I'd just been playing around with mandolin abc2tab and transposing and seemed to be getting blanks for notes I expected to be in range.
I have since tried an abc of an old favourite of mine with no transposing:

I don't seem to be getting any output on the G mandolin string. I don't always trust my own reading of ABC or music but I've even played mandolin along with this ABC and I know the notes are all there...
Am I missing something (quite possible) or is there a problem?
