    That is the Alto Clef.
    You usually don't see that except in choral vocal music charts or when violins are playing along with viola....etc

    In music notation, dal segno, often abbreviated as D.S., is used as a navigation marker. From Italian for "from the sign", D.S. appears in sheet music and instructs a musician to repeat a passage starting from the sign shown at right, sometimes called the segno in English.

    In operas of the 18th century, dal segno arias were a common alternative to da capo arias which began with an opening ritornello, which was then omitted in the repeat (the sign being placed after the ritornello).

    Don't you get it?
    Turn off the distortion pedal and get to the da capo arias!
