We have in the treble clef, we have the letter names of the lines of the treble clef. And those are E, G, B, D, F or "Every Good Boy Does Fine." That seems to be a simple way of trying to remember those letters and the order that they go in. Now, if we want to go ahead now and take a look down here at the bottom, we have here some of those examples. If we pay attention to the notes that are just here in the middle, I can show you that, some of how they line up. In most of your beginning books, this book here will probably be a little different, but if you look at a beginning book, it will show you exactly where you need to go. If we start over here and we look, we see down here we've got a keyboard that shows us exactly what notes are on the keyboard. And, if we look above here, we've got these little red lines that go up to the notes here and it's showing us what those notes actually will look like on the page and how they line up. And, if you have one of these fingering charts or note charts, it'll show you exactly what you need to know to get started.
