As I understand it, the note that comes out of my open string is set by two factors: its length and its tension (I don't think the thickness is a factor but could be wrong).
Why is it, then when I press on the string to play loud the note does not get higher? Does the stretching of the string (making it longer) ballance the increased tension? Or is the tension all in my head!! :)
