Joe Thanks for the response. I tried to understand the info on the thread link you gave me, but I left most of my "formal" musical skills in High school. The stuff we all (I assume) play is FOLK MUSIC much of which was communicated through the oral tradition. Even though I have been playing for most of my life I can't seem to get the hang of this ABC XYZ Midi stuff. Are they the same? What in the world is ASCII? Everytime someone gives an "explanation" it's like reading the Microsoft Help pages where they use the word being defined in the explanation. Does anyone out there know of a MIDI or ABC or whatever site for dummies?
