So how did you guys (the ones that play guitar ) learn the order of the string' notes?

Standard tuning, obviousy.

For me, at the beginning, it was Every Amped Detuned Guitar Blasts evil.

At the beginning I did it like that, and obviously after a whie learnt the names off by heart.

You guys? Did you have a litte sentence like that to help? Was it a different one? or did you just learn them?

I just remembered the 6 letters. It's 6 letters... I honestly don't understand why people ever bother with those mnemonic devices.

I don't think I've ever used them for anything.

It was incredibly frustrating in elementary school, where one of my teachers was convinced that we had to learn the mnemonic devices, regardless of whether we actually needed them. It got to a point where I pretended not to know things I already knew just to piss my teacher off.

Hmm I learned it in Portuguese and we call notes Do Re Mi etc instead of letters, and "Mi La Re Sol Si Mi" is catchier than a bunch of letters, I guess, because I've never heard of any mnemonics for tunings in Portuguese.

I remembered them as green, red, light brown, purple, yellow and green.

Synesthesia baby.


And I memorized six letters. Because it's six letters.


do you associate colors with letters? if so, take green, red, light brown, purple, yellow, and green, change it to g, r, b, p, y, g, then get a new list of six colors, then repeat

now that's dynamics

I just like...did. It's only 6 letters.

Speaking of mnemonics though, I do remember in my GCSE Music exam (when I was 15/16 for you yanks) we had to talk about Texture, Melody, Form, Structure, Instrumentation, Rhythm, Harmony and Dynamics, so for that I made up That Mother ****ing Shit Is Raping Her Dad. And I've never forgotten it.

I never really actively tried to learn them. I knew how to tune using the 5th (and 4th) fret, so I just remembered to start at E, would get the next string close to correct by ear, and use the tuner to get it just right. I very shortly had them memorized by seeing them on the tuner all the time in that process.
