I'm not confused in any way about low to high being 6 to 1. I'm already use to it.

But I think it is not a good idea to have EADGBe= 654321. Because from low E to High E, the pitch goes up. Well why not have the numbers go up? like 123456.

Or please explain why EADGBe = 654321. Don't get mad please...

Because it just is.

Why do you want to do it differently to everyone else...what's that going to achive other than confusing you?

It was just a question...As I said, I'm already use to the real way so I'm not as interested in another...

I can actually understand your argument in some sense..When referring to piano octaves it goes from low to high (ex. C1-C5) but who knows why some things are the way they are.

It's just logical that the numbers be placed that way. There are many advantages to it

Everyone hold the guitar neck the same way. Your hand wrap around the neck coming up from below. The first string you touch will be the high E, next will be B, then G, D, A and the last will be low E (if you have it in Standard E). This also make tabs easier to interpret. Take a picture of your guitar neck and turn the nut side to the left and you'll see.

A cool fact is that if you add a string or two to the guitar (7/8 strings) or remove strings (say, bass 4/5 strings). The string numbering will still remain the same to the number. hight E still the 1st, B still 2nd etc... It's just much more simple this way.

Just the way things are. Why do Americans drive on the right side of the street? Why are there 12 inches in a foot?Why not 10? or 14? Someone just decided, "this is how shits gonna be from now on"

You could just read music.


Exactly what difference would that make?! Most tabs are labelled EADGBe!
