    What do the X and O at the top of the string mean?

    "X" means the strings you don't pluck (also called "Closed") and "O" means the strings that you do pluck (Also called "Open")

    x's are muted strings (either press a finger against them softly so they make no sound when strummed, or don't strum them at all), and the o's are open strings where there is no fret depressed but the string is still strummed.

    Thanks. I figured the O for open but didn't know the X was muted. When it said 'play all strings' and had an X, I just wondered what the X meant.

    These charts are certainly useful, but this instructable could use a lot more "instructions". Notice the low rating, when most instructables seem to have 4 or better. I think everyone would appreciate an explanation, suggested fingering, maybe some actual pictures.
