Going from the lowest pitch string up, written out for the non-musical folk:<br><br> 1. 2. 3. 4. <br>E: f. f#. g. g#<br>A: a# b. C. c#<br>D: d# E. f. f#<br>G: g# a. a#. b<br>B: C. c# d. d#<br>E: f. f#. g#. a<br><br>Play the capitalized letters just as the O.P. says, and you get a C major chord. From low to high: E-C-E-G-C-E.
Awesome! You should do some more.
that's not how you play it. it's first fret second string, third fret fourth string and fourth fret fifth string.
<p>Well, it's correct (omitted E - that's nonsense) C e g c' e' So you can play all strings.</p><p>To play at last some basic melody you need the dominant chord too, which is G maj: highest (e') and lowest (E) string pressed down at 3rd fret and all strings strummed (G A d g b g').</p>
<p>I know I can play the E, but personally, I do not like the sound of the chord with the E being played. Thank you for the clarification of whether you can play the string.</p>
<p>Nice, thank you!</p>
