Reading the Musical Staff ___
As one, that is not trained in music, I never learned how to read music from a ‘Staff - Sheet.
And, as I think in intervals, rather than notes… I came up with this alternative.
( not recommended for all / although any may use, if they feel it’s useful ).
"Corrections, or negative comments are welcome" !
In the Major Scale, of ‘C’
Middle ‘C’ is located by itself, just below the staff.
The first line up is E, a Major 3rd
the second line is G, a 5th
The third line up is B, ( if flatted it is the Bb or b-7 ),
The forth line up, D, is the 9th
The 5th ‘note’ with a line thru it is, F, the, 11th.
( the 9th and 11th, may be flatted or sharped )
The ‘Staff Spaces, from the bottom up, are as follows…
1st Space between ‘Middle C’ and the Major 3rd, is ‘D, a Major Second.
The first Space within the Staff, is F, a forth
The Second Space is ‘A, the 6th, ( the Relative minor ).
The Third Space is C, the 'Octave.
The Forth Space is E, the Major 3rd.
