### Joe Buchanan’s Scottish Tome update and some abc notation used that’s entirely weird…

Look at line seven, first measure in the scan if you will:

http://www.thisoldtractor.com/guzzi007/Scottish_Tome/Page_651.pdf

then look at the abc notation below that "works" to depict it. Ghastly. Zero divided by two! I think I just flunked math… However, this is the last page of Joe Buchanan’s Scottish Tome and my first (and last) check pass through all 1102 tunes across 652 scanned pages. There is more to do but the light at the end of the tunnel - is probably still a train.

W:Errata: See the first measure line seven? I used a really horrible way in abc notation to accomplish

W:what’s in the scan. Ugh. Zero divided by two. Fortunately, those notes won’t actually play.
