Okay, I’m glad that you know how to find “F” in the bass clef.
Now, we’re going to look at all the other bass clef notes.
Do you remember the music alphabet that we talked about a few lessons ago?
It’s time to use it again.
Up the Staff
When you move up the bass clef staff, you go through the music alphabet letter names in order.
Down the Staff
On the way down the staff, you go backwards through the alphabet.
Where Do I Start?
It doesn’t matter what pitch you start on. You will either go forward through the alphabet in order going up the staff or backwards through the letters moving down.
Remember, as you move up the staff the pitches will sound higher. When you move down through the staff, the pitches will sound lower.
This is one way to learn how to read all the bass clef notes. There’s an even easier way we will talk about in the next 2 lessons. Let’s go on over to Bass Clef Line Notes – Reading Music Lesson #14
