B String: Introduction

Lesson Menu

Great, you’ve now moved forward to learning the 2nd string (also called the “B String”) of the guitar! Similar to the 1st string, the 2nd string’s higher pitch means it's often used for melodies and guitar solos.

As a note, since your fretting hand will now be reaching over the 1st string in order to fret the 2nd string, it’ll become more important to use your fingertips rather than fingertips.
