Thank you, this is a fantastic suggestion!

For the benefit of others following this thread, on Debian at least, midish comes with a simple command line player, smfplay, which takes a starting measure number as a command line argument.

From the manual (if you use *nix operating systems):

7.1 Moving within the song

The following selects the current position in the song to measure number 3:

g 3

This will make ``p'' and ``r'' commands start at this particular position instead of measure number 0. Furthermore all track editing function will process the track starting at this position.]

Sounds like what you were looking for.

Greetings All,

I should like to piggy-back onto Nathan's question, though as an emacs
user. I have been using timidity, which is directly mentioned in the
documentation, but I too would like the ability to fast-forward or
rewind or to start at a particular place.
