    This seems to be very confusing to many players. Obviously our music education is being ignored!

    Just to keep the unknowing from posting something wrong:

    Low C is below the staff.
    Third space C is just that.
    High C is two ledger lines above the staff.
    Double C is one octave above that.

    Octaves start with C. This means that Double G is higher than Double C.

    For the sake of confusion: our double C is merely a high Bb for a flute.

    There is very LITTLE musical content written for unamplified Double C.
