Would someone please explain the notations E2, F3, etc. which are used in answers on this site regarding trombone? I'm not familiar with those.


It's Scientific Pitch Notation that is used to notate the note itself and the octave it is in.

For example E2 tells you that it is specifically the E on the first ledger line under the bass clef.
