Special thanks to Keith Wyatt for making that little ditty stick in my head forever.

Made this one up in my first week or two:

I just memorized EADGBE, otherwise I would be saying Easter Bunny Gets Drunk At Easter for the rest of my life. :? :lol:Hee, hee. Good one. :lol:
Well, maybe with some of these, I won't be stuck saying "Elephants And Dinosaurs Go to Bed Early" for the rest of my life. (I thought fersure that one would've been in here long before this.)
Funny how we count them 1-6 in one direction, and "name" them in the other direction, except as in any like Sport's.
And no, I didn't need to figure out that there was no "'t' string." :P

I've just memorised EADGBe but I have used this on in the past.

8)

I've had a lot of sobering thoughts in my time.
It was them that turned me to drink.

I use a Dutch phrase:

Een Aap Die Geen Bananen Eet

Which means: A Monkey That Doesn't Eat Bananas

Like some others I just ..remember it. I have always found that trying to be clever only gets me in trouble, and I never remember the clever phrase I came up with.

Ok then peeps - I've learned the 5th fret as well as open, as a first stepping stone to knowing every note without counting. Anyone got any for that, or any other, or can we make some up?

I have for the 5th - "And Down God Came, Exasperating Athiests"

I'm still trying to think of another, but they've got to incorporate the word 'sharp' or 'flat' at least once too :roll: (preferrably 'sharp' to avoid confusion...)
