Another type of clef is the bass clef. The symbol used for the bass clef is like a stylized apostrophe with two dots to the right of it. In between the dots is the fourth line of the staff indicating the placement of the note F below middle C. This is why the bass clef is also known as F clef. Musical instruments in the lower ranges, such as the bass guitar
, use the bass clef. On the piano, the bass clef is played by the left hand.
