While playing a particular piece (not chords, fingerpicking/single note playing) on my ukulele (or as far as the question is concerned, any similar instrument), I use the standard notation and then play the different notes by engendering the required notes by appropriately fretting different strings.
My question is, is there any difference between the same note played on different strings? Or choosing where to play the note is purely a matter of convenience?
Logically, since the sizes and tensions of the strings vary, there might be some difference even with the same fundamental frequency, maybe in the harmonic spread. If it is so, on what basis do we choose the strings while doing the aforementioned exercise?
I am not certain of the tags to be used. Please add if necessary. Thanks :)
