Do my names ring a bell

Question

Posted · Report post

I'm an underage officer in a four story house

From basement to roof, a scurrying mouse.

On every long floor, and stairs between,

These are the places I am seen.

A faerie driver, a spot, or an egg,

For the gift I give all have begged.

A short little letter to a friend

Signed with seven names;

The end.

Thank you Braiser. That means a lot. I was especially proud of this one, despite a few others that have been cast aside. I was tending toward something codified, such as to make a word or answer from the notes a-g. Not much except "be deaf" to Beethoven or something. Then I just meshed a rhyme-riddle. Again, thanks.

Ok, wow! This is one well formed riddle. Congratulations!

No ambiguity, nothing else fits. 5 stars for sure. Well done :bow:

I would have given it 10 stars but there was only 5!

I'm testing it on my friends!

Can you explain it a little further? I'm having trouble figuring out where everything fits with music... Is it a scale specifically or just different music terms?

Explanation of Riddle

(In threes) I’m an underage Army officer in a four story house

Underage = Minor (chord), Army officer = Major. Four story house is the enclosed, five-line graph on which notes are written.

From basement to roof, a scurrying mouse.

Notes can be below graph or above

On every long floor, and stairs between,

These are the places I am seen.

Notes are between lines (long floors) and bisected by lines (stairs).

A faerie driver, a spot, an egg,

A single note with a stem looks like a tiny golf driver. Without, just a spot, or can be an open whole note, commonly referred to as an egg.

For the gift I give all men beg. (music, naturally)

A short little letter to a friend (note)

Signed with seven names. (Notes a,b,c,d,e,f,g)

The end (this means I needed something to make it rhyme :lol: )

Clue: Holding hands at the hop (for sheet music, notes are joined)

Hit the bars when we stop (Double bar on sheet music means music ends)
