I know this should have been in..erm..some other area of the boards but I would have forgotten about it! Anyway, I'm trying to remember how the strings of my guitar go(yeah, I'm new to it)i.e E A D G B E. So I thought I'd make one of those things like...
Envious
Ants
Dont
Go
Behind
Elephants.
...to help me remember them. But that's really crap. So has anyone got any better ideas of a...(sorry I can't remember the name, starts with A or something)thing where the strings stand for words?
Thanx :)
Oh also how long does it take for your chord fingers to stop hurting?! I heard a few weeks...

I'm so proud of my vintage guitar :) well, I call it a vintage guitar because it's about 30/40 years old! Not quite mint condish because it's got an injured scratch plate[don't know if that's the right termonology(sp?)] but anyway it's got blue tape over it and I might leave it because I think it looks very punkrock :D
