What is the real use of ABC notation?
Please pardon my ignorance. but what is the real use of ABC notation?
My Yahoo.com session group provides both sheet music and ABC notation for new tunes. When I download the ABC it appears to be British MI5 code from World War II. I went to www.abcnotation.com and came away more confused.
If it is use to play a tune, it appears as though one would be through Part A and half way into Part B reading sheet music then trying to decipher all that MI 5 code.
Help me out here and don’t ask "Which door did you come in".
