glissando problem

Craig Dabelstein
Dear Lilyponders,

I'm typesetting a percussion part where the composer wants a glissando on both sets of bars of the glockenspiel; i.e. all the white notes and all the black notes.

I'm not getting the expected result, which should show two glissandos between each note, one between the two Bb's and one between the two Cb's.

MWE attached. Thanks for any help you could give me.

Craig

What about using chords instead of two voices, and a little bit of tweaking?

\version "2.19.82"
\language english

\score {
  \relative c' {
    \time 6/4
%    \override Glissando.style = #'zigzag
    \override Glissando.minimum-length = #4
    \override Glissando.springs-and-rods = #ly:spanner::set-spacing-rods
    \override Glissando.breakable = ##t
    \override Glissando.after-line-breaking = ##t
    \override Glissando.bound-details.left.padding = #1.5
    \override Glissando.bound-details.right.padding = #1.5
    \override Glissando.bound-details.right.end-on-accidental = ##f
    \override Glissando.bound-details.right-broken.padding = #0.5
 
    % 6 bars of 3 patterns of 2 quarter notes  = 18
    % 1 bar of 2 patterns of 2 quarter notes   = 2
    % and a final pattern without the last glissando

    <>^"Glk. gliss. on both rows of bars"
    \repeat unfold 20 { <bf cf>4 \glissando <bf'' cf> \glissando }
    <bf,, cf>4 \glissando <bf'' cf>
  }
}

Dear Toine,

That's fantastic! Thank you so much. I've been using Lilypond for ages but still so much I don't know.

All the best,

Craig
