Heh, now you're just asking for trouble. Imagine if they did that for every instrument...on its own C. Egads! What a mess in, say, and orchestra with all the extra instruments, if the director for some reason preferred to refer to the notes by name/number. And then imagine my confusion if you talk about C1 meaning flute meaning middle-C, but I'm thinking piano, oh but wait maybe it's bells? And then there's the doublers (triplets? quadruplets????) on Sax on the Web, who'd have to know C1 on sax and flute and Lord only knows what-all else they play (besides $20k flutes based on some of the posts I've seen--totally not fair that a saxist has a flute so much better than me a flutist grumble)
I guess, to be logical, C4 should actually be C1 for the flute. But it isn't logical.
No, because you didn't explain why they ever started with C in the first place, rather than A. Did they plan to always add those three bottom notes to a piano, hence the C? Or what?...
Have I confused everyone enough?
I cry uncle.It's because the key of C has no flats or sharps.
