german musical notation was the first postmodern meme because they took something that already worked and then put the letter H in there for no reason


germany: the semitone below C is called H now. not B
world: ugh okay fine
germany: the one below that is called B
world: what the fuck. stop

@revenant wtf i had never heard of this before, what's your problem Germany

@revenant It's the same in Denmark. And then we confusingly call Bb - just B. 😅

@revenant amazing! This is exactly how I learned it in Russia, and was very surprised that in America B is what I used to call H. So it's not just Germany, is what I'm saying.
