A modern parable! No, I don’t own a music shop, but doing this strip makes me wish I did.

Some clefs I didn’t get a chance to go into:

C-clef, percussion clef

One may notice I mentioned the C-clef (which also serves as alto clef for the viola), but I didn’t really get into it. Welllll…frankly, I couldn’t find much of anything on its evolution. I’m disappointed; judging from its current shape, its original had to be a doozy. Apparently a more squared appearance shows up in plainchant sheet music, but there simply wasn’t enough to put into the comic. There’s also the neutral or percussion staff, which resembles a hollow box; kinda like when a non-ASCII character crashes your ASCII party.

Also I jammed Dies Irae in there because I cannot help myself. I must be stopped
