Añadir digitaciones a la partitura

Se pueden escribir instrucciones de digitación usando una sintaxis muy sencilla.

\relative c'' {
  c4-1 d-2 f-4 e-3
}

Añadir digitaciones a las tablaturas

Para añadir digitaciones a las tablaturas, utilice una combinación de \markup y \finger.

one = \markup { \finger 1 }
two = \markup { \finger 2 }
threeTwo = \markup {
  \override #'(baseline-skip . 2)
  \column {
    \finger 3
    \finger 2
  }
}
threeFour = \markup {
  \override #'(baseline-skip . 2)
  \column {
    \finger 3
    \finger 4
  }
}

\score {
  \new TabStaff {
    \tabFullNotation
    \stemUp
    e8\4^\one b\2 <g\3 e'\1>^>[ b\2 e\4]
    <a\3 fis'\1>^>^\threeTwo[ b\2 e\4]
  }
}

Adding markups in a tablature

By default markups does not show in a tablature.

To make them appear, simply use the command \revert TabStaff.TextScript.stencil

Permitir que las digitaciones se impriman dentro del pentagrama

Las cifras de digitación orientadas verticalmente se colocan de forma predeterminada fuera del pentagrama. Sin embargo, este comportamiento se puede cancelar. Hay que prestar atención en situaciones en las que las digitaciones y las plicas están en la misma dirección: por defecto, las digitaciones solo evitan la colisión con plicas unidas por una barra. Se puede cambiar este ajuste para no evitar ninguna plica o evitarlas todas; el ejemplo siguiente muestra las dos copciones, así como la manera de volver al comportamiento predeteminado.

\relative c' {
  <c-1 e-2 g-3 b-5>2
  \override Fingering.staff-padding = #'()
  <c-1 e-2 g-3 b-5>4 g'-0
  a8[-1 b]-2 g-0 r
  \override Fingering.add-stem-support = ##f
  a[-1 b]-2 g-0 r
  \override Fingering.add-stem-support = ##t
  a[-1 b]-2 g-0 r
  \override Fingering.add-stem-support = #only-if-beamed
  a[-1 b]-2 g-0 r
}

Barres in automatic fretboards

When automatic fretboards are used, barre indicators will be drawn whenever one finger is responsible for multiple strings.

If no finger indications are given in the chord from which the automatic fretboard is created, no barre indicators will be included, because there is no way to identify where barres should be placed.

\new FretBoards {
  <f,-1 c-3 f-4 a-2 c'-1 f'-1>1
  <f, c f a c' f'>1
}

Modificar la orientación de los trastes

Los diagramas de posiciones de acordes se pueden orientar de tres formas. De manera predeterminada se alinena la cuerda o traste superior en las distintas alineaciones.

\include "predefined-guitar-fretboards.ly"

<<
  \chords {
    c1
    c1
    c1
  }
  \new FretBoards {
    \chordmode {
      c1
      \override FretBoard.fret-diagram-details.orientation =
        #'landscape
      c1
      \override FretBoard.fret-diagram-details.orientation =
        #'opposing-landscape
      c1
    }
  }
  \new Voice {
    c'1

    c'
  }

Glissando de acordes en tablatura

Los deslizamientos para acordes se indican por omisión tanto en el contexto Staff como en TabStaff. Los números de cuerda son necesarios para TabStaff porque los cálculos de cuerda automáticos son diferentes para los acordes y para notas sueltas.

myMusic = \relative c' {
  <c e g>1 \glissando <f a c>
}

\score {
  <<
    \new Staff {
      \clef "treble_8"
      \myMusic
    }
    \new TabStaff \myMusic
  >>
}

\score {
  <<
    \new Staff {
      \clef "treble_8"
      \myMusic
    }
    \new TabStaff \with { \override Glissando.style = #'none } {
      \myMusic
    }

Cambios de acorde de posiciones de trastes

Se puede hacer que los diagramas de posiciones se muestren sólo cuando el acorde cambia o al comienzo de una nueva línea.

\include "predefined-guitar-fretboards.ly"

  c1 c1 \break
  \set chordChanges = ##t
  c1 c1 \break

Chords with stretched fingering for FretBoards and TabVoice

Sometimes chords with a stretched fingering are required. If not otherwise specified the context-property maximumFretStretch is set to 4, though. Resulting in a warning about "No string for pitch ..." and the note is omitted. You may set maximumFretStretch to an approppriate value or explecitely assign string-numbers to all notes of a chord.

