## printing a tiny pianostaff at the beginning of a score

 I'd like to leave some indications (rythmic, mostly) for bass and guitar at the start of a piece. Right now I'm doing this with a pencil, but I'm wondering how to do it with lilypond. It could be a smaller PianoStaff, on a line by itself. How could this be done ? Thanks in advance --strk;

Can you provide a small image of what you want to achieve? Then I'm sure some of the helpful folks on this list will be able to lend you a hand. Best Lukas

What happens if I prepend that staff to the rest of the lead sheet, which starts with:   leadSheet = {     <<       \new ChordNames {         \harmony       }       ..... Is that the new Staff continues instead of being interrupted. I'd want it completely detached instead (and smaller). Nice one, line-count, but I think I can deal with full staff as well. --strk;

I repeat: "You can use that inside of a \score markup if necessary". \header {   composer = "myself"   title = "Hark" } \score {   \header {     piece = \markup \score {       \new Staff \with { \override StaffSymbol.line-count = #1                          \omit Clef                          \omit KeySignature                          \omit TimeSignature                          \omit LedgerLineSpanner                          \omit BarLine                          instrumentName = \markup \column { Gtr Bas }                        }       << { \stemUp r4 r r d'' } \\ { \stemDown g'4 r8 g' g'4 r } >>       \layout { #(layout-set-staff-size 14) }     }     composer = "myself"   }   <<     \chords { c1 }     \new Staff { c'1 }     \addlyrics { Om. }   >> } -- David Kastrup My replies have a tendency to cause friction.  To help mitigating damage, feel free to forward problematic posts to me adding a subject like "timeout 1d" (for a suggested timeout of 1 day) or "offensive".
