First let's look at our major scale pattern and I'll show you how the alphabet can help you memorize the note names within it.

We started out with a one octave pattern of the major scale. Then we extended it in the lower octave with three lower notes. Now let's start in the 7th fret of the D-string. This note is an A.

Once you've memorized that note you can continue up the scale and simply use the alphabet: A B C D E F G. After G it repeats, we have our A again.

Now this is your very first introduction to a huge topic, so we're merely scraping the surface here and it's very likely that you'll have a million questions right now and that's a good thing. Just go with me and trust that it'll all fall into place eventually.
