Clefs of Speed

We interrupt this informative series about the production of a purty music score for the following fight-to-the-death pay-per-view event!

Okay, you smart alecks out there. It’s a treble clef throw down!

Well, not exactly. I’m not actually challenging anyone to a clef-drawing competition, but since two of you commented on my comment about my treble-clef short-cut method, I thought I’d have a little fun with the idea.

I mentioned that my handwritten treble clefs look like hastily written 6’s, because I don’t want to take the time to do 2 pencil strokes, and was contacted by two individuals, at least one of whom is of highly questionable moral character 😉 , who claim to be able to write a neat, proper, America-loving treble clef in one stroke. Perhaps this is the sort of thing they have in mind:


Not bad. Requires a bit of effort and concentration to negotiate those loops and turns, though.

The two-stroke method is actually easier for me:


Still takes too long, though.

Now, if I practice the one-long-up-and-down-stroke, loopy one, I can get a bit faster, but with a corresponding degradation in quality:


…and it’s still not as fast as my smokin’ hot 6-clef.

Don’t believe me? Okay, I timed it. 😛


So there you have it. Necessity and impatience — the mothers of invention. 😀

Thanks for reading!
