Ok I can read music and name the notes on the fretboard but for some reason i cant apply this when reading sheet music. anyone have some tips.
Ya, you just have to buckle down and learn. However, it is MUCH easier to learn one string at a time. When i started guitar i went from the high E to the low E about one a week, and its so easy for me now. So try that.
