April 26 NYT Strands Solved

Music theory is not my strongest suit. While you will find me strumming the guitar and singing my heart out after work, I’m not familiar with the theoretical bit. After frantically searching for words and finding nothing, I ended up using my first hint.

That gave me FLAT, and even then, I couldn’t relate it to music. Somehow I came across NATURAL and that turned out to be a theme word to my surprise. Still nothing. I found SHARP fortunately in the bottom left and that was a theme word too.

I went blank and another hint revealed CLEF. This was when I realized what the puzzle was about and instantly found SIGNATURE, REST and MEASURE right after. That ultimately led me to find NOTATION as the Spangram and I called it a day.

Yeah, I’m not getting over the fact that I had to use two hints to figure that out. Anyway, what about you? Did you have to use any hints or was it easy to you? Let me know in the comments down below.
