Standard Notation Tablature Version

The lines and spaces of the staff are like stair steps. In the next exercise the first note is B. The next note moves up to the next space which is C. As you go up to the next line or space the names of the notes go up in the alphabet. As you go down, the letter names go down. One stupid but very important thing you should do right now is to learn you alphabet from A to G forward and backwards. Forwards hopefully is not a problem. Become as comfortable going backwards. This will help a great deal in you musical endeavors.

Be sure to learn the names of the notes both on the staff and on the guitar, not just where you put your fingers.
