developed from observing the learning blocks that I have noticed in students over a 35 year period.

The next document will cover FLATS instead of sharps
