I’m Danish, and when I was 8 years old my dad taught me this one to remember the string names:

Egon Har Gigt Den Arme Egon

… which will make zero sense to 99.5% of the members of this forum. But it worked for me, still remember it to this day…

Guess that 0.5% is you and Jesper, although you could include Brian if you were feeling kind :rofl:

Are the templates reversed???

@Karende I’m not sure what you are asking - which templates / reversed how?
Cheers :smiley:

Oops. Good spot Karen they do seem to be incorrectly labelled. Top one is Thick to Thin, bottom is Thin to Thick. Would also be better if the first string was noted a “e” and not E as is common from string naming.

@Richard_close2u can you do the needful on this one ? Assume it will need a website change?

Thank you all!

@Karende All fixed. Thanks for the alert.
