5th Fret

Does anyone here know that playing the 5th fret on each string apart from g string(when its the fourth fret) is exactly the same as playing the next string up?
Only becasue lots of tabs are written like this:

E----------
B----------
G----------
D-----7---
A-------5--
E

and it should be written like
E---------
B----------
G-----2---
D-------0--
A----------
E

Learn your notes.

EDIT: OMG! Did you know that once you pass the 12th fret, the neck repeats itself?!

Yea... That's how you tune by ear.

Have you found out Santa Claus isn't real yet?

Yes, most people are up to date with this highly new theory.

I find doing a harmonic on the 5th fret and a harmonic on the 7th fret on the next string is easier. You can hear the sound vibrations much easier.

Playing 5-7-7-6-x-x sounds heavier than x-0-2-2-2-x

The bottom 3 strings give more bass to the tone.

So instead of going from the 14th fret on the high E to the 12th fret on the high B, you should go from the 14th fret to the 7th fret on the high E?

I smell a troll, but you're rather stupid in any case.
