I'm trying to typeset the following snippet. My first idea was to add two voices here but then I would not be able to make a slur between them. Is it possible without using manual placement of notes?

a bit of violin music

Since the lower voice is eighth notes and the upper voice is sixteenth notes, my recommendation would be to use separate voices. Here is one possible solution:

\version "2.19.63"

music = \relative c'' {
  <<
    {
      f16\rest b, e\rest a, 
    }
    \\
    {
      \autoBeamOff
      f8 e
    }
    \\
    {
      \autoBeamOff
      \override NoteColumn.force-hshift = 0
      \hideNotes f16_( b) e,_( a)
    }
  >>
}

\score {
  \new Staff \music
  \layout { }
}

which compiles

enter image description here

Another option would be to put f16 b e, a in a single voice, but change the flags on the lower two pitches to be eighth notes instead of sixteenth notes.

  • Wonderful! That's exactly what I was looking for. Many thanks! – helcim Dec 14 '17 at 17:40
