ASCII MUSICAL NOTATION developed by Leigh Ann Hussey with help from Shadowthought and Josh Gordon Each line of the music consists of 4 lines of music. The time signature(s), the lines between bars, and each note take up one column, with modifiers such as sharps, flats, and dots extending a note up to three columns. The time signature is written at the beginning in the obvious way. Three vertical bars (lines 2 to 4) mark the divisions between measures. Lines 1 to 3 indicate note durations, as follows: 1/16 1/8 1/4 1/2 dotted-1/2 1/8 1/4 note note note note note rest rest = _ | | | | | ' % | | | o o. Line 4 indicates the pitch. The numbers 1 to 8 mark the octave including middle C (A through F); 1' to 8', one octave above middle C; 1" to 8", two octaves above middle C; '1 to '8, the octave below middle C. A number followed by a # is a sharp; a number followed by a lower-case b is a flat. Underscores connecting a note to the next note indicate a slur. Consider the following examples: HOOF AND HORN | | | || 4 | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | || - | | o | | | o | | | | | | | | o || 4 1 7b 1 | 1 7b 1 | 1 3b 2 7b | 7b 2 1 || Hoof and horn, hoof and horn, All that dies shall be re-born.
