How do I read chord fingerings?

Before you start learning to play the guitar, you need to remember the string numbering. Many novice guitarists think that the first string is the one on top. In fact, the first string is the thinnest, it is located at the bottom. The top string, the thickest, is number 6.

Next, you need to learn the numbering of the fingers of your left hand. Usually, in notes or tablatures, it is indicated with which finger you need to hold a particular string. In the left hand, the numbering of the fingers begins with the index, it is indicated by the number 1. Therefore, the middle finger corresponds to the number 2, the ring finger — 3, and the little finger-4.

Then you need to learn the fret numbering. Frets are metal cross inserts and parts of the neck between them, where the strings are pressed when setting chords and playing individual notes and solo parts. The fret numbering starts from the head of the fretboard. From top to bottom are frets numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, and so on.

In the next lesson, you will learn basic guitar chords and how to play them!
