I want to be able to memorize all the notes on the neck, that way I can find scales myself. How do I get them memorized? I always forget which notes have a sharp and which ones don't. B# and Cb , and D# & Fb don't exist right?

Also scales, if I write a good song that has a good sounding chorus and verse, how can I easily find what scale to use as a solo piece?

there are some free programs in the web for learning all the notes in the frets...
but the other thing id use any scale i know well, and it all depends on the feeling you wanna give to the song, you should try different scales and see which one fits better

Alright, I will look around and see what I find. I found one somewhere at one time it had every single note in the right place, but I don't know where the site is anymore

Edit: Oh I found it. Why don't any of the guitar neck diagrams show all 22 frets?

They do exist, but they are much more commonly known as C, B, F and E.

For example, the major 7th in the key of C# is a C natural, but because the C note in C# is a C#, the 7th is called B# and is notated as that to avoid confusion between the B#/C and the C#.

You can play a solo in any key even if its different from the song. But usually a solo is played over the same chord progression.

Yes like if You play a song in the Key of C then you would want a solo in the scale of C, correct?

Thats a pic of all the notes for you. But, to make it simple, when moving up a string you go up 5 tones (notes) except from G to B, thats 4 notes.

the 5th fret on a string is the same note as the open on the string higher then it (4 for G to B). And the 7th fret is the same as the string lower (but 8th fret on B to G).

Also, there are only 2 pairs of notes with out a sharp/flat inbetween. These are E F and B C.

if you remember these tips, when ever you want to know what a note is just use the simple rules to find it, and after a while of doing this you will remember the notes...

good Luck.
