Like C1, C2, C3, etc. I've tried looking around google but all I can find it stuff about vocal ranges.

What really confuses me is that I've heard there is a -1 and -2 range such as C-2. What does that mean? Where do these ranges relate to in relationship to a piano?

Octaves occur when you play a note that's a certain number of Hertz (Hz) or "cycles" above another note. You can play E3 and then after 7 tones up you will play another E, E4.

It's the same note, just in a higher range.

Your lowest E string is TWO octaves below your highest E string. Fret 2 on your D string is ONE octave above your low E string.

those dashes after the C's are most likely typing errors. If you played anything lower than 0E (20.60hz), your ears wouldn't be able to comprehend the sound. No negatives.

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?
