The second most common clef. The bass clef uses both the head (that bulbous part) and those two dots to indicate which line it names. The bass clef was also once a letter. Which one do you think it was? We’ll go over the details in Chapter 9. The only thing to remember at the moment is that both the head of the bass clef and the dots indicate
the fourth line.

The Bass Clef. The bass clef indicates the fourth line.

Bass clef is used for instruments with a low sound. Some of them are: tuba, cello, double bass, trombone, bassoon, electric bass, and piano.
Because of their large range between high and low, keyboard instruments like piano, organ, and synthesizer use both the treble and bass clefs.
