That final ‘2’ went missing…

James, some guidance on ABC notation’s current ways ~

Think standard notation, as to layout ~ for example the grouping on notes, yours first and then the suggested alternative with corrections, and space either side of the bar line is just to make for an easier ABC read, that form of notation going a lot further back in time than its application as an ascii code here ~

& past ways, grouping the notes as to reflect their layout in dotted notation has been around a long as I can remember, and I have examples of ABC notation from as far back as the 1800s, but not mine… 😉
