The bass staff represents notes of low pitch and so instruments such as the bass guitar, trombone, tuba, double bass play notes that are written on this staff. Like the treble staff, each line and space of the bass staff is represented by a specific letter from the musical alphabet (A, B, C, D, E, F & G).
The lines and spaces are placed in sequence and so this makes it easy for individuals to remember the letter names of each line and space. The diagram below should give you a better understanding:
The diagram above is telling us that the letter names of the lines are G, B, D, F & A and the letter names of the spaces are A, C, E & G.
The diagram below shows the letters of the bass staff in sequence of line, space, line, space etc.
I hope you have learnt something from this lesson. Have a good day.
