Stanron Chord Diagrams Exclude Bass E string? (23) RE: Chord Diagrams Exclude Bass E string? 26 Oct 18

It depends on what kind of guitar playing you want to do. If you are fingerpicking your chords can be quite precise and bass notes that work in one bar may need to be different in another.

When strumming what used to be called 'Rhythm Guitar' in a band, the bass notes are the province of the bass guitar and not all that critical for the guitarist.

If you are playing solo guitar with a pick and doing 'Dum Chick', ie bass note then chord, then again selecting specific bass notes makes sense.

It all depends.
