Solidmahog

To whom it may concern;

My handle comes from the signature catch phrase of the late great singing poacher;

Tommy "Mahog" Mackenzie

His likes will never be here again!


A few 2/4’s that I like, don’t like the polka classification for 2/4’s, that aren’t polkas. These should all play in most abc editors as typed provided you keep the L: field as 1/16. Most conversion programs should also convert these abc’s to dots correctly. The session.org abc input page doesn’t have the facility to input the L: field in any other value other than 1/8. Pity really.
