Anatomy of the Guitar

A labor and employment attorney with Eckert Seamans, Jonathan Nadler of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, enjoys playing guitar in his free time. Jon Nadler plays and enjoys a variety of music styles, including both rock and jazz.

Before learning to play the guitar, a musician must first know how the frets and strings relate to musical notes. To begin, each string on a guitar plays an individual note. The lowest and highest strings, for example, play an E when struck alone. For a guitarist to play a different note, he or she must depress the string at a certain point. This is when the guitarist must pay attention to the frets.

If a guitarist depresses the E string in the space between the first two fret wires, for example, and then strikes the string over the hole in the guitar, he or she will hear an F note. This occurs because each fret, when pressed, causes the string to sound a half step higher. If the musician releases the first fret and plays the lowest string on the second fret, the string will then sound as an F sharp. The same pattern occurs as the musician plays up the string, thus allowing him or her to play any note on the musical scale simply by changing the placement of his or her fingers.
