Hey Man! What Are the Names of The White Key Notes on This Piano, Man!
Now that you know where middle C is, finding the rest of the white notes is not a difficult process. There are seven different white notes on a piano. They are A, B, C, D, E, F and G. The white note to the right of middle C is D. The next note to the right is E, followed by F, G and A. There’s no H in piano. Instead we name the H note A and start the alphabet again.
The white note to the left of middle C is B, followed by A, G, F, E, D and C (not middle C, but another C that sounds deeper and lower than mid C). Basically you are reciting the alphabet backwards when you figure out adjacent white notes from right to left.
Before you watch the video, here are two things to remember: There are only seven letters and fifty two white notes. That means that a lot of notes are named A, B, C, D, E, F and G. The more you play to the right side of the piano, the higher the pitch sounds. The more you travel to the left part of the piano, the lower the notes sound. That means that you can have the same labeled note (for example: A) sounding high or low in pitch.
The second thing to remember is that saying “Man” all the time when asking a question is both entertaining and annoying all rolled into one. Also, if you really feel the need to always say “Man”, please make sure that you are actually talking to a male and not a female.
Here is a small video showing the white notes on the piano keyboard.
