Watch the Whole Notes on E online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Learn Bass 1: First Steps for Beginners

The first thing we need to do is to learn how to play our open E string. We'll be plucking the E string, playing what's called a whole note, which has four beats in it. We'll start slowly in Practice Session 1, and then go faster in Practice Session 2. Focus on getting a good sound out of the E string.
