I’m an amateur tin whistle player. I come from an Egyptian background. I would like to make some of the traditional folk Coptic tunes available in ABC notation. Many of the Coptic tunes use 3/4 tone interval which can be transcribed in ABC notation and played on Tin Whistle and Baroque Recorder. For example, if one blocks the first hole, opens the second and closes the last 4 holes in the tin whistle, E half flat ♭ can be played.

I’m interested in the versatility and power of ABC notation and the ability to transfer the work to other music software or to play it as such. I also appreciate that it is an open source format.
