ABSTRACT
An essay is presented about the origin of music staff. It mentions the misunderstanding among historians who really invented the musical staff such as the claims of others that Guido of Arezzo is the inventor. It also presents different views of historians such as of David Hiley that the staff existed long time before Guido and that in the late ninth-century, chordae are used and it is the beginning of staff. Different figures that show patterns of pricking and ruling are also presented.