%% The code below will print two warnings, which may be omitted by uncommenting:
%#(for-each (lambda (x) (ly:expect-warning "No string for pitch")) (iota 2))

mus = {
  <c' bes'>
  <c'\2 bes'>
  \set maximumFretStretch = 5
  <c' bes'>
  <c'\2 bes'\1>
}

<<
  \new FretBoards \mus
  \new TabVoice \mus

Controlar la colocación de las digitaciones de acordes

Se puede controlar con precisión la colocación de los números de digitación. Para que se tenga en cuenta la orientación de las digitaciones, se debe utilizar dentro de una construcción de acorde <> aunque sea una sola nota. Se puede establecer la orientación para los números de cuerda y las digitaciones de la mano derecha de una forma similar.

\relative c' {
  \set fingeringOrientations = #'(left)
  <c-1 e-3 a-5>4
  \set fingeringOrientations = #'(down)
  <c-1 e-3 a-5>4
  \set fingeringOrientations = #'(down right up)
  <c-1 e-3 a-5>4
  \set fingeringOrientations = #'(up)
  <c-1 e-3 a-5>4
  \set fingeringOrientations = #'(left)
  <c-1>2
  \set fingeringOrientations = #'(down)
  <e-3>2
  \set stringNumberOrientations = #'(up left down)
  <f\3 a\2 c\1>1
  \set strokeFingerOrientations = #'(down right up)
  <c\rightHandFinger #1 e\rightHandFinger #2 c'\rightHandFinger #4 >

Personalizar los diagramas de posiciones

Se pueden establecer las propiedades de los diagramas de posiciones de acordes por medio de 'fret-diagram-details. Para los diagramas de posiciones de FretBoard, se aplican los overrides (sobreescrituras) al objeto FretBoards.FretBoard. Como Voice, FretBoards es un contexto del nivel inferior, y por tanto se puede omitir su nombre en la sobreescritura de propiedades.

Definición de posiciones predefinidas para otros instrumentos

Se pueden añadir diagramas de posiciones predefinidas para instrumentos nuevos además de los estándar que se usan para la guitarra. Este archivo muestra cómo se hace, definiendo una afinación nueva y unas cuantas posiciones para el cuatro venezolano.

Este archivo también muestra cómo se pueden incluir las digitaciones en los acordes que se usan como puntos de referencia para la búsqueda de acordes en la tabla, y mostrarse en el diagrama de posiciones y la tablatura TabStaff, pero no en la música.

Estas posiciones no se pueden transportar porque contienen información de las cuerdas. Hay planes para corregir esto en un futuro.

Notación del flamenco

Para la guitarra flamenca se utilizan ciertos elementos de notación especiales:

Casi todas las figuras utilizan flechas combinadas con digitaciones; con los abanicos y los rasgueados, las notas se imprimen con cabeza sólo en el primer acorde.

Este fragmento de código contiene código de tipo cabecera que se puede copiar como ‘flamenco.ly’ e incluirse en los documentos fuente.

%%%%%%%  Cut here ----- Start 'flamenco.ly'

% Text indicators :
abanico = ^\markup\small { \italic Abanico }
rasgueado = ^\markup\small { \italic Ras. }
alzapua = ^\markup\small { \italic Alzapua }

% Finger stroke symbols :
strokeUp = \markup\combine\override #'(thickness . 1.3) \draw-line #'(0 . 2)\raise #2 \arrow-head #Y #UP ##f
strokeDown = \markup\combine\arrow-head #Y #DOWN ##f \override #'(thickness . 1.3) \draw-line #'(0 . 2)

% Golpe symbol :

Tablas alternativas de diagramas de posiciones

Se pueden crear tablas alternativas de diagramas de posiciones. Se utilizarían para tener diagramas altenativos para un acorde dado.

Para usar una tabla alternativa de diagramas de posiciones, se debe crear la tabla primero. Después se añaden los diagramas a la tabla.

La tabla de diagramas de posiciones que se crea puede estar vacía o se puede copiar a partir de una tabla existente.

La tabla a usar en la impresión de los diagramas predefinidos se selecciona por medio de la propiedad \predefinedDiagramTable.

Ligaduras de guitarra

A diferencia de los glissandos, los ‘slides’ o ligaduras pueden partir de un punto impreciso del mástil hasta un traste específico. Una buena forma de hacerlo es añadir una nota de mordente oculta antes de la nota real, como se muestra en el ejemplo siguiente.

%% Hide fret number: useful to draw slide into/from a casual point of
%% the fretboard.
hideFretNumber = {
  \once \hide TabNoteHead
  \once \hide NoteHead
  \once \hide Stem
  \once \override NoteHead.no-ledgers = ##t
  \once \override Glissando.bound-details.left.padding = #0.3
}

Hammer on and pull off using chords

When using hammer-on or pull-off with chorded notes, only a single arc is drawn. However “double arcs” are possible by setting the doubleSlurs property to #t.

