Difference between Norwegian and English/Amerikan guitar.
« on: October 02, 2010, 07:26:22 pm »
I have learnt that the difference between English and Norwegian guitar are not many.

The open B string in Englihs is called H in Norwegian.

The saying i use for remembering the open chords is;
En - Annen - Dag - Gikk - Hun/Han - Ensom.
One - Other - Day - Went - She/He - Lonely.

I'll come with more information about differences between English and Norwegian guitar (although i don't expect it to be much more, but wait). I would like it if other members will contribute with making this post longer.

I remember learning this one at the age of 10:

"En Annen Dame Gikk Han etter" which basically means He's stalking another Lady.

There are 13 tones.
They are denoted as [regular spelling] and in Norwegian called [between paranthesis]:

C, C# (siss), D, D# (diss), E, F, F# (fiss), G, G# (giss), A, A# (aiss), H ... and back to C.

The rhyme I learned a long time ago in Swedish is... let's see

En Ball Groda Dansar Aldrig Ensam

Which means something like

A Groovy Frog Never Dances Alone


Which is pretty groovy I think... Didn't mean to hijack, but Swedish and Norwegian are pretty darn close.  ;)

Absolutt.
Thampen.
Nice to see you here with the Norwegians.
I'll make sure to take a look on Swedish.
As for differences, i don't think there are many? (notice questionmark)

I meet my "teacher" every week like once, estimated.
If there are advanced quetions (about Nor vs. Eng), ask them here then I'll post the answers up.
He tells me he has studied five years in school, and is able to play like five string instruments.
Expectedly solid.

Peace
