Your Open String Note Mnemonics

Making up your own mnemonics for the Open String Note Names is a good idea. I always encourage students to make up their own, as well as using mine, as it will help you remember them quickly.

Try to make up a fun back story to help you remember yours (if you're using mnemonics to remember anything else, try to make the topics very different so you don’t get them confused!).

Here's a few to get you going. Post yours in the comments below and I'll add the super cool ones to the lesson! :)

Write out at least one of your own, you might need it in a test later ;)
