Learning the guitar fretboard and strings
In our first homework assignment you were asked to fill in all the notes of the fretboard. Your illustration should have looked something like the one below. Our illustration on the homework did not have this many frets though.
In our next lesson we need to work on the open strings. Your guitar whether Spanish, Guild acoustic, Les Paul, electric, old or new should have six strings. Each string like each key on the piano has a particular purpose.
The Low E string or Fattest string when picked open (not fretting it) should sound the Low E note or tone. However, that's only true if your guitar is properly tuned. You will need to read up on tuning your guitar. Tuning is very important, so in this lesson we will cover the six strings, their names and placement.
An open A tuning source has been included in the tuning chapter. You would use this source to tune the A string. Then you would read up on tuning the remaining strings.
I would like for everyone to review the lessons covering the guitar fretboard and strings.
