    open string means that you don't have to do anything to the string with your left hand, you just pluck on any string.

    and closed means that you pinch the string at the given location!:)

    I'm just starting too, but I really enjoy it!

    have fun!:)

    open is where you don't play any frets.

    frets are the thing on the long part where the metal thing separates it.

    and if it's closed string you'll either be playing a tab (one finger on one string being played one at a time) chord (many fingers on many strings being played at the same time)
