Re: Clef design comparision

I sometimes copy clef shapes I like.
Here are some examples:

By the way, when I copied the Henle clef I was surprised by the poor quality of the original drawing:

Re: [Tutorial] Flat slurs in Inkscape

[...] Here is another video, using only one reference point(s). It is not exactly flat, but very flatened, probably impossible to get it in Sibelius or Finale, (Lilypond?). [...] No, with LilyPond one can change slurs shape using simple tweaks but it won't be flat: slur-tweak.png On the other hand,...

Re: [Lilypond] Numerous Questions & Thoughts

With no surprise, I agree 100% with what Tisimst wrote. ;) I also confirm that, from discussions I had last year with publishers at the http://www.musicora.com/en , most (all?) of them uses Finale and Sibelius and have no interest to use LilyPond. And, yes, LilyPond's weakest point is definitely the...

Re: Ottavation numbers attached to clefs

[...] A guitar solo on two staves, bass and treble. Interesting. We just had a discussion of double-staffing a solo violin piece.[...] Yep, this is particular to Dyens, although Sor's recommendations was to write guitar scores with 3 clefs! sorf-op7.png [...] I was also confused by the pizz. markin...

Fingerings

Hi, As an answer to this post: http://www.notat.io/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=42&p=639#p639 [...] It would not be common practice now to put the fingering on the staff in a keyboard solo. The numbers would be placed above or below the staff in the white spaces. All publishers adhere to this principle, beca...

Re: Ottavation numbers attached to clefs

PIerre, the clef looks fine. [...] Great :) [...] I am confused by the pizz. markings. What is the instrumentation? [...] For guitar solo, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDxcfnoPnBM [...] Also, is it traditional in the guitar literature to put the fingering on the staff as you have it? I woul...

Re: Lilypond

Hi NicholasG, Nicely done! ;) My question is, how long did it take to create SlippySurface in LP? [...] What took me some time was to create a code that define a curved staff-line (named 'split-staff'). The rest was done pretty quickly. Let say, one hour, maybe two for the whole score (honestly, I d...
