These notes look so...MUSICAL!

This post is primarily for people that read music and cringe every time they see music-y symbols. But it's also for folks that see this junk and don't know the difference.

I just did a Google image search for "music notes." Let's start here:

Hot! Looks like trumpets to me!

Stirring! This example, more than any of the following, seems to actually follow some sort of protocol (the flat in the signature and the C sharp suggest D minor), and is maybe even taken from something. It sounds better with some low brass: 

Speaking of low brass:

Wait a minute...isn't that the Cheers theme song?

And my favorite is the one I used as a header. I think an orchestra hit with lots of reverb will do.

So stark! And mysterious! No time, no barlines, and that free-floating B, not tethered to the rest of that diminished arpeggio. Rogue! Do you think that Charles Street knows what this sounds like? (Click his name. Not sure why I can't get that to display properly.)

"Life is like the music notes of a song. There are three key notes; Family, Health and Finances. Just like music, these three will go up and down at different times.”

So true, man. So true. Family can be a real B. And F finances. But life is still simpler than "Mary Had a Little Lamb."


  1. The last one sounds like it should be stuck right before a match-up on something shitty like Battle Bots. "Blue team, ready?! Red team, are you fuckin' READY?! LETS DO THIS!! AHHH GET SOME!!!!!1"

  2. In the music notes denote a relative duration as well pitch of sounds. You highlighted the difference in this post. Some best dissertation writing service writing on this topic for the students who are getting the music education.
