ABC Notation



ABC Notation

The old music scores were encoded using the ABC code. This code is largely used in English, American and Irish music.

This code

- is much used, rather standardised, independent of the different softwares that generate music scores. This makes the coding work hopefully sustainable ;

- is well suited for traditional music ;

- allows to easily transpose, generate midi-files and some tablatures, deliver high quality music scores.

If needed, you will find here more information about the ABC Code, and some more using your favourite search engine.
