The problem is that this is not a common notation, and the meaning of the symbol "C/Em" is unclear. What Lilypond can do - as you know - is add a letter after a slash, e.g. C/E, which means that you're supposed to play a C major triad with the note E in the bass. What does exist are polychords where two different chords are stacked on top of each other. ...


Notes that are played at the same time are represented at the same horizontal position; another way to say this is that the note indications are "stacked" vertically with respect to one another when the notes are to be played at the same time. In your example tab, none of the notes are played simultaneously. Here's a strummed open E chord (all notes played ...


Study the 5/8 measure and determine the subdivision. Commonly, it'll be 2+3/8 or 3+2/8. For conducting, you'll treat 5/8 like a 6/8 pattern, but dropping the appropriate 8th notes to match the subdivision.


Tab is read from left to right - just like this sentence. If two or more notes on different strings are to be played simultaneously (or several strings strummed), they will be stacked in the same vertical plane. Try to picture an imaginary vertical line moving from left to right across the lines of tab. As this line moves across the tab, it will ...


Like the other answers, I don't know what your notation is supposed to mean, but you can get (almost) anything you want using "chord name exceptions" to define your own markup. To repeat, I have no idea if the notes c e g b are what your chord notation is supposed to mean - but if you only want chord symbols, the notes don't matter much. \version "2.18.2" ...


I guess, I'd just write "(hummed)" instead of (or in addition to) the "mmm" ... That should be clear.


In the DelCamp edition, measure 25 has a C VII above it. The use of a barre at this point isn't just a tone preference; it's required by the notes. The notes are: B (1st string, 7th fret - only place to play this note) F# (2nd, 7th (can't play this at the usual string 1 2nd fret) D# (3rd string, 8th, finger 2, also displaced and so on) B (4th string, ...
