Can someone point me to a site or preferable a book I can use to learn how to read music so I can better understand and play music. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

On this site you have some stuff under the LEARNING TOOLS heading above.
Here is a fingering chart.

Also, a unique fingering game but you need to have flash installed and active to use it.

Here's an exercise I found helpful with other instruments:

Put together a cheat sheet of all the info you need, such as notes on the staff and the string/fingerboard diagram if you don't have that memorized yet.

Take some sheet music and transcribe some tablature. Do this enough and your mind will eventually connect the notes to strings and fingering. And until that time, you've got tabs.
