@Volt - Where did you learn your manners? I do not think 32nd notes are the rare gems you think they are. Good thing we didn't put 64th notes up there, jeez. But thanks for helping out with the additional details on the legatos (or "Lagatos", as you say).

There are many aspects of sheet music that are not covered (yet) on this page as it was simply meant to be a quick reference. But maybe we'll incorporate some of these tidbits of information further up on the page, minus the 'tude.

Hey @NewbieNeedsHelp, assuming you're still looking for an answer here 2 months later :P... I recommend: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Key_signature

@BA: where did you learn to read music? You can do tabs great but when it comes to teaching actual sheet music you are not that great. I mean looking up at your example you just made it more difficult for people to learn. Most piano players, especially those who look through music on this site, will never see a 32nd note. Calling it 1/32 note is just funny. Its like you learned a dead language of music.

@harryb: the example you are talking about is not a tie but a Lagato marking for piano. It means everything inside the arch of the mark, the "tie" as you call it, is actually to be played as smooth or unbroken as possible. Just like the Slur marking on a Flute or any wind/string instrument. You will not hold E through to C, you will just play EGE/C as smooth as you can.

@harryb - What the? I don't think I've ever seen sheet notation like that before, did you just make that example up?

If not, post a link to it and I'll make up a better answer.

Not much said about how to play tied notes on piano. First note E (first bar) tied to first note Middle C (seccond Bar)3/4 timing. In between these notes is G & E (first bar)/E G E/C C C/ I under stand that you play the first E and hold the count for 4 beats (I belive I understand that correctly). What do I do with the notes G & E. Do I play them at all like in a slur on a flute or what?
Wow.

@Learjeff - thanks for the feedback. You'd have to agree that A# and Bb do have the same frequencies on the piano, so for the purposes of the "sheet music for pianists" section I believe the A# is acceptable (though not traditional). Having hung up my bow and rosin long ago I cannot speak for the violin. But you make a compelling argument, and I shall look into that.

attackattackrocks is right. In any major scale, you want every letter to appear. You want to see A, Bb, C ... not A, A#, C. That's what Read Mee means.

Furthermore, A# and Bb do not have the same frequencies. On a piano, each key actually corresponds to 3 different notes, and is tuned to the geometric mean of the three. But when playing a violin and not playing in a tempered scale, they're different notes.

This is a helpful page. You might want to make it accurate as well.

@read mee: Read this! The B key is labeled in the keyboard picture. I don't know what you mean 'where is your B key'? Where is your B key?

@attackattackrocks - Conventional wisdom is that the note should be shown as a B flat, not an A sharp. Granted the musical scholar may consider it bad "musical grammar" to use them interchangeably. But is there ever an instance where Bb does not sound exactly like A#?   

A# and Bb may serve different purposes for the music scholar but music is not composed solely with the intention of impressing the academics. A-sharp and B-flat are the exact same frequency, audibly indistinguishable.

For more information on this topic or how to quickly lose interest in it, see the following: http://jtauber.com/blog/2006/11/17/why_a-sharp_is_not_b-flat/

Yes 187.140... we DID list the note as A# and not Bb. And we did it on purpose. You got a problem with that?

The scale of F should be shown as being in the key of F Major, with a Flat indicated for B, i.e. it's not A# in the scale, but B flat.

@Nawk: There is no difference between piano and trumpet sheet music, other than the key (or pitch) the song is written in.

@Socrates:
All the tabs are viewable as sheet music.

Hey EMO, I'm assuming you're trying to print a tab in sheet music form. You could just print off the tabs, or... if you must print the sheet music, then you could take a print screen. (If you're on a PC, hold Ctrl and push the prntscrn key, then paste it into an image program like Paint).
I will assume this solves all your problems.
That'll be 5 dolla.
