The best way is to first learn the names of all the notes on the fretboard, then to learn about scales, particularly the major scale. Then learn about chord construction, and various chords' formuale, then to put the two together. There are plenty of threads about scales and chord construction around so just have a quick search.

fyi chords are the same on guitar and bass. You just have less strings. There are some good chord lessons on ug. I suggest you look at them.

They're not the same. If you try playing a G chord in the same position as guitar, it's going to sound like garbage due to the octave difference.

You have not tried hard enough on your own, at all, period...

They are the same. Some chords just sound bad on bass because in those low frequencies it just gets muddy. Nature of the instrument.

Yeah, but you can't just use the same structures of chords. You need to use different frets. For example:


G--12------
D--14------
A--15------
E----------


This could be E major, as opposed to


G--1---
D--2---
A--2---
E--0---


which would sound like garbage. I'm not disagreeing with your theory or anything, just saying that you'd need to use different structures to get a better sound.

Isn't this a C major?
