I have problems with learning music theory and apparently it's important so, very simply, how can I learn notes (on guitar)(that was the problem.)

memorize them on the fretboard, then on music staff. They go in this order: A A# B C C# D D# E F F# G G#

learning notes on guitar is like wiping the dust off a rock and finding out that the lost city of atlantis is underneath it. theory is important to an extent but not so important that you can't play without it. but learning notes is easy. you have C,C#,D,D#,E,F,F#,G,G#,A,A#,B,C or C,Db,D,Eb,E,F,Gb,A,Bb

start on whatever string you want. if you start on E the open string is E, the first fret is F, the second fret is F#/Gb and so on...
