G_8 is the lilypond for a G clef with a little 8 underneath it to
indicate that the notes sound an octave lower than they would if the
little 8 weren't there.  Lots of printed music is sloppy about whether
it's there or not, but when you're doing electronic publishing and
using the MIDI file, it's worth taking the trouble to get all the
clefs in one piece on the same pitch description.
