Entry in progress—B.P.
Another GBDFA mnemonic is “Good Boys Do Fine Always.” An ACEG mnemonic is “All Cows Eat Grass.”
EGBDF mnemonics include “Every Good Boy Deserve Favor/Favour,” “Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge,” “Every Good Boy Does Fine,” “Every Girl Bakes Delicious Fudge,” “Every Good Burger Deserves Fries,” “Elephants Got Big Dirty Feet,” “Empty Garbage Before Dad Flips” and “Elvis’ Guitar Broke Down Friday.”
When the F-clef is placed on the fourth line, it is called the bass (/ˈbeɪs/ bayss) clef. This is the only F-clef used today so that the terms “F-clef” and “bass clef” are often regarded as synonymous.
This clef is used for the cello, euphonium, double bass, bass guitar, bassoon, contrabassoon, trombone, baritone horn, tuba, and timpani. It is also used for the lowest notes of the horn, and for the baritone and bass voices. Tenor voice is notated in bass clef when the tenor and bass are written on the same stave. Bass clef is the bottom clef in the grand stave for harp and keyboard instruments. The contrabassoon, double bass, and electric bass sound an octave lower than the written pitch; no notation is usually made of this fact, but some composers/publishers will place an “8” beneath the clef for these instruments on the conductor’s full score to differentiate from instruments that naturally sound within the clef (see “Octave clefs” below).
Lines of the Bass Clef: “Good Burritos Don’t Fall Apart.” Ingenious.
