Today, a beginner who started with me about a month ago was learning some new low notes...
ME: So if you take the F that you're fingering now and add one more finger, you have...?
KID: An E! just like on recorder!
ME: That's right! And what would you get if you added one more finger?
KID: An H?
ME: No, there's no such note as H. But look what we've been doing: We
started with a G, and then we keep going one letter earlier in the
alphabet. So what comes before E in the alphabet?
KID: I got it...it's an I.
