Would the notes for guitar be the same as the notes for piano? Just in case I ever do have to read the notes I'd like to know them.

P.S. I think I posted this in the wrong category, but it wouldn't let me create a thread in Music Theory.
Same notes yes.

Same notes, but an octave higher. Guitar notes are written an octave higher than they sound.

Yes. Be careful to read for anything that says the notes written are not in the current octave, like "8va" of "8vb".

All G cleff music is universal with other G clef tabs.
All C cleff is with other C cleff
etc etc with all the other types of cleff.
Remember the middle C is the 3rd fret on the A string, when you're in standard tuning of course, and make sure you're reading the right clef.

Rap is music,far better than metal for example. id much rather hear about hoes and anal sex than dragons and supressed homosexuality.
The notes themselves are the same. Most, if not all guitar music is written using the treble clef.

it's not exactly the same, when you play a C note (1st fret, 2nd string) it is an octave lower then it is written.
If a piano player would see that same note, he would play a high c, exactly one octave higher then on the guitar.

There are other instruments where it get's complicated, eg: clarinet in b flat etc..
