Guitar Blog Q and A:
Reading Music Notation | Learning the Fingerboard Notes

Q: I need help learning notes on the fretboard. Are there any easy ways? 

A: No "easy" ways, sorry. The best way overall is to learn how to read music notation, 
(not tab). It will take at least 12 - 18 months to read quite well across the entire neck.
But, after doing this you will know the neck 100%. Check out a book written by my old
sightreading instructor from G.I.T. (David Oakes).

His book is called: Music Reading for Guitar. It is one of the best books I've ever seen for learning music reading on guitar. His classes at G.I.T. were phenomenal. He was one of my favorite teachers while at the school.
