A D.C. al Coda is go to the begining play to the coda-Oval with a cross in it- the skip to the second coda.A D.S. al Coda is the same only you go back to S sign-S with a line thru and to dots onthe side.
Da Capo- means "from the beginning." al is actually a contraction of a+el (like Spanish, although the term is Italian...both are Latin derivatives) which means "to the." Capo means "tail" which is the ending section of a piece. So, you play "from the beginning" skipping "to the coda."
actually, dc is derived from the latin 'dee cee' which means, 'to poop' and al coda is just the guy that made up the definition of dc, so there you have it: to poop Al Coda.
