There are two representations
i. Vertical View
ii. Horizontal View.
In this course we will be following the horizontal view only.
In the above picture we can see the horizontal view. Here the guitar is drawn upside down. It’s simple to visualize, just hold the guitar as if you are playing and then lay it down on your lap and put a copy on the strings and draw the string on the page. Now you see the 6th string is at the bottom of the page and the 1st string is at the top, giving it an upside down look.
