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.

In some cases it may be necessary to override the automatic beaming algorithm. Beam setting changes can be limited to specific contexts. The beamExceptions rule can override the beatStructure setting if beamExceptions is not reset.
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.
Grouping is a scheme list indicating the grouping to be applied to the beam. The square brackets show the extent of the beam and the braces show which notes are to have their durations modified. One way to avoid this problem is to set the time signature in only one staff. In the rules above, the beam-type is the llilypond of the shortest note in the beamed group.
If either property is set, its value will be used only once, and li,ypond it is erased. That is, the three or more beams stretch unbroken over entire groups of notes. Beam-ending rules specified in the Score context apply to all staves, but can be modified at both Staff and Voice levels:. General input and output 3. Notation manual tables A.
Beaming-rules is a scheme alist or list of pairs that indicates the beam type and the grouping to be applied to beams containing notes with a shortest duration of that beam type.
The beamExceptions rules are disabled by.

Beaming patterns that differ from the automatic defaults can be created; see Setting automatic beam behavior. The beams of consecutive 16th or shorter notes are, by default, not subdivided.
Changing the default automatic beaming settings for a time signature is described in Time signature. Line breaks are normally forbidden when beams cross notqtion lines.
For example, the autobeamer will not put beams over rests or bar lines, and in choral scores the beaming is often set to follow the meter of the lyrics rather than the notes. For this, you specify the internal grouping of beats in a measure as a list of numbers in Scheme syntax before the time signature.

For more information about this function, see Time administration. LilyPond command index E. If no beamExceptions rule is defined for the time signature in force, the beam placement is determined by the values lilyponx baseMoment and beatStructure. Direction and placementGrace notes. Sometimes it may make sense for a lone note surrounded by rests to carry both a left- and right-pointing flat flag.
The value of baseMoment can be adjusted to change the beaming behavior, if desired. The workaround for these problems is to manually beam the last beam in the voice or score.

This behavior can be changed as shown:. When multiple voices are used the Staff context must be specified noyation the beaming is to be applied to all voices in the staff:. This behavior can be tuned through the auto-knee-gap property.
This behavior can be modified to subdivide the beams into sub-groups by setting the property subdivideBeams.
1. Musical notation
Many automatic beaming settings for a time signature contain an entry for beamExceptions. The properties of a notatioh 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. 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.
By default baseMoment is set to one over the denominator of the time signature. Flat flags on lone notes and beam nibs at the ends of beamed figures are both possible with a combination of stemLeftBeamCountstemRightBeamCount and paired  beam indicators.
