Subject: RE: Tune Req: 'Arkansas' (from 'Big River')
Jimmy, I've been learning ABC notation. Since I can read music pretty well it's fairly easy for me to write an ABC notation file just from looking at the sheet music. Then I put it in the ABC Convertamatic form at Concertina.net, here. Hit submit and go to a page that prints out what I've written and has a midi link to listen to the midi of it.
Try it. If you want to learn ABC notation, search on the net for a site that you feel comfortable with.
Here's the ABC for your tune.......maybe.....check to see if it's right. I used a little judgment to make 4 beats to each measure.
