Welcome to the homepage of Guitar Strings Notes.net
Guitar Basics for Beginners! Lets start with:
What notes are the Guitar Strings in the open position ?
The First string which is the little one at the bottom,
when your holding, or wearing the guitar strapped around your
neck,is the high open (E) string.
Second string, the next one up,is the open (b) string.
Third String, the next one up, is the open (G) string.
Fourth string, next one up, is the open (D) string.
Fifth string, next up, is the open (A) string.
Last but not least is the biggest, again open (E) string.
This is considered or called your low (E) String,
and is always the biggest gauged string.

Speaking of gauges, you’ve probably noticed before that your
top 3 guitar strings are what they call wound rounds, which are also
the 3 biggest ones. The bottom 3 are what’s called plain
guitar strings. You can see their not wound like the bigger ones.
Generally they call the the 3 wounds the bass strings, and the
3 plains the high strings.
The Electric Bass Guitar Strings Notes are all wound and are tuned to
the same top 4 strings as the guitar, E, A, D, G. If your needing the
5 string bass guitar notes, the standard tuning is low B, E, A, D, G.
Also guitar strings come in all plain sets (no wounds) for several
electric guitar type instruments including for bass and slide instruments
like pedal and lap steel guitars, also upright acoustic bass uses
the plain or flats which for bigger strings are known as Flat Wounds as opposed
to wound rounds which we referred to earlier.
Acoustic Guitar Strings Notes are no different than the Electric Guitar Strings Notes.
What’s different are the strings. These instruments are built quite
differently, played differently in general and therefore don’t use the same
gauge or types of strings. The often you may find people put some electric strings
on acoustic guitars as they prefer them. But the tunings are the same notes
unless someone is using alternate tunings, which are for more advanced players.
Same thing goes for Classical Guitar Strings Notes! They have the same open tuning notes
letters as standard guitars but again classical acoustic guitars need there own special
strings called nylons. These are partially what gives the Spanish and Classical
Sound. More tuning and notes of guitar strings coming you way soon!
