Not sure what happened here Charlotte6404! Could you perhaps have left us a comment so we know where it’s from? Your ABC is a little off in places, plus you submitted it as a reel (in 4/4) when it is quite clearly a jig in 6/8! But I’ve done my best to tidy it up and added my setting below yours. There are plenty of resources around the web for learning ABC - http://www.abcnotation.com is a good place to start.
Do you think you could tell us a bit more about the tune? Did you write it yourself?
Nicely done Tøm, though one ‘C/c’ was missed ~ | cAA ABC | / | cAA ABc |. Charlotte is using one of the old ways with ABC Notation, which pre-dates the gradual evolution of it to an ASCII code for computers. More commonly in use in Ireland, in my experience was, starting with middle C:
C - D - E - F - G - A - B - c - d - e - f - g - a = b - then for the next octave a small mark would be made above the note, akin to ~ c’ - d’ - e’ - etc., and to drop below middle C a mark would be made below the note, akin to current use of a following comma ~ B, - A, - G, ~ etc. For computer keyboards it was easier for the current convention to have those identifying marks for the next higher or lower octave to follow the note being modified, the use of the apostrophe to raise it and octave, a comma to lower it. I’d also come across Charlotte’s version of ABC notation, starting with middle C:
C - D - E - F - G - A - B - C’ - D’ - E’ - F’ - G’ - A’ - B’ - C” ~ etc.
However, most systems did also have a way to show the length of notes, one being to underline a note to lenthen it, and that could be one, two, or three underlines, etc., equivalent to, in current computer use and using middle C ~ C2, C3, C4…
This is written in part for Charlotte’s sake… Here’s more on the ASCII code version as used on site here:
Morning Sunday, X:3
Heard it played by Teada.
Re: Morning Sunday
I think this is a composition of Charlie Lennon.
Re: Morning Sunday
I can confirm that "Teada’s" sleeve notes have it as composed by Charlie Lennon.
