F clef

[English]
Also known as the bass clef, the F clef is used to indicate pitches below middle C. The pitch "f" is indicated by placing a note on the 4th line. Originally the clef designation of "F" came about through the use of the letter "F" at the end of the staff to indicate the position of the pitch "f". The modern bass clef sign is, in fact, a fancy letter F with two dots that are on either side of the staff line where the pitch of F is located. The rarely used baritone clef places the note "F" on the third line of the staff.
