Guitar Glossary
Vibrations or cycles per second, abbreviated 'Hz', a measurement of the frequency of a vibrating object. If you play the open A string on a concert-tuned guitar, the string's tone is at 110Hz, which is 110 vibrations per second. The human range of frequency perception, on average, is roughly 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz.
