    Exactly as @Bob said. To the left of a staff is where the staff's instrument is specified, and the instrument names are usually abbreviated. – user16935 Jan 24 '15 at 20:01

  • Fair enough, @Bob. I was wondering why you hadn't. :D – user16935 Jan 24 '15 at 20:53
  • Also sometimes abbreviated El-G – Rockin Cowboy Jan 25 '15 at 13:46
