This would work better, actually
Scientific pitch notation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
F and G above the staff are not High F and high G. Just F above the staff and G above the staff. The next up are high. IMHO.
To others in this thread: talk about a Universal Note-Naming Convention all you want, but we live in a world where every group of like instrumentalists probably has a naming convention specific to their instrument.

Hope this hasn't vectored the thread back to square one.
I feel for my brothers and sisters who grew up in the brass band (treble clef) world who now have to transpose. There's something wonderful about a piece of printed music going from a dot on the page to a musical noise without any calculation. All of your mental energy can then be used on intonation, tone, balance etc. I guess that players of transposing instruments have automated the added step but my tiny mind hasn't internalised the process. Playing trom in a concert band does my head in!

Here is THE rule that gets me confused every day on the trumpet: i before e except after c. My only problem is I am having one heck of a time finding that i note.
By the way, if anyone would like to send me a basic "c-note", PM me for my bank address, and I will arrange for a direct deposit into my account.
