ill help you learn chords on the fret bored. the lowest pitch strings an E. you can play up the fretts to fret 12 where the note E is once again. its a difrent pitch E, but still an E. so you can play the top string and get the note of the chord e due to the patern that repetes and the sliding nature of the guitar.

E goes directly to F and B goes directly to C, the rest of the notes have a sharp/flat to them. an A sharp = B flat. with that said...
e---0--1--2
b---0--1--2
g---1--2--3
d---2--3--4
a---2--3--4
E---0--1--2
='s E F F#
and so on... then take these notes and learn them as minors, and then 7's the minors/7s slide also

the A and C chords do this also. ive been working on the C as only the botom 3/only top 3 strings alone. get a cheap keyboard that makes sound, and it will improve your knowledge of what im saying. the top string is like a piano. in all actuality all strings are like a piano, but they each start at difrent points. chords use 3 notes with difrent intervals. go back to the original E, F's for this next post

e=e
B=B
G + half step = G#/Aflat
D + 2 half steps = E
A + 2 half steps = B
E=E
process this information to the best of your abilitys. play chords knowing the root note. this will help you see the string as an individual piano key/finger. top string open is E fret 1 is F, individual piano key style. you want to learn the top string like this and then it will loop to the A chord formation ( and this does it too!!) at fret 5.

just take this knowledge 1 step at a time, and dont become frustrated. keep picking at it, eventualy you will get to the point where i am, WRITING tabs of notes that are omited from this site. ive got a diminished C# thats not listed. difrent positions on the fret bord produce difrent octives/pitches.
heres the missing sliding C# diminished
e--0------------1
b--2------------3
g--0------------1
d
a
E
csharp dim D dim so on so on so on, augmented does the same exact sliding action as does 11's and so on. dont learn 1 chord at a time, per song, it will diminish your final musical powers. its not about the final product, its about the process to get it. learn at your own speed and have fun while doing it. when you learn a note, learn it sliding so your learning 12 notes in 1 whack. practice practice practice!!!!!

so the point of my post to you is to learn the E string, then look at the rest of the strings from a refrence point of the E string. as you noted, the A string starts at the 5th fret on the E string. the D string has the same pitch as the E string on fret 10. the G string has the same note as the 3rd fret on the E string and the B string has the same note as the 8th fret on the E string. practice the chords untill you can start playing the music by sound instead of by tab.

i learned it in under 2 months. every day i would draw the fretboard out sometimes 6 times, some days 1 time. And i would look for patterns. Where do notes repeat etc. It worked really well.
