Step 4: Strings
Look at the thickest string on your guitar. That one's called the low E string. The one below it, slightly thinner, is the A string. The next, is the D string, and the next is the G string. The Next is the B string, and the last , the highest string, is the e string.
It's important to know the order of the strings. I use an acronym to remember.
