ABC Question

ABC Question

In the "Comments" to the reel Dans Loudieg this abc notation appears as a correction to the dots: AeeA cZ~A2
What is cZ?

Thanks.

Re: ABC Question

Z is a quaver (eighth note) rest.

Re: ABC Question

Z = a rest. You use it just like any other note (as in adding "2" will make it a quarter note rest). I’ll be posting a complete ABC guide soon, so feel free to check that out!

"You use it just like any other note (as in adding "2" will make it a quarter note rest)."
Depends on what value you set the L: field too

Re: ABC Question

The OP is asking about a reel. On this site the default note length is an eighth note. [L:1/8]
