Notes on strings

Guitar players out there will be aware that the same note can be found on different strings on the guitar. Lately I’ve really been noticing the difference in tone due to the different thickness of strings and of course wound or unwound,  so for example the C note on the 8th fret of the high E string and the same C-note found on the 13th fret of the B string or the g-note found on the 8th fret of the B string and the 12th fret of the g-string.

In a larger context this really does have a big impact on the sound and feel depending on whether one plays in position or going up and down one or two strings. These are kind of esoteric things mostly for guitar players but I just thought I’d put this up here.
