This section explains how to typeset vocal music, and make sure that the lyrics will be aligned with the notes of their melody. \musicglyph glyph-name (string). glyph-name is converted to a musical symbol; for example, \musicglyph #”l” selects the natural sign from the. If these automatic decisions are not satisfactory, beaming can be entered explicitly; see Manual beams. Beams must be entered manually if beams are to be.

If a score ends while an automatic beam has not been ended and is still accepting notes, this last beam will not be typeset at all.

Feathered beams are used to indicate that a small group of notes should be played at an increasing or decreasing tempo, without changing the overall tempo of the piece. For right-pointing nibs at the end of a run of beamed notes, set stemRightBeamCount to a positive value. When beamExceptions is set to ‘either due to an explicit setting or because no beamExceptions rules are defined internally for the refeernce signature in force, the ending points for beams nootation on beats as specified by the context properties baseMoment and beatStructure.

LilyPond command index E. The default beam settings for the time signature can also be changed, so that the desired beaming will always be used.

LilyPond — Notation Reference

The beamExceptions rules are disabled by. For this, you notatuon the internal grouping of beats in a measure as a list of numbers in Scheme syntax before the time signature. By default baseMoment is set to one over the denominator of the time signature.


The properties of a beam are determined at the start of its construction and any additional beam-property changes that occur before the beam has been completed will not take effect until the nextnew beam starts.

The beams of consecutive 16th or shorter notes are, by default, not subdivided.

Unbeamed grace notes are not put into normal note beams. Thus, a time signature setting in a later staff will reset custom beaming that was set in an earlier staff.

The square brackets show the extent of the beam and the braces show which notes are to have their durations modified. A kneed beam is drawn if the gap is larger than the value of auto-knee-gap plus the width of the beam object which depends on the duration of the notes and the slope of the beam. The extent lilpyond the feathered beam must be indicated manually using [ and ]and the beam feathering is turned on by specifying a direction to the Beam property grow-direction.

For right-pointing flat flags on lone notes, use paired [] beam indicators and set stemLeftBeamCount to zero see Example 1. In the following example the eight 16th notes occupy exactly the same time as a half note, but the first note is one half as long as the last one, with the intermediate notes nitation lengthening. We welcome your aid; referrnce help us by reporting errors to our bug list.

By default auto-knee-gap is set to 5. Beams must be entered manually if beams are to be extended over rests. And for left-pointing nibs at the start of a run of beamed notes, set stemLeftBeamCount instead Example 3.

When this is done, the value of beatStructure must be set to be compatible with the new value of baseMoment. For more information about this function, see Time administration. Such beams can be specified manually by marking the begin and end point with [ and ].


When multiple voices are used the Staff context must be specified if the beaming is to be applied to all voices in the staff:. The spacing in the printed output represents the refsrence durations only approximately, but the MIDI output is exact.

In this example, the lillypond f is printed with only one beam on the left side, i. A quantity of type moment is created by the scheme function ly: Sometimes it may make sense for a lone note surrounded by rests to carry both a left- and right-pointing flat flag. Do this with paired [] beam indicators alone Example 4. This page is for LilyPond This behavior is controlled by the context property beamHalfMeasurewhich has effect only in time signatures with 3 in the numerator:.

Many automatic beaming settings for a time signature contain an entry for beamExceptions.

While this may seem cumbersome, it means that the current beaming settings need not be known in order to specify a new beaming pattern.
