posticon Poll results - String Name Mnemonics


Many thanks for all the wonderful suggestions for ways to help our students remember their open string note names.

Here is a result of the site poll entitled: 'Vote for the best mnemonic' [155 votes total]:

 
Every Acid Dealer Gets Busted Eventually (51) 33%

Eat A Darn Good Breakfast Everyday (24) 15%

Elephants and Donkeys Grow Big Ears (22) 14%

Even After Dark Girls Believe Everything (15) 10%

Easter Bunnies Get Drunk At Easter (7) 5%

Elvis Aaron's Dead God Bless Elvis (6) 4%
Elephants Always Drive Green Busses Everywhere (6) 4%

Easter Bunnies Go Dancing At Easter (5) 3%
Eat Another Dead Grasshopper Big Eddie (5) 3%
Every Alsation Dog Got Big Ears (5) 3%

Every Aching Dog Goes Back Everyday (2) 1%
Every Boy Gets Dogged About Eating (1) 1%



Not surprising to see that drugs, food and girls feature strongly in the top four, but Elephants and Donkeys? That's a bit worrying! emoticon Nick

I don't know about other parts of the world, but in the USA, "Denny's" is a well known restaurant chain famous for their "Grand Slam" breakfasts. The mnemonic I've always heard is:

Eat At Denny's Get Bad Eggs
