The Thick "E" String


The final string to talk about is the thick "E" string, which is the 6th-string of the guitar. It's most-often used as a supportive bass note, grounding out a chord, or accompanying a melody. It's the exact same note as the thin "E" string, but a lower-pitched, lower-octave version of it instead! Therefore, the 3-notes are the same as for the thin "E" string, but they'll have a bit more growl.
