ABC is a simple way of producing and editing sheet music. The files are in text form and take up very little room, and there are thousands upon thousands of traditional tunes to be found on the Web in ABC.

It is easy to learn and write, and there are now a number of shareware score editors available, both specifically for ABC and supporting ABC format. You'll find links to lots of ABC collections in the music section, or click here.
