Subject: RE: Test of ABC Format
Well, I'll certainly wait for Alan's contribution, Alison. In the meantime, I think it would be worthwhile for some of us to download ABCMUS or MUSE and play around with them. With ABCMUS, I can highlight and copy a tune from the forum, and then play it right from the clipboard without having to save it as a separate file. Most of the ABC tunes I've found online seem to be music for folk dances, not singable songs - anybody know where I can find more actual songs in ABC? I'm having fun with this. Oh, and I unzipped all the Digital Tradition Songwright tunes, and I've found that they play very nicely with ABCMUS. Still and all, I'll betcha our Very Own Alan will come up with something worth waiting for.
