... the abcusers mailing list is long established group for discussing abc notation and the software tools to handle it (originally on yahoo, migrated to groups.io December 2020). Since several of the abc software developers subscribe, it is a great place to ask technical questions or start a discussion about issues arising from using the notation.

other venues

As well as usenet groups such rec.music.celtic and rec.music.folk, other places that are good for abc hints and tips, or swapping tunes, are community sites such as thesession.org (mainly Irish & Scottish music) or Mudcat (mainly folk song) where a lot of abc users hang out.
