[Fretboard] Musical Notes [Octaves]

Understanding what the notes of music are is fundamental to playing the guitar. Its really simple as shown in the lesson below.

The Musical Notes
 
In ALL of music there are just 12 notes. Here they are below:
C
C#
D
D#
E
F
F#
G
G#
A
A#
B
NOTE - All notes have a sharp between the except B to C and E to F.
Thats it! Although there are more than 12 frets on the fretboard, these are just the 12 notes above, being played in different octaves. (See Octaves section for explanation)
 
Why must I learn the notes?
I have had many students who said to me, "I dont want to learn the notes". It is important to know the musical notes for two reasons:

1. You must know the notes to be able to communicate with other musicians.

2. If you want to become a good player you must at least know basic theory.

Commit the notes to memory and begin on the road to being a great musician.
