What's the best way to write down an Old-Time breakdown with the structure ABBACD in sheet music?

I would use repeats for the B section, then repeat the A section and Coda to C & D sections.  Shouldn't be too hard in Tabledit, or any other notation software.

Thanks. I use Tabledit. What should the reading list look like?

Without the notation, I don't know the measure numbers, but it should play from the start:



A section through B section



repeat the B section



go back to the A section



skip to the C section and play to the end.



 



Hope this helps.

My attempt at notation is attached. My reading list is 1-16, 9-16, 1-8, 17-32.

Looks like it should be right.  Does it sound right on playback?  That will tell you if it is correct.
