Electric guitar strings

Electric guitar strings: Traditionally, the dominant hand has been assigned the task of pulling or playing strings.

The guitar strings are parallel to the neck and the strings are covered by the fingerboard. By pressing the strings against the fingerboard, the effective length of the strings can be changed, thereby changing the frequency of vibration when the strings are pulled up. The guitarist usually plays the strings with one hand and the other hand presses the strings against the fingerboard. 

In an electric guitar, a transducer called a pickup converts string vibration into an electrical signal, which is then amplified and fed to a speaker, which vibrates the air to produce the sound we hear.
