Hi Bob

Just had a very quick random run through a couple of videos.

Not a criticism, more a nod at how perspective is different for everyone.

The lesson on Open C tuning, you refer to the bottom E string as the top string - yet having played since 1967, I always view that as the bottom string. Marvellous how things are seen by other guitarists.

This discrepency seems to crop up quite often in discussions between Americans and us normal folk (UK).

I call them 'the fat E' and 'the skinny E' clears up any confusion.

Hello Bob, welcome to the board! Not looked at the site yet but I'm on my way as I'm trying, with little success, to learn the dark art of 6-stringing.

Agreed, out in the colonies things are different, however I believe Mr Crispy is Canadian (the place where Stargate is filmed).

I know Canada, they have the Rockies including Whistler, you can ride there. Excellent. 8)

When I play six-string, the guitar is flipped over because my guitar chums were all righties and I just got used to it. So the bottom E (pitchwise) is also the bottom E on the fretboard. Play upside-down, solves arguments :lol:

And some of us refer to them as High E and Low E.

But is that physically or pitch-wise? :lol:

Of course some of us have been known to play lying on the floor, which also solves the problem.

Things would be so much easier if we all played a 7 string..

Cool site!
