The standard tuning works best with light to extra light gauge guitar strings. Most students of the guitar will start out with the staple guitar chords like E, A, D and G. These chords provide a foundation for nearly all of popular music heard on the radio. Chances are, you'll learn a favorite song in standard tuning.

Light strings are perfect for standard, but many beginners will find the strings too hard to push down. For this reason, there is also extra light gauge strings to lighten the burden. In some cases, guitarists will start with classical or electric, to get their finger strength built up over time before switching to standard guitar tuning.
