I've been studying guitar for a little while, but I find memorizing notes on the fretboard very difficult. Of course I have the E strings down with no difficulty, but it seems quite tough for me to photographically memorize the notes on the other four strings. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks in advance.

If you're in PA sometime, just c'mon over and I'll show you some stuff that'll probably help. I could sit here typing for the rest of my life and it wouldn't teach you anything, but I could show you everything you need in about twenty minutes.
Ouch!

peace

I know that this topic is old but I have a trick that helped me learn the neck that could be useful for someone browsing this forum.

It's called a "never-ending scale." It's pretty simple really. Start with the C major scale ( no sharps/flats). Start on the low e string. Play the note C (8th fret). Move to the A string and play the next note in the scale (D - 5th fret). Move to the D string and play the next scale degree (E - 2nd fret).

You get the idea. When you get to the high E, come right back down the strings. Use a metronome to keep your timing sharp. When you are comfortable doing it with C, move on to G (1 sharp -F#), then D, etc...

Pretty simple little drill and can get you familiar with the neck in a hurry!
