Any tips or "secrets" on memorizing the fretboard?

I'm kinda stuck in the pentatonic box.
I feel if I memorize the fretboard, it will open alot of new doors for me. Should I memorize one string at a time, or would it be better to work on one note at a time, and its location on the entire fretboard?
If theres even a better way, PLEASE let know. I've got a printout I'm taking to work, so I'll be doing alot of studying there. :wink:
Thanks for looking.

Geo, have you seen the other thread here on memorizing the fretboard? There's a game for the PC on it. I haven't tried it but you might get a chance before I do.


You're welc, Geo. If you give it a try, please post up an op. I'm snowed under with work at the mo and it'll be a while before I get a go myself.