\new TabStaff {
  \relative c' {
    % chord hammer-on and pull-off
    \set doubleSlurs = ##t
    <g' b>8( <a c> <g b>)
  }
}

[image of music]


Hammer on and pull off using voices

The arc of hammer-on and pull-off is upwards in voices one and three and downwards in voices two and four:

\new TabStaff {
  \relative c' {
    << { \voiceOne g2( a) }
    \\ { \voiceTwo a,( b) }
    >> \oneVoice
  }
}

Hammer-on and pull-off can be obtained using slurs.

  \relative c' {
    d4( e\2)

Cómo cambiar la posicion de un diagrama de posiciones

Si queremos mover un diagrama de posiciones de acorde, por ejemplo, para evitar la colisión, o situarlo entre dos notas, tenemos varias posibilidades:

1) modificar los valores de relleno #’padding o del desplazamiento adicional #’extra-offset (como se muestra en el primer ejemplo)

2) podemos añadir una voz invisible y adjuntar los diagramas de posiciones a las notas invisibles de esa voz (como se ve en el segundo ejemplo).

Si tenemos que mover el diagrama según una posición rítmica dentro del compás (en el ejemplo, la tercera parte del compás) es mejor el segundo ejemplo, porque el diagrama se alinea con el tercer pulso por sí solo.

harmonies = \chordmode
{
  a8:13
% THE FOLLOWING IS THE COMMAND TO MOVE THE CHORD NAME
  \once \override ChordNames.ChordName.extra-offset = #'(10 . 0)
  b8:13 s2.
% THIS LINE IS THE SECOND METHOD

upper = \relative c' {
  \time 12/8
  \key e \minor
  \voiceOne
  r4. r8 e, fis g16 b g e e' b c b a g fis e
}

lower = \relative c {
  \key e \minor
  \voiceTwo
  r16 e d c b a g4 fis8 e fis g a b c
}

\score {
  <<
    \new StaffGroup = "tab with traditional" <<
      \new Staff = "guitar traditional" <<
        \clef "treble_8"
        \new Voice = "upper" \upper
        \new Voice = "lower" \lower
      >>
      \new TabStaff = "guitar tab" <<
        \new TabVoice = "upper" \upper
        \new TabVoice = "lower" \lower
      >>
    >>
  >>
}

Deslizamientos en tablatura

Los deslizamientos se pueden componer tipográficamente tanto en los contextos de Staff como en los de TabStaff:

slides = {
  c'8\3(\glissando d'8\3)
  c'8\3\glissando d'8\3
  \hideNotes
  \grace { g16\glissando }
  \unHideNotes
  c'4\3
  \afterGrace d'4\3\glissando {
  \stemDown \hideNotes
  g16 }
  \unHideNotes
}

\score {
  <<
    \new Staff { \clef "treble_8" \slides }
    \new TabStaff { \slides }
  >>
  \layout {
    \context {
      \Score
      \override Glissando.minimum-length = #4
      \override Glissando.springs-and-rods =
                          #ly:spanner::set-spacing-rods
      \override Glissando.thickness = #2
      \omit StringNumber
      % or:
      %\override StringNumber.stencil = ##f
    }
  }
}

Comportamiento de las plicas y las barras de corchea en tablaturas

La dirección de las plicas se controla de la misma forma en la tablatura que en la notación tradicional. Las barras se pueden poner horizontales, como se muestra en este ejemplo.

\new TabStaff {
  \relative c {
    \tabFullNotation
    g16 b d g b d g b
    \stemDown
    \override Beam.concaveness = #10000
    g,,16 b d g b d g b
  }
}

Líneas de extensión para números de cuerda

Hacemos una línea extensora para las indicaciones de número de cuerda, motrando que una serie de notas se han de tocar sobre la misma cuerda.

stringNumberSpanner =
  #(define-music-function (StringNumber) (string?)
    #{
      \override TextSpanner.style = #'solid
      \override TextSpanner.font-size = #-5
      \override TextSpanner.bound-details.left.stencil-align-dir-y = #CENTER
      \override TextSpanner.bound-details.left.text =
        \markup { \circle \number $StringNumber }
    #})


\relative c {
  \clef "treble_8"
  \stringNumberSpanner "5"
  \textSpannerDown
  a8\startTextSpan
  b c d e f\stopTextSpan
  \stringNumberSpanner "4"
  g\startTextSpan a
  bes4 a g2\stopTextSpan
}
