The Guitar String Names
As a beginner guitar player it is important for you to know the names of the guitar strings. Once you learn the names of the strings you will use that knowledge all of the time when tuning the guitar and learning new songs. If we use the thickest string of the guitar as a starting point, the names of the strings on the guitar are E, A, D, G, B, and E. The thickest string, or low E string, is also referred to as the 6th string. The A string is the 5th string and so on. You will probably notice that the first and last strings are both E strings. The high E string, also called the 1st string, is just two octaves above the low E string.
In the next lesson you will learn how to tune the guitar, so get ready for that. If you have any questions you can leave them here and I will get back to you.
