Open String Names
You’ll need to know the names of the open strings. Using a mnemonic can help you remember them. For example; Elephants And Donkeys Grow Big Ears to remember E A D G B E (thickest to thinnest!).
Another student favourite to remember the open string names is Eddie Ate Dynamite - Good Bye Eddie!
