I think I read that english speaking countries use B while others use H.
Perhaps we can get word from more countries?
Wouldn't surprise me at all, we've all heard about the odd pound, gallon, inch, B, mile, pint... pint is good. cool.gif

Yes, pint is wonderful ... except in the USA where a pint is 20% smaller - that can add up over the course of a night of beers smile.gif

In school I have music theory and my teacher in class learned us that: Classical composers like bach wrote things like: Preludium in H. In classical music there are thousands of things like that. And we can´t just change bachs Preludium in H to Preludium in B. my mother play a lot classical music and for here H is what we call B, but B for her is Bb.
But she has never heard about it(Bb). when she studied music at University they learned H not B.

I think why we got B and H is because the classical musicans learned it that way and it´s hard to learn something that you have been told for all your life as musican.

I hope you understand my bad english rolleyes.gif

I heard that it's a misinterpretation. Some guy apparently had a pretty bad handwriting, so the B looked like an H. smile.gif

Don't know if it's true (I doubt it), but that's the word at the music academy in sweden

I use Elixir® Strings
