EADGBE - Standard

Description

Standard tuning has evolved to provide a good compromise between simple fingering for many chords and the ability to play common scales with minimal left hand movement. The separation of the first (e ) and second (b) string as well as the separation between the third (g) fourth (d) fifth (A) and sixth (E) strings by a five-semitone interval (a perfect fourth) allows notes of the chromatic scale to be played with each of the four fingers of the left hand controlling one of the first four frets (index finger on fret 1 little finger on fret 4 etc.). It also yields a symmetry and intelligibility to fingering patterns.
