Hi All, I am struggling to learn the notes of the guitar neck. OK so that is not quite right, i can find the notes i want but am not able to do it quickly, I have to take some time working out the and going through every note on the string to get where i want. Would anyone be able to help with this issue? I have dyslexia which may be why i am struggling with this, however I am willing to look at anything that may help.

Slow down until you can play the notes without mistakes. Then slowly speed up, practicing each speed until you have that one down until you get to where you want to be.

Hi Alan here. As Fred says don't rush the learning, it will come, I posted few tips a while ago, may help. Look at ur guitar as 3 sets of 2 strings, E+A then D+G then B+E. See the A note at fret 5 on E string, then you will always have D note one string over. Then go to fret E7 u have B, then 1 over always E. It follows that E8's C, then 1 over is always F. Look at attchd u see you've got 6 notes & 1 octave, look for G at fret 3 & always C note next over. Pattern works same for whole fretboard.

But only have to think a bit if you start playing a song or pattern between B&G strings, then cater for 1 fret shift warp zone.  Hope you find this helps, I'll attach a fretboard note map for you.1701032606_Learnnotesontheguitarfretboardquickly.thumb.png.82b0a208ea0c7efdbe80e4a602381084.png

Hi Alan, Thank for the explanation. I think i understand and just want to confirm my understanding is correct. When I look at the Chart above, I divide it into 3, E and A strings, D and G strings and the B and E strings. So using the E and A strings as an example, the 3rd Fret on the E string is is G so that automatically makes the note Directly Below is a C, and the fifth fret on the E string is an A so the note directly below that is a D. 

That really helps, I may be over complicating things a bit as that is essentially what my dyslexia can do to me. I will work on just getting this pattern down first, then i think i am going to use a metronome to help improving the speed. Starting at something like 40 bpm?

I may also work on two strings at a time and get those down
