129. Star Notes

A lot of music-making today, so I've got a musical star:

Ever since I found out about Bach's way of inserting his name into his music (by playing the notes 'b', 'a', 'c' 'h' - which only works with the German names) I was very annoyed by the fact that only two of my name's letters are also notes. That's when I developed my own way to expand the names of notes to include the whole alphabet (which basically ends in most of the notes having two names^^). For the sake of simplicity and structure I used the English name (means: 'b' instead of 'h' for those used to the German ones).

So this is what 'star' might sound like in Music:

  1. It sounds like the start of The Entertainer Rag, the theme tune of the movie The Sting.

  2. Haha! The first part of the combination, yes! I had exactly the same association the moment I played it. :)
