#beginquote# Thanks in advance for any help. Why is the middle of the staff "C" not "A"? Is there a historical reason? The alphabet starts on "A" why not have the musical staff reflect that i.e. C should be named A). I understand that in early notation C and F were notated with different colored lines and that probably has something to do with the half steps below each of them (or the avoidance of the tri-tone), but why not call those two notes "A" and "D"? #endquote#
