### Notation

Hi everyone I’m very new to the site and apologies if this is posted in the wrong area. My question relates to the way the tunes are written in ABC notation. The following is an example of morrisons jig I found on the site. Can someone explain to me what the numbers throughout the notation are for ?

X: 1

T: Morrison’s

R: jig

M: 6/8

L: 1/8

K: Edor

E3 B3|EBE AFD|G3 FGA|dAG FED:|

Bee fee|aee fee|gfe d2A|BAG FGA|

Bee fee|aee fee|Bee fee|faf def|

g3 gfe|def g2d|edc d2A|BAG FED|

The notation I can follow no problem but get confused with the numbering.

Many thanks Tim
