Re: Lilypond – Grey Larsen’s itm-ornamentation now notable

Lilypond seems interesting. Is there anyway to convert an .abc file into a .ly file for LilyPond?

Sean, if you Google abc2ly I’m sure there’s a utility somewhere.

Lilypond includes an abc2ly tool, but last time I tried it, it didn’t work very well. If you’re tech savvy enough to install perl6, I have an ABC module for it which works well for tunes. For instance, http://www.harmonyware.com/tunes/Mr_and_Mrs_Osantowski_of_Saginaw.html used it to generate the graphic / pdf.
