Time signatures may also be engraved in an old style.

Sometimes you might want to show the basic beat in the tuplet number text, i.e.
3:2 quarternote, were
quarternote is really a note. The quick and dirty way is to manually set
\override TupletNumber #'text = #(markup #:italic "3:2" #:fontsize -5 #:note "4" 1). However, then you'll have to change it as soon as you want to use a 4/6 tuplet.
The better way is to write your own function for
#'text, which extracts the tuplet fraction from the tuplet object, formats the tuplet text using the internal function and then appends the note you want. In other words, we simply write a function, which wraps the internal formatter function and modified its result:
#(define-public ((tuplet-number::append-note-wrapper function note) grob) (let* ((txt (function grob))) (markup txt #:fontsize -5 #:note note UP)))
You simply pass the
normal formatter function (i.e.
3) and the duration of the note to append:
\override TupletNumber #'text = #(tuplet-number::append-note-wrapper tuplet-number::calc-denominator-text "8")
shapeNoteStyles property can be used to set custom note head styles for each step of the scale (as set by the key signature or the "tonic" property). The note head style you designate for G will also be used for G# and Gb, as in shape note notation.
The method used in this snippet lets you assign custom note heads based on a note's pitch or full name. This allows you to assign different note heads for naturals, sharps, and flats, for example. In this snippet sharp and flat notes are given a square note head shape. [This is based on the snippet "Coloring notes depending on their pitch".]
shapeNoteStyles property can be used to define various note head styles for each step of the scale (as set by the key signature or the
This property requires a set of symbols, which can be purely arbitrary (geometrical expressions such as
xcircle are allowed) or based on old American engraving tradition (some latin note names are also allowed).
That said, to imitate old American song books, there are several predefined note head styles available through shortcut commands such as
This example shows different ways to obtain shape note heads, and demonstrates the ability to transpose a melody without losing the correspondence between harmonic functions and note head styles.
\cadenzaOncan be used. Adjusting the accidental style might be required, since the absence of bar lines will cause the accidental to be marked only once. Here is an example of what could be the start of a hijaz improvisation:
