Thread Name: What is ABC format?
Subject: RE: What is ABC format?
Joe Offer; a slur means that all the notes within it are to be played smoothly, without any breaks between them (so it may cover a run of notes, for example). A tie joins notes of the same pitch; only the first one is played - it's a way of showing that a note is lengthened.
