GUEST,09 Jun 18 - 06:24 PM ABC versus Standard Notation (115* d) RE: ABC versus Standard Notation 16 Jun 18


I am glad my suggestion, way up the thread, that some of you were at cross-purposes with The Sandman seems to have been helpful.

It is interesting that The Sandman had not come across what he refers to as 'ABC technology' and that Jack Campin had not come across the less technical usage that The Sandman was referring to.

Can I suggest to The Sandman that the limited functionality of the ABC he dislikes may actually be a deliberate choice. If workshop is primarily 'by ear' then *not* having standard notation, with it's poor representation of the rhythm being taught, may be an advantage.

Many people pick up rhythms be ear much faster than they can find the notes so being told what some of the notes are helps move things along in a workshop.
