Music is art - no matter what form of music you prefer, its undoubtedly art - an art that many love, which is why I chose to give it a tribute by painting some music notes with a pencil on a sheet (lead sheet - chord chart) and a clef violin key that shall resemble the music notation / musical notation system, that represents music in the form of written symbols.




Learn more about the musical notation system:


Music notation or musical notation is any system that represents aurally perceived music, through the use of written symbols.


The earliest form of musical notation can be found in a cuneiform tablet that was created at Nippur, Iraq in about 2000 B.C. The tablet represents fragmentary instructions for performing music, that the music was composed in harmonies of thirds, and that it was written using a diatonic scale. A tablet from about 1250 B.C. shows a more developed form of notation. Although the interpretation of the notation system is still controversial, it is clear that the notation indicates the names of strings on a lyre, the tuning of which is described in other tablets. Although they were fragmentary, these tablets represent the earliest recorded melodies found anywhere in the world.
