In written music and preceding the key signature there is always a symbol, it is named the clef and it indicates the pitch of the notes written on the stave. There are quite a few different ones which include the G-clef, C-clef, F-clef, as well as variations of these. I am intrigued by their appearances and wish to learn more about when they had originated and about their significances during musical reference.

  • this only mentions the Treble Alto-Tenor Clef symbols, further it does not delve into the historical

    Welcome to SE Music :) You didn't actually formulate a specific question we can answer to. As it's currently written it does not fit the format of the site and risks being closed. Have you read music.stackexchange.com/tour ?

    The G and F clefs are just the letters G and F in a stylised form. Their origin is the alphabet.
