Relationships Within the Grand Staff Ledger Lines
There are 3 things you need to take special note of:
1) The only note shared between the two staves is middle C.
You will not find any other note in common between the treble clef and bass clef.
2) Two Ledger lines above the treble clef staff and two ledger lines below the bass clef staff is also the note C.
Recognizing this right away will give you yet another place to start from working your way up or down the music alphabet and ledger lines in order to figure out the rest of the notes.
