There are two things that you
must
know about the guitar.
The Strings
Firstly you must understand how guitarists talk
about the strings.
Just a reminder that the strings are named by
how they sound rather than how they are
physically placed.
Because the thinnest string has the highest
sound it is called the top string or high string.
This string is also numbered 1.
As the thickest string has the lowest sound it is
called the bottom string or low string. This low
string is numbered 6.
The strings in between are numbered from 2 to
5. So all the strings are numbered 1 to 6 - from
the highest to the lowest.
Often strings 1, 2 and 3 are altogether called the
high strings, while the strings 4, 5 and 6 are
called the low strings.
