Entry in progress—B.P.
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).

A few of my favorite words

Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge (line notes right hand)
FACE (space notes right hand)
can’t rember the left ones though something like All Cows Eat Grass. i found it easier not to worry about what letter the note was biut just where it was on the keyboard. Right hand in the bass clef is murder on me though.
