Low Road to Glin

For those who may not be versed in ABC notation the grace notes before and after eighth notes (measure 2, 6, and end of measure 12) are essentially a short roll. In ABC this is more often shown with the infinity sign, so the second measure would look like: ~B2Ad Bded

Half/Short rolls

They are optional - I prefer to notate the rolls rather than use the tilda/turn symbol because you can see the underlying notes more clearly, and it usually plays better in an abc-to-midi player. Just a convention, hope it doesn’t throw anyone!
