Thanks Martin. I was just joking. Sounds like a fiddler out there put his own thing in the tune. Thanks for the real thing. :)

Heh, I got the joke this time Mark!  ;D :P

There is a relevant point here though, in all seriousness.

This segment of the tune illustrates that rhythm is as important to a tune as the notes, if not more so - and Jack's magic music machine needs to allow for that.

This "computer generating music thread" got me thinking about a question i started thinking about years ago but was never able to come up with an answer.  I was wondering if a computer could be programed to find the beat of a tune based on melody alone and then I started wondering how we humans even do it.  That might sound like a dumb question at first but think about it for a second.  Lets say you walked into a room and a computer was playing a fiddle tune - you never heard the begining of the tune.  Say it is the program at concertina.net that we have been using.  That program pays no attention to the bar lines and does not accent any notes.  All of the timing comes from the length of the note only.  The rythm header and time signiture header are not used in playing the tune either they are for the score only.  So you are listening to this tune and the computer is not adding any accents, there is no drums, no nothing to produce a beat but we still hear one.  Where does it come from?  Could someone write a program that would take an abc file with no bar lines and have the computer add them in the correct spot.  I wouldn't have a clue where to start that one, but I can tap my foot at the begining of every bar.

That question is sizzling my head Floyd. When I have a headache tomorrow, I'll blame you. Excellent question. I don't think there is an easy answer.
