Subject: RE: Reading ABC
Note also that the two things are different. "D" means display a D chord (symbol/name) on the score. abc file players will not necessarily PLAY a chord at this point.

[D F A] means play these three notes together. The notes do NOT have to make a "named" chord, they can be any (two or more) notes, including discords.
