LilyStick

The goal of the LilyStick project is to provide a note engraver for Lilypond that writes StaffTab(TM) tablatures for the Chapman Stick(R). Head to www.stick.com if you don't know what a Chapman Stick is.

How do I use this?

Check out the included example scores:

lilypond --include=src examples/underground.ly

Basically, all you need to do is include the file stafftab-context-definition.ly and then create a StaffTab containing a StickVoice.

The standard Lilypond markup applies:

  • -3 indicates the third finger

  • \4 indicates the fourth string

Bugs

Probably many.

  • the fingering and string position of tied chords is not cached, so this fails: < b-3\4 e-4\3 >8 ~ < b e > Do this instead: < b-3\4 e-4\3 >8 ~ < b-3\4 e-4\3 >

  • fret positions sometimes collide. Also, they are stacked and are not printed as a horizontal sequence.

  • note heads are not polished yet
