Converting Notation to Guitar Tab in the First Position
With the way the guitar is tuned you can play most notes in the 1st 4 frets. The notes that are higher on the neck are often just different places to play those same notes. So when you are looking to convert notation to tab. That’s a good place to start.
Here are all of the natural and sharp notes in the first position from the lowest sound the highest. The first position is the first 4 frets of the guitar along with the open strings. I have also included the 5th fret on the 1st string.
Natural and Sharp Notes in the 1st Position of the Guitar
Here are all of the natural notes and flats from highest to the lowest in the first position. The notes that fall in-between the natural notes can have 2 different names depending on the situation. The 2nd fret on the first string could be called an F sharp (), which is 1 fret higher than the F. It could also be called a G flat (), which is one fret lower than a G.
