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. 😀
