The notes you have learned to play so far in position 1 are called Naturals.
The blank spaces in between these notes are called Accidentals.
There are two kinds of accidentals called Sharps and Flats which look like this:
We think of accidentals as being natural notes that have been shifted up or down.
If the accidental is formed by raising a note up, we call it a Sharp (#).
For example, if you raise F up by one fret, it becomes F#.
If the accidental is formed by lowering the note down, we call it a Flat (b).
For example, if you lower G by one fret, it becomes Gb.
