Close For people learning guitar who are not familiar with the musical theory, the fret board can be very intimidating. While it is easy to learn chords and regurgitate them, many beginner guitarists do not understand what exactly they are doing to form those chords. While this is a fine way to learn other people’s songs, this kind of incomplete knowledge makes it extremely difficult to get enough of a grounding in guitar theory to write original music. Read on for a basic overview of how exactly frets correspond to musical notes.

First, most beginner guitarists know that the strings of the guitar are named low E, A, D, G, B, and high E. Each string is named after the note it plays if it is plucked while no fret is held. The open strings span exactly two octaves. To find what note you are playing on the guitar, it is important to consider the note of the string you are playing, as each note is relative to that string.
