    I found this great WIKIPEDIA article on the history and usage of the Musical Clefs. Here's an excerpt:

    A clef (French: clef; “key”) is a musical symbol used to indicate the pitch of written notes. Placed on one of the lines at the beginning of the stave, it indicates the name and pitch of the notes on that line. This line serves as a reference point by which the names of the notes on any other line or space of the stave may be determined. Only one clef that references a note in a space rather than on a line has ever been used.

    I thought about putting this in the Off Topic area, but decided we should send it to the front page.

    Brie, the daughter of TLD owners, David and Barb Crossman, has been taken to the hospital with what looks to be Spinal Meningitis. The confirmation of the diagnosis is still pending, but while we wait to hear, why don't we all take a moment to offer up all the good vibes and prayers for her safety, health, and for the well-being of the entire family.
