Guitar notes for beginners.

Notes of a guitar in traditional music theory are represented by the first seven letters of the Latin alphabet; A, B, C, D, E, F, and G.

However these aren’t the only notes in music, there are also sharp and flats, and they fall between these main notes. The sharp is pitched one note above the main note,making it sharper. Where as the flat notes are literally flattened a semi-tone below a main note; hence it is flat. Confusing but flats and sharps are actually the same note.The symbol for sharp is # and the symbol for flat is b .

The key of G is one of the most widely used keys in classical & popular music.This is because a lot of the chords in the key are easy to play on many instruments.

The key of G consists of the following notes: G, A, B, C, D, E, & F#.

The open chords we can play from the key of G are: G, Am, C, D, Em.

Each finger is represented by the number 1 to 4.  An x means that you do not play that string when strumming the chord.

Take the note between G and A. This note can be called either G# or Ab.

There are 2 places in the musical alphabet where there are no sharps or flats — between E and F,and between B and C.

Also pay close attention to the string names,from the thickest most string to the thinnest the names are E A D G B E.An easy way to remember them is with the phrase Every August Dogs Go Biting Elvis.
