Why Learn String Notes?

It’s a good idea to learn the notes that your guitar strings are tuned to early on in your playing career.

Even if you’re a solo guitarist who doesn’t play with other musicians, you’ll need to know the string notes for tuning with a guitar tuner. Even if you tune by ear, you’ll still need to know the notes of the strings when you start learning chords and melodies.

If you plan to play with other musicians, you’ll need to know the string notes for tuning to other instruments. Further down this page you’ll find a diagram of the guitar string notes on a music stave, and also on a piano keyboard.
