Bass clef mnemonic is a new approach to remember the notes of the bass clef easily. The notes of the bass clef are G, B, D, F, A. Now alphabets are abstract and cannot be memorized easily if we have to remember a couple of letters in a particular order. But with the help of memory techniques, we can commit the notes of the bass clef to memory.
I am going to assign substitute/mnemonic words to each of the bass clef notes and will link the mnemonics with the help of linking system and create an illogical and ridiculous bass clef mnemonic story.

|Bass Clef Mnemonic||Mnemonic Words|
If you notice, I have used the mnemonic words which are related to music itself. The next step is very simple. Simple create an illogical story with the mnemonic words. To start with, see in your mind’s eye huge and thick bass guitar strings (Bass) and then imagine an electric guitar(G) made out of bass strings and suddenly you start playing the guitar like a bongo (B), and you start dancing (D) like a mad man holding the bongo and millions of fiddles (F) start shooting at you and then those fiddles transform into a huge acoustic (A) guitar.
So here is our ridiculous Bass Clef mnemonic story. Make it more ridiculous and illogical if you want. Go through the story 10 times. Now try to recall the mnemonic words. Try them backwords. If you are able to recall, congratulations! You have successfully learnt the bass clef notes forwards and backwards.
If you find the above method a little difficult, then you can resort to one other mnemonic device where we take all the bass clef notes and make a letter mnemonic out of it as given below.
