The OO states uncover a consistency that helps learn what 8 natural notes are produced at 12 fret-based coordinates.

Let’s use a notation specifying string-fret, then note.

Example: “1-7B.”

In the example, the initial digit (‘1’) designates string 1. The next digit (‘7’) designates fret 7. The letter (‘B’) designates the note produced — note B. Thus, the symbol “1-7B” says “string 1 at fret 7 is a B.”

OOF state occurs as follows:1-0E, 1-7B, 2-8G, 3-7D, 4-7A, 5-7E, 6-0E.
OOP state occurs as follows: 6-0E, 6-5A, 5-5D, 4-5G, 3-4B, 2-5E, 1-0E.

And there you have it. It’s time to cross some eyes and dot some tees — coming next.
