Watch the Jump On It! online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from 50 Blues Guitar Licks You MUST Know

Learning your way around the fingerboard is some of the most fun you can have practicing. For example the guitar has 5 E notes of the same pitch (depending on how many frets you have!) and each one sounds different. The difference is what is called timbre which means the tone or quality of the note. So an E on the 5th fret has a different timbre than the E of the same pitch on the 9th fret. Think about that when playing, I know Jeff Beck does.
