When the G-clef is placed on the first line of the stave, it is called the French clef or French violin clef.
When the F-clef is placed on the fourth line, it is called the bass clef. This is the only F-clef used today, so that the terms "F-clef" and "bass clef" are often regarded as synonymous.
When the F-clef is placed on the third line, it is called the baritone clef.
When the F-clef is placed on the fifth line, it is called the sub-bass clef. It is identical to the treble clef transposed down 2 octaves.
When the C-clef is placed on the third line of the stave, it is called the alto clef. As with all C-clefs, this line indicates the position of middle C.
When the C-clef is placed on the fourth line of the stave, it is called the tenor clef.
Because it is equivalent to the F-clef on the third line, the C-clef on the fifth line version of the baritone clef is a rarity.
