bracket annotation

Postby smarmit » Mon Jul 13, 2009 9:55 pm

Hi. I'm very new to ABC. I'm using abcm2ps for typesetting the scores.

I compose snare drumming scores for bagpipe band style rudimental drumming. The only thing that I can't figure out how to do that I've done before in other software (I mostly use Lime), is to draw a bracket over sections of the music that in my genre is used to denote unison playing. That is, in a score with repeats, the first time through a lead drummer plays everything, while the corps members pop in and out for effect. That's denoted in the score using a bracket above the sections where everyone would be playing on the first time through.

This is an example via Lime: ... t-2004.pdf

Anyone know a way to do that in ABC or one of the interpreters?

Thank you.

I see there were no answers for you. Perhaps you should try asking the same question at the abcusers forum here:-
