i know a tritone is an augemented forth, but that makes no sense to me.

would i be right to say a tritone is just six frets down from the root on a guitar.

so E is A#
A is D#
D is G#
G is C#
B is F
C is A#

or is that completely wrong?

A tritone is used for both augmented fourth and diminished fifth, but the original use is exclusively for augmented fourth (in major scale there are three whole steps between 4 and 7, where the augmented fourth occurs).

Now, what you've done is mixed augmented fourths with a diminished fifth and an augmented sixth. So little correction here:

From B to F is a diminished fifth, if you want an augmented fourth, it's B to E#. From C it's F#.

Yes both dim5 and aug4 are ''sixth frets away'', but that won't you get anywhere. You need to abandon that ''just x frets here and there'' kind of thinking, otherwise learning intervals is pointless if you don't really understand what it's all about.

If you don't want to learn the theory behind it, I usually think of a tritone as one string higher and one fret higher than whatever note you're on (except between G and B strings, where its 2 frets higher like a power chord).

But knowing theory will allow you to know when and how to apply tritones. Yes it is aug4 but I always think of it as dim5, just because 5ths are easier for me to locate when I'm playing.
