I'm sure there are loads of threads on the Mudcat directing you towards ABC information & ABC players, but you can also click on our band's links page at www.questor-cp.demon.co.uk/links.htm (sorry, can't remember the blue clicky thing code off-hand) where we have lots of links to the ABC pages. If you download ABC2Win you can display ABC files as sheet music, & it's possible to cut & paste the 'score' into word so you can print it out.
Sorry Joe, about the lack of line breaks. I wrote it in Notepad & pasted it in, it looked OK when I sent it!!
