Hi, I'm Chay Alexander Wright, guitarist in LA, California, currently with Corbin Bleu. Today, we're going to talk step-by-step guitar notes. First, we're going to deal with the open strings on the instrument. There's six strings on here. First string, high string E, at the bottom of the instrument and the next string up is the second string B, then the next string is the third string G, next string up is the fourth string D, next string up from that is the fifth string A and the final string up from that is the sixth string, E. And with the frets from each note, we're going to start actually the bottom of the instrument or the top of the instrument, sixth string, E and you have frets, segments of the neck board or the finger board that each produce a note. So E, natural E, then F, then F Sharp, then G, G Sharp, sixth string, A, then A Sharp, B, C, C Sharp, D, D Sharp, and E. So the twelfth fret, E is an octave higher than open E there, and the same thing, let's go to the fifth string A. The first fret is going to be A Sharp, then B, then C, then C Sharp, then D, then D Sharp, then E, F, F Sharp, then G, G Sharp, and an octave up from open A, twelfth fret A. Then the next string which is going to be string four is open D, remember that note first fret is going to be D Sharp, then E, then F, F Sharp, G, G Sharp, A, A Sharp, B, C, C Sharp. Twelfth fret up, an octave D. Then the next string, third string G, open first fret is going to be G Sharp then A, A Sharp, then B, then C, then C Sharp, then D, D Sharp, E, F, F Sharp, then an octave up, G. Then next string is going to be B, open B second string, first note on this fret, C, C Sharp, then D, D Sharp, E, F, F Sharp, G, G Sharp, A, A Sharp and then B, an octave up and then finally the first string, high E, open high E is going to be the same thing as the sixth string on the bottom, low open E. So we have E, opened, first note F, F Sharp, G, G Sharp, A, A Sharp, B, C, C Sharp, D, D Sharp, and then octave up, E. So, if you refer to the piano you'll also notice that you know, the black keys in the keyboard are your sharps. Those will be your sharps in reference to where they are on the guitar. So C, there's no sharp, there's no B Sharp. It's just B to C and then E, there's no E Sharp, it's E to F, remember those. So, no E Sharp. It goes E to F natural and then no B Sharp, was B to C Natural. I'm Chay Alexander Wright, and that's step-by-step guitar notes.
