Violin Tablature idea

djbrock
I have an idea to rewrite the Tab fingerings for the violin to indicate positions from the standard as opposed to frets (the mandolin is the closest thing I've found to the violin in Lilypond). I have no idea if this can be done. Can anyone tell me what I would have to do to or what file I would edit to make this happen?  How do I get started?

Do you have examples of how this should look like?
Otherwise, it is hard to answer your questions.

Sure. Instead of the fret positions
0 1 2 3 4 5 6  I might have
0 0# 1 1# 2 3 3# 4 - these would be based upon positions rather than frets.  It might also be listed like this
0 .5 1 1.5 2 3 3.5 4

Position 1 matches with fret 2.  Position 2 matches fret 4. Position 3 matches fret 5. Position 4 matches fret 7.  It could also be repeated up the neck for 2nd and 3rd positions, but I'm mostly concerned with the lower position for beginners.

Ah, I see. Please try the following code. Is this close to what you need?

music = \relative f {
   g1 gis a ais b c cis
}

\score {
   <<
     \new Staff {
       \new Voice { \music }
     }
     \new TabStaff \with { tablatureFormat =
#fret-letter-tablature-format } {
       \set TabStaff.fretLabels = \markuplist {"0" "0#" "1" "1#" "2" "3"
"3#" "4"}
       \set TabStaff.stringTunings = #mandolin-tuning
       \new TabVoice { \music }
     }
   >>
}

Regards,

Marc

That is very close.  Only if I comment out the line         \set TabStaff.fretLabels = \markuplist {"0" "0#" "1" "1#" "2" "3" "3#" "4"}
will it compile in Frescobaldi. 
Otherwise I get this error message:

Uh, perhaps \markuplist isn't available in version 2.14.2?
Try \markuplines instead, I think this will do it.

HTH,

I was about to suggest the same, but it raised another error.
But I couldn't find any explanation in the doc about \set TabStaff.fretLabels

Sorry for the late reply – fretLabels is defined since 2.15.17, so you'll
have to use the development version or wait for 2.16.

HTH,

Marc

That seems to have worked! Downloaded 2.15.40.  Thanks. I'll work with it more soon.
