# lilypond: Odd horizontal spacing with two voices

In the example below I get an unwanted large horizontal gap between the d and the c. I think it has to do with a conflict between \voiceOne an \voiceTwo, because alone they are typeset properly.

Maybe it is a simple thing, that I've overlooked?

``````\version "2.19.82"

voiceGrundbass = \relative c {
\override Stem.direction = #'DOWN
\omit Stem
\set fontSize = -3
s1 g4
}

bassLine =  \relative c' {
\set fingeringOrientations = #'(right)
\clef "bass"
<f,-1>1
\set fingeringOrientations = #'(left)
<d-5>
\set fingeringOrientations = #'(right)
<c-1>
<c-1>
}

fb = \figuremode {s1 <6 4 3>1 }

% The score definition
\score {
\new PianoStaff \with {
\override BassFigure.font-size = -2
}
<<
\context Staff = "1" \with {
}
<<
\time 8/1
\new Voice= "1" { \voiceTwo \bassLine }
\new Voice= "2" { \voiceOne \voiceGrundbass }
\fb
>>
>>
\layout {
\context {
\Staff
skipBars = ##t
\remove "Bar_number_engraver"
\remove "Stem_engraver"
}
}
}
``````

Change your code for the Grundbass, by adding `*4`, to the note `g4`. This scales the duration value (and hence spacing) of the note (but not the note symbol).

That piece of the code will now look something like this:

``````voiceGrundbass = \relative c {
\omit Stem
\set fontSize = -3
s1 g4*4
}
``````

This gets rid of the large space between the D and C:

It still looks a little unbalanced, but this is just because of the figures on either side of the notes; the notes are now equally spaced horizontally.
