Leger Lines
Leger lines are small lines used to extend the
staff for notes with pitch that is higher or
lower than those notes inside the staff.
To learn these new notes which are placed on
or between the leger lines you can still use the
same memory joggers you used within the
staff. There is one small adjustment to be
made though.
The joggers swap roles either side of the
staff. To name the notes on lines use the
memory jogger

(EGBDF) inside the staff, but either side of
the staff use the memory jogger FACE. To
name the notes in spaces use the memory
jogger Face inside the staff, but either side of
the staff use the memory jogger EGBDF.
There is a common switching note between the
memory joggers inside and either side of the
staff. These are described in the following.
The Spaces
– While the spaces inside the
staff spell the word FACE, it is the memory
jogger EGBDF that names the spaces either
side of the staff.
Above the staff the common switching note is
the top space E which is the end of Face inside
the staff and the beginning of EGBDF above
the staff.
Below the staff the common switching note is
the bottom space F which is the beginning of
FACE inside the staff and the end of EGBDF
below the staff.
