Subject: RE: ABC versus Standard Notation
I'm most impressed by you folks who can read abc from the page and turn it in to music in your head fluently.
I've always assumed it was there as a simple text form for sharing a tune when pdfs or photos were not an option.

I think I've found it most useful via mandolintab when I've wanted to create a midi in a different key.
Or change the line breaks.
Or change the font size.

For me the snag with being given a piece of paper(\pdf) with the dots is its lack of adaptability.
