G double flat
The musical note "G" preceded by two flat (♭♭) symbols. The effect of each flat symbol (♭) lowers the pitch of the indicated note a semitone (or half step), so G double flat is the pitch "G" lowered by two semitones (two half steps). The resultant pitch would sound the same as the pitch "F".
[Eng.] G double flat;
[Fr.] Sol double bˇmol (m);
[Ger.] Geses (n);
[It.] Sol doppio bemolle (m);
[Sp.] Sol doble bemol.
