Is there a difference between the three top strings of a guitar and the three bottom strings?
Don't laugh: I found an old guitar in my house, and the strings were all rusty. I want to change them; but I know next to nothing about guitars. Is there a difference between the top 3 strings and the bottom 3 strings? I noticed that the bottom 3 are thicker... maybe treble/bass?
Each string, when plucked without fingers down on the neck, creates a different note. From highest pitch to lowest (right to left), the notes are high E, B, G, D, A, low E. When you go to a music store to pick up new strings, you are going to want one of each of these strings. You might want to ask the person in the store to help you tune each string to its correct pitch if you aren't familiar with the guitar and these notes.
You noticed that the top 3 strings and the bottom 3 are made of different material. The top three are made of what seems to be plastic, and the bottom 3 are wrapped in metal, right? Well, the top three are made of vinyl, and the bottom 3 are made of vinyl but wrapped in metal. This has to do with the pitch of the notes and also the sound quality, called the timbre (pronounced tamber).
