Thanks, Gill, that was interesting! I like the cute British names for the notes. In German they are just as “mathematical” as the American terms.

I liked your video so much. I’m a musician and there’s no much material about music vocabulary.
May you make other videos about instrument vocabulary?
For Example: Flute parts (lip plate, head-joint, etc.), Articulations, embouchure, etc.

Thank you! I am researching the sound of ocean waves and found a possible relation to music. When explaining it to some colleagues I wanted to show a random data example and it just happened to correspond to a flat note. Now I could have said A, B, C, etc. fine, but had no clue how to express this one. It was so embarrassing, because I knew exactly what it was, but could not get the information across. I wish I had watched this video earlier. Also the differences between British and American can be confusing. After watching this I realise that some things could easily be misunderstood by different nationality groups in an audience. For example, I have often seen references online calling A, B, C, etc. notes and the flats and sharps half notes. An American listener would be interpreting those completely different.
