Confusion with reading/writting music for guitar
Ive searched all over the net yet i havnt found somthing that clicked for me, so i thought id ask here.
Basically , i havnt been playing for a couple of months due to a nerve problem, which isnt getting better and puts me in so much pain i cant play so i thought id try and learn some stuff about reading music so that i can still keep musically active.
I understand how on the keyboard/piano you have the bass and treble clef's, so on each clef you only have a few octaves in which you work (i think yeah?)
But on the guitar the musics only written on the treble clef. I just worked out, on a 24fret guitar there are 14 differnt E's for example, now how the **** would you know where to put each octave on the stave. Thats what puzzles me, if theres a piece of music with the notes 'e g aa b' on how do you know what string/fret to play it on?
hopefully you guys get me, it would be great if you could give me some examples as well as explanations.
