Displaying an empty staff

Stemby
Hi,
I'm trying to type a continuous bass part.

\book {

  \score {

    \new GrandStaff <<

      \new Staff { }

      \new Staff { \mybass }

    >>

    \layout { }

  }

}


What can I do for displaying the empty staff? In this way the player can write by hand on the score.


Thank you!


Carlo

Use spacer rests in the staff where you want the hand-written answer.

Thank you!

However in this way I have to calculate the number of empty staves.

Isn't there an automatic behaviour?

Thanks!

Carlo

Carlo,

Could you duplicate the part (call \myBass a second time), but turn off the engravers that would display the notation itself? I don't have the code to do this handy, but that is what comes to mind to make thing work "automatically."

Regards,
Carl

Maybe it's just an issue of wording, but you don't have to calculate the number of staves but the length of the music.

s1 will keep the staff alive for one whole note (or a 4/4 measure). Your empty staff would have to be populated with spacer rests of the same length as the piece.

Yes, that could be the best solution!

Thank you!

Yes, sorry, I meant the number of bars.

Thanks!

\new Staff { $(skip-of-length mybass) }

Great! That's perfect.

Thank you very much, David.
