The Treble or G clef

In the example below, you can see the notes represented by each one of the lines and spaces of a treble or G clef. Notice that the lowest line corresponds to the note E, and the first space to the note F. In other words, notes on the staff (line-space-line...) follow the natural order (C, D, E, F, G, A, and B). Notice that we can write underneath the lowest line, and above the fifth line, or highest line:

We can use ledger lines to write notes higher than the G and lower than the D:
