I know it's really helpful to know all the notes on the fret but what is the best way to memorize them all? Scales? If so - which scales do you recommend? Is there any way easier than just learning it fret by fret.
Thanks,

Just learn the notes, there's only 12 of them - you really need to have them memorised before you start trying to learn scales.

^ Good link actually.

Try playing this game a bit. Make sure you have the notes all down, both where thy appear on the fretboard and their sound before you check out anything else. Also, try searching through the lesson section on this site. Slashpwns has some good ones. Search "theory".

Oh come on, that's as ignorant as saying that you only need to play every other fret because the ones in between are "only sharps and flats". There are 12 notes in the western chromatic scale. Period.
There are however only 7 LETTERS assigned to the whole notes, A-G. A sharp or a flat is still a different note than it's neighbor, like A to A#. They are different notes, so are thought of as individuals, not just a sharp or a flat. Does a piano just happen to have some extra black keys to pound on once in a while, or are they different notes in their own right? Get it?

And to the TS, google for a handy little program called "Fretboard Warrior". It's a game that will help a ton with learning the notes of the fretboard.
