As easy as ABC?
#1
I'm not sure if this is the right category for this discussion but we can restrict it to Scottish music if we wish... Smile 

There's a discussion elsewhere https://thesession.org/discussions/39461  which is a bit of an old chestnut but I thought it might be good to hear the views of people here.

In short, I use both systems but while I think "ABC" is a useful tool for simple melodies e.g. the "bare bones" versions (Though in many cases, these are enough)  of most traditional and other tunes,  it is less useful for more complicated and ornamentated arrangements. Apparently, there is still a lot of scope but, in my opinion, it makes the process too cumbersome for my liking and "staff notation" is much better when you require a learn more detailed arrangement.

What are your thoughts?
