Notes on the Guitar
Strings 1, 2 and 3.
To begin work on the guitar we will have a look
at the notes on the first three strings.
Remember these are the thinner strings – the
higher sounding strings. They are often called
the treble strings. Notice that each string
takes the name of the open note.
String 1 – “E”
E F G
Fret: Open Fret 1 Fret 3
Finger: 0 1 3
String 2 – “B”
B C D
Fret: Open Fret 1 Fret 3
Finger: 0 1 3
String 3 – “G”
G A
Fret: Open Fret 2
Finger: 0 2
Notice that we use the same number finger as
the fret number. This is a very important
technique to develop on the guitar. Please ensure
that you use the correct finger.
There are some hints for learning the note names
on the guitar in Appendix 1 on page 57. Especially
if you have learnt some chords on the guitar
already.
