[Solved] Notes above the Staff.

Hi, My name is Gil Ramos and  I'm a comeback player. So a lot of stuff i'm encountering on this wonderful journey back to playing is still new to me. 

Amongst other excersizes, I've been working on range. I've gotten upto a decent F above the scale. However I don't know if it's a double or Triple F. Can someone either describe it to me or somehow illustrate a Triple high F. 

I have 3 ledger lines below the note. 

I hope someone in this group can help me with this. I practice in my bedroom and there is no one near me that I can pose this question to. I like to gauge my progress. 

Thank you in advance everyone!

Gil

Hi Gil,

 

That is high F. Double F would be F above double C, which is an octave above the C above the staff. 

You can also find high F written in the fingering chart for Premium members, which is under the "More Resources menu" in the lesson menu 🙂

Hello, sorry I don't see anywhere to click ''ask a question''' so I am asking the question here under comment. I play piano/keyboard for hobby - Intermeddiate + level. Middle C is often referred to with the scientific notation system as C4. To make it easy for me, what is high F and double F and high C and double C using scientific notation. Saying that ''double F is the F above double C'' doesn't help if I don't know what double C is being new to the trumpet/brass world/way of thinking. Thanks.

Hi Steven, you are exactly right to comment here since your question is on this thread topic. For more tips on using the forum check out this thread: https://www.trumpetheadquarters.com/community/getting-started/forum-basics/

ON the Bb trumpet C below the staff is C4 (sounds Bb3 on piano) and is known as low C.
C in the third space is C5 (sounds Bb4 on piano), and is known as middle C.
C above the staff is C6 (sounds Bb5 on piano), and is known as High C.
C an octave above high C is C7 (sounds Bb6 on piano), is known as Double C...it is also incredibly high and most normal humans don't play in that register.

Hope that helps!
