What note is the note under FNG: 4? It’s A flat, how do you play A flat on the A string? enter image description here

    I'm guessing the 4 above the note is a fingering? Then you'd play it on the 4th fret of the E string.

  • @ggcg yes it’s fingering.

  • Then I think you have the answer. You play it on the E string

  • @ggcg Actually, it’s the 3rd fret (4th finger), an A flat on the A string. So do you just move down that fret to the E?

    I'm curious: why did you think that the A string was specified?

Quite simply, you don't. You can't. That A string is note A open, and you can't go to a lower note using that string. The fingering says 4, which is a good clue to playing the bottom string (E), with 4th finger, on 4th fret. That takes you down a semitone from A, to A♭. Job done!
