Asked by Morga Thomson on 1999-11-03
First of all, thank you for having this sight. It seems to be very well thought out and useful. My question is on reading a chord chart. The strings are numbered 6-1. Is the 6 stings the uppermost string when you are holding the guitar or is it the 1 string?
Answer posted by Preston Thomason on 1999-11-07
Yes, 6 is the uppermost string.Here is a "G" chord 1 3 2 3 4 5 2 6 3 - This is your low e, or uppermost string. If you have any more questions e-mail me at portonp@hotmail.com. I'm not the most knoweldgeable person, but i can probably help you out

The "G" chord didn't turn out the way i had hoped. I wanted it to be a vertical illustration, rather than horizontal.

the thinnest string, the HIGH E, is the considered the first string...the THICKEST string, the low E, is considered the sixth string

What sting do you need to know. I have magic carpet and can fly there. I wear dirty night shirt and have fleas of a thousand camels in my dirty beard. I can help. I play sitar, skin flute, bongos, with myself,with my sister and mom, eat camel dung and spit on the floor alot. Please ask me more questions. Please come eat with me, thank you very much.
