Maybe we have missed some very important points re Mr ABC.

He is an superior bagpipe/whistle/sax player, and a very proficient dancer/demonstrator for Kerry Fletcher. And playing for her workshops you need to be very flexible. Musically & danceably.

And he plays in Angles, Moltenamba and the Climax Ceilidh Band. If you dance French &/or ceilidh you already know that. Excellent dance bands.

And, if you wanted to be envious he is a really nice bloke, and a PhD I believe.

And he gave us ABC.

You know, some things just chime with the public and ABC does that.

Thankyou Chris (from a drummer & dancer)

PS there is one thing that any musical notation struggles with, dance - trust me. But you can add text instruction, it is just easier with ABC.
