abc fiddle/banjo player
Many thanks to those Members who responded to my original posting on September 10, 2002 and who provided me with feedback. This windows program is now available to all interested Members from my webpage at http://www.geocities.com/shanaway1/.
The webpage shows sample screens and you can read a notefile, before deciding if you want to download the player.
The program reads and displays the contents of any selected file of abc tunes and will allow the user to choose: an individual tune, the midi sound instrument (fiddle or banjo), the tempo and the number of replays - AND -, it will display the notes, as they are played, on a screen fiddle/banjo fingerboard. I hope that it may help some novice fiddle/banjo players, who don’t read music, to learn to play new tunes ‘by sight’, as well as ‘by ear’.
