High Cs

I placed the symbol for the high Cs in the wrong spot so you will have to amend them.

Re: Water Under The Keel

I’d been looking for ABC for tunes from ‘The Brendan Voyage’ for a while, so it was good to find this.

I couldn’t get the ABC to play at first, but a bit of detective work revealed the cause, so I edited it into
working order. Just for a laugh, I added chords, a drone and a brilliantly original one-note introduction.
Dunno if I’ll ever be able to play it on an Anglo though. Here’s the slightly fannied-about with version
which I came up with….

Re: Water Under The Keel

Aye, I suspected this - in tunes cut’n’pasted from a comment (like my previous one), apostrophes (‘)
(for the high c) are rendered as close single quotes (’) and ABC doesn’t like it - at least EasyABC doesn’t.

Tunes downloaded from an actual ‘tune’ (as opposed to a comment) seem perfectly OK.

Is this a known ‘problem’ (I’m a new user and not fully familiar with machinery of this site yet)?
