9 beaming.

The bars joining groups of quavers, semiquavers etc are called beams.
If you don't put them in, i.e. just put in the notes separately, does the program add the beams correctly?

11. Part specification

Dance music, in particular, can often specify a tune as having several parts , e.g A music, B music, C music (identified by P:A etc in abc)

A part specification is a formula which tells you how many times each part is played, and in what order.

A simple one could be AABAAC, meaning play part A twice, part B once, part A twice and part C once.

You can specify more complex ones such as ((AB)*2D(AC)*2)*3
