### Chorded notes

I have a score for some of my Liturgical Music I am working on, & need the bass to have a C (2nd space-bass clef) quarter note, and two eighth note C's (the first 2nd space, and the second, middle C) to show to options for the bass which then continues over the next few measures with octave bass lines. How do I achieve this? I looked in the manuals, but so far I have not found any references to this situation. Thanks.

### Re: extra spacing between staves and verses

Greetings Keith,
Thanks for the comment. Do you have a special crystal ball there?

Do you know if there is any particular reason why inter-system spacings
are done in the \paper block but spacing between staves is dealt with
using commands in the \Staff context (Have I got the terminology correct!?)

In my innocence I thought that setting the latter in a 'global'
definition would be the way to go.
Or is it because some users prefer to control individual staff spacing
on a case by case basis... ?

If you have anything to do with the docs for this aspect of LP could you
add to the 'selected snippets' section - the two snippets there don't,
to my mind, make the spacing issue particularly clear...

Regards
Bill

Does this

\version "2.13.37"
{
\clef bass
e << { \voiceTwo c, } \\ { \voiceOne c,8 c } >> \oneVoice f4
}

produce the output you desire or do you need something more specific?

cheers,
Janek

### showFirstLength problem

Hello,
I'm checking the title page layout of my overture. I tried to use
showFirstLength = R1
but the log says syntax error. Where must I place the string? I use 2 bookparts, in the second one there goes the music, and the first one for unnumbered 2 title pages.
Regards
Haipeng

### Re: markup fromproperty footer

Hello Michael,

>> If I could extent that to the scope of the current typesetted score, it might do what I want.
>>
>
I want to read the score-header on a level - the footer - that is the
"global" bookpart-level.
So I want score-header-fields to appear in the footer. In the following
snippet the piece-field is not readable in the footerMarkup. My question

Best regards,
Jan-Peter

\version "2.12.3"

\paper {
oddFooterMarkup = \markup { \fill-line {
\concat { \fromproperty #'header:composer ", " \bold
\fromproperty #'page:page-number-string
}
}
evenFooterMarkup = \markup { \fill-line {
\fromproperty #'page:page-number-string
\concat { \fromproperty #'header:composer ", " \bold
}
}
}

\bookpart {
title = "title"
composer = "composer"
piece = "*"
}

\score {
\relative c' {
c d e f
}
piece = "first"
}
}
\score {
\relative c' {
c d e f
}
piece = "second"
}
}
}

Greetings Haipeng,
showFirstLength is a LilyPond variable: you have to define it at the
"top-level", not in any \book,\bookpart or \score block. (just like
\version, for example).

Good luck!

Valentin.

Good day,
Could someone please tell me ho to change the vertical position of the /textSpanner ?

Best regards,

### more vertical positioning

How can I move other objects? I would like, for example to move dynamic symbols and text into the system itself. I know how to move text around within a markup with /lower and /hspace , but not through other objects.  There is probably a section of the notation reference I need to read, but I am not sure which...

Stephan

### Re: Question on creating an "ossia" with different times?

Hi James,

Thanks for pointing out. I upgraded now and I took a look in the new
learning manual. You are right, once in a while one has to re-read
(parts of) the documentation although you might think you know it all,
and I didn't. Apologies.

I found clues on how to run the different \time commands in different
staves and take out the Timing_translator. But somehow I'm drifting
away from what I had in mind. Now I'm trying to find a way to
verticall align notes and the bar lines, because reading it now is
also no fun.

The sample below is how far I got untill now.

Regards,
Wim van Dommelen.

P.S. The alignment of the two small ossia's staffs themselves can
probably be done with a context, but I'm not there yet.

------ sample code: -----------------------------------------

\version "2.12.3"

\paper {
#(set-paper-size "a4")
#(define dump-extents #t)
indent = 0\mm
}

\book {
\score {
\new Staff = "main" {
\override Staff.TimeSignature #'style = #'()
\override Score.BarNumber #'break-visibility = #end-of-line-
invisible
\clef violin
\key d \major
\relative c' {
\time 3/2
c c d d es es |
e e fis fis
<<
{ g g | }
\new Staff = "ossia" \with {
alignAboveContext = #"main"
firstClef = ##f
}
{ \time 3/4 g4 g r | }
>>
\time 1/4
r |
\time 4/2
c, c d d es es
<<
{ e e | }
\new Staff = "ossia" \with {
alignAboveContext = #"main"
firstClef = ##f
}
{ \time 3/4 e!4 e r | }
>>
\time 1/4
r |
\time 3/2
r c d d es es |
}
\bar "|."
}
\layout {
\context {
\Score
\remove "Timing_translator"
\remove "Default_bar_line_engraver"
}
\context {
\Staff
\consists "Timing_translator"
\consists "Default_bar_line_engraver"
}
}
}
}
