Tunes with harmony lines
First, a technical question. When I’ve seen an an ABC notation of a tune with an accompaniment (i.e. with one or two additional lines) it looks as though the parts are rendered in sequence rather than together: that is, first all the 32 bars (say) of the top line, the whole second part under that, and so on. When this is converted into dots, it appears in this same order on the page. How do you change it to read as parallel lines as in printed MSS, so that you’re reading melody and harmony simultaneously?
Second question … given that session music (being the subject matter of the site) almost always consists of collectively playing the melody, rarely with a prepared accompaniment, is there much interest in seeing tunes posted here with written harmony lines? Reason for asking: the trio I play with has produced quite a few and I’d put some into the collection if I thought they might be of interest.
