Use \once \set chordChanges = ##f at the location where you want to force the chord symbol. \score { << \new ChordNames { \set chordChanges = ##t \chordmode { \repeat volta 2 {g1} \alternative { {c} {\once \set chordChanges = ##f c4 g c c} } } } \new Voice = "one" { \relative c'' { ...

I've stumbled up on the answer to my own question. Either of the following should work: \set restNumberThreshold = #1000 % Some large number \override MultiMeasureRestNumber #'stencil = ##f The first is a bit hackish and not very robust (it sets the number of rests required to display the number extremely high), but the second may have unintended ...

Please read the magnificent documentation at lilypond.org specifically: http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.17/Documentation/usage/command_002dline-usage music.ly: #(use-modules (guile-user)) #(format #t "Using style sheet: ~a\n" style-sheet) \include #style-sheet \relative { c' d e } style-default.ily: % style defs Then run, lilypond -e '(define-public ...

Leaving out the number is an approach I have never seen in classical orchestral scores. Typically the last tutti note has a fermata, followed by a one-bar rest also having a fermata above the text "Cadenza". Of course, this leaves open, when to start again, which is the reason, why classical cadenzas end with a trill to be easily recognized. In smaller ...

You can both load definitions that change the input name of notes (e.g. the German style definition changes the input syntax for a 'b' to 'h') and apply automatic transpositions (\transpose c e {...}). Between those two features, you should be able to notate anything in any way you want.

Yes, you're right - you must declare the variable before using it. Hope this helps: verseText = "Verse" verseNotes = \relative c' { d8^\markup { \verseText } d d d16 d d8 a r4 | cis8 cis cis cis16 cis cis8 a r4 | } verseSection = \relative c' { \repeat volta 2 { \verseNotes } gis'1 | ...

The Bar Numbers and Rehearsal Marks segments of the documentation indicate how to do this: c1 | c1 | c1 | c1 %location where music has been elided % I'd do something like: s1^"2nd Movement Deleted" | s1 | s1 | s1 \break % which inserts a line of blank bars, with a comment above % indicating what has been removed %reset the bar-number counter to the ...

You have to specify the property tupletSpannerDuration to get several tuplets using only one \times command: \set tupletSpannerDuration = #(ly:make-moment 1 8) \times 2/3 {c16 d e d e f } See LilyPond Documentation for more on this.

Just after posting, I found the answer to my own question in the Lilypond Documentation. For version 2.16 (which I'm using): In addition, you can specify "||:", which is equivalent to "|:" except at line breaks, where it gives a double bar line at the end of the line and a start repeat at the beginning of the next line. so one would write: ...

Taken from the link in user6456's answer are 2 links, comparing the old \partcombine with the new one: Old: http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.0/Documentation/user/out-www/lilypond/Automatic-part-combining.html#Automatic%20part%20combining New: ...

I think that your problem isn't intrinsically with the triplets, but rather with controlling beams; one approach is to manually set the beams: Running lilypond 2.16 on { \times 2/3 {c16^"Two 3-note phrases" d e } \times 2/3 { d e f } r4 r2 \times 2/3 { c16^"Manual Beaming" [d e] d [e f] } r4 r2 \set tupletSpannerDuration = #(ly:make-moment 1 8) \times ...

After some great help from SuperMusicman, I finally got it to work and I believe, this is the most actual syntax for the snippet from my question. \score { << \new StaffGroup << \new Staff \with { midiInstrument = #"violin" instrumentName = \markup { \column { "Violini I" ...

Maybe adapting the "Isolated percent repeats" snippet may help: just replace the whole note by a longa: makePercent = #(define-music-function (parser location note) (ly:music?) "Make a percent repeat the same length as NOTE." (make-music 'PercentEvent 'length (ly:music-length note))) \relative c'' { c1 | ...
