im not sure if this is a typo or what, but several times in different areas have I noticed instead of a B note someone write H. I know this has nothing to do with theory because not only have i not heard of it myself neither does a few musician buddies of mine. I think i heard it was a language issue, or maybe i just assumed that i dont know.

anyone is it a typo or is there some foreign language mistranslation of the letter B or has no one besides me even seen this before?

my guess is it's a typo since H is so close to B on a keyboard.

thats what my buddy figured but then again Ive never seen a T note for an F or a W note for an A.


then again if you squint your eyes like if your vision is terrible a lower case h can be confused for b and upper case H may be confused for B. still not sure.

In a few countries, mostly central and eastern Europe, i.e. Germany and Austria, they use the note H in place of B and B in place of Bb.

Yeah, Bach used to spell out his name all the time in pieces. It'd be Bb A C B, look for that in his works.

I'm pretty sure because it's because "b" and "h" are pretty much the same letter. And over time they either removed something or added something. Don't remember precicely..Just google it.

-Nice that someone knows the answer, although he forgot to mention that Sweden uses H too.

It's a different system used in some parts of Europe, just like the far more popular Note-system with a B and Bb and the "less popular" Solfege.

in my country we also use H instead of B, B is Hb in our system

I believe that the letter "h" is where we get our contemporary natural sign.
