Default Notation Question


I was wondering what the 'x' notation in the print outs referred to (in Beethoven's Moonlight specifically). It appears in front of the note as do the sharp, flat and neutral notations. I dont recall ever seeing it before, but its been almost 7 years since I've learned a new piece, so I could have just forgotten. Thanks,

Dear John thank you for your inquiry.

That sign is the "double-sharp". For example, in the case of the Moonlight Sonata if you look in last bar of Page 2 you can see the double sharp F played by the left hand: that's actually a G (natural, of course).

Please, let me know if you need any further help, I will be happy to assist you.

Thank you again!
