G String: Introduction

Lesson Menu

You’re now onto learning a crucial string of the guitar; the G string, also known as the “3rd string”. What makes the G string so useful is that it’s got a more “middle” pitch of the guitar, so it’s often used as a melodic strum, or for strict accompaniment, broadly speaking.

Also, the top 3 strings are known as the “treble” strings, while the bottom 3 are known as the “bass” strings, so this is now the final of the treble strings!
