G clef

A symbol located at the beginning of a staff to indicate the pitches of the notes placed on the lines and spaces of the staff. The G clef is so named because the symbol is a stylized letter "G" that encircles the line of the staff, indicating where the "g" above middle C (g1) is located. The two G clefs still recognized today are the treble clef (with the second line of the staff being g1) and the rarely used french Liquid error: undefined method `title' for nil:NilClass (with the first line of the staff being g1).
