Oh dang! I guess I'm gonna fail!
I know I would fail.
Hey, but in all seriousness folks, thanks. I now have to practice to be able to hit those notes. Here I thought I was cool with my (let's see if I got my lingo down) "high G" (octave above the g on top of the staff). I think I got that right.
These are all the easy notes.....just fingered open.....
Speaking of fingerings... that'd be an interesting topic.... For instance, I play DHC with 1st valve while I know others who use open, 2/3, etc... I wonder if certain brands have certain fingerings that slot better than others... hmmm... Hopefully that made sense. Take care.
And about teh exam... is there a Clep test I could take? lol
George Graham fingered notes from double Aflat on up one half step higher. Aflat was 1 and 2. Double A was first valve.
He also played them quite loud.
Or any way the contractor wanted them!
Middle school lead players call C above the staff 'double C' and all that is above it gets 'double'.
High school lead players call G above that C 'double G', and all that is above it gets 'double'.
College lead players argue about the terminology.
And professionals (at least the ones i've talked to) start using the word 'double' with the C over an octave above the staff.
Just what i've heard, but who knows, i'm in high school and don't know a whole lot. all in good fun
This is the model I have to agree with.
OK, another way to say what Manny said -
Take a piano and find middle C. The C above that is "high" C and the C two leger lines above the staff is "double" C. The C above that is, what? Oh my....it's the Triple C. This makes a little more sense. Every C middle C and above is now named.
So think about this...
Take again the piano and find middle C. It's the C between the bass and treble cleffs. Question, if the C two leger lines above the staff is high C, then what is the treble staff third space C called? Huh? I would think if the other C's had names this C would too instead of just "C".
Ok, so an octave above :c6: is "double"?
Oh goodness I hope so. This thread is confusing to read.
No, that would be high C. One octave above that is Double C.
Everthing above that is double up to Triple C
