What is the longest word that can be formed using the musical notes? (ABCDEFG)

I don't know the answer, and I can't find it on google.

I was assuming that you can only use each letter once?

OP said nothing that prohibits using them multiple times, so I assumed it was OK.

In Swedish also H is a note on the musical scale.
Does this make the problem easier?

lol that is true indeed, didnt notice the H was missing until you said it. in germany H is the white note between A and C, isnt it the same in english?
the B does not really fit in because its the only black note (between A and H). gotta bring all other black notes in too then, which will be difficult since they have 2- or 3-letter-names (at least in germany that is) ðŸ˜‰

btw, the H, A, C and B remind me of a story. the famous J. S. Bach sometimes put a signature into his compositions by playing the notes-sequence B-A-C-H somewhere near the end. Good idea eh? ðŸ˜€

Wait, so B is H and A sharp is B?

Yes.

basically yes, though in germany A sharp is called "Ais"...H flat is the one called B (but its the same note of course).

Right.
As 'every' black key could be calld -iss if it is raised, and -ess if it is lowered.
Ex: Fiss is the same key as gess and it lies between F and G.
