Here's errata for the LM. Some of these are very subjective, so just
pick and choose what seems appropriate. Others are just typos or
examples that aren't showing up.
Thanks for making the LM so nice!
"The plate would be inked, the depressions..."
"The plate would be inked, and the depressions..."
"obvious advantages;" (semicolon)
"obvious advantages:" (colon)
"Our flat symbol is designed after, among others, this one. It is rounded,"
"Our flat symbol is designed after this one, among others."
"The upper two measures are printed with this correction, the lower two
measures without, forming down-stem/up-stem clumps of notes."
"The upper two measures are printed with this correction; the lower two
measures, however, form down-stem/up-stem clumps of notes."
"so nitpicking about typographical details may seem academical."
"so nitpicking typographical details may seem academic."
"If a musician looks away once or has a lapse in concentration, the lines might
lose their place on the page."
"If a musician looks away once or has a lapse in concentration, he/she may
easily lose their place on the page."
"the reader, for example,"
"the reader: for example,"
"without cluttering symbols together"
"without crowding symbols together"
3rd bullet point
"forces a certain method of grouping rules that do not match"
"forces a certain method of grouping rules that does not mesh"
The first lilypond example in this section is missing.
"the rule which note head objects are used to produce their symbol is changed
during the music fragment."
"the rule governing which note head objects are used to produce the note head
symbol is changed during the music fragment."
What symbols to engrave?
"printed, in other words what notation to use."
"printed- in other words, what notation to use."
"Hence, it encompasses"
"Hence, common music notation encompasses"
"monstrous counterpoints for large orchestras."
"monstrous counterpoint for a large orchestra." (comment: referring to
"Gruppen"? If so, then maybe "monstrous textures for multiple orchestras")
"seven-headed beast" (or use a real euphemism, like "complex problem" or
"diverse amount of notational issues")
"we see how we start out with"
"we start out with"
"Then a Staff_symbol_engraver adds the staff"
"Then a Staff_symbol_engraver adds the staff," (add comma)
The third example in this section is missing.
"the Clef_engraver defines a reference point for the staff"
"the Clef_engraver defines a reference point for the staff," (add comma)
"Instead of trying to find an answer, we have reversed the question."
"Instead of trying to find an answer, we have reversed the question:" (I'm not
sure what the reversed form of the question is, but if there is one, it should
be stated here explicitly)
"to create a quarter note C1 (middle C) and an eighth note D1 (D above middle
"to create a quarter note on middle C and an eighth note on D above middle C."
(avoids ambiguities in numbering system altogether in this introductory section)
"and also subject of much discussion."
"and also the subject of much discussion."
B. Scheme tutorial
"chose" to "choose"
2.1.2 Simple notation
"The duration of a note is specified by a number after the note name. 1 for a
whole note, 2 for a half note, 4 for a quarter note and so on."
"The duration of a note is specified by a number after the note name: 1 for a
whole note, 2 for a half note, 4 for a quarter note and so on." (semicolon
before the "1")
2.3.1 Music expressions explained
Simultaneous musical expressions: single staff
"If is a single note"
"If there is a single note" (also: the example that follows this takes a little
while to decipher. Might be nice to briefly describe how this syntax is
related to the excerpt, since the nesting is complex for a beginner.)
2.3.4 Combining notes into chords
The graphic for the last example doesn't show up
2.5.1 Organizing pieces with variables
The graphic for the last example doesn't show up
3.2.1 I'm hearing Voices (great title!)
4th example: graphic doesn't show up
3.2.1 I'm hearing Voices
2nd paragraph from the bottom
"We can correct this simply by missing out voice three and placing the music in
"We can correct this by skipping voice three and placing the music in voice
four. This is done by simply add another pair of \\"
"By default, the outer voices (normally voices one and two) have \shiftOff
Comment: this contradicts the example above it, where voice two is shifted over
in the first beat of m. 2 so that the c doesn't collide with the d.
"When LilyPond interprets the input the musical information is inspected in
time order, similar to reading a score from left to right."
Comment: what is "time order"? How about: "the musical information is parsed
from left to right, similar to the way a performer reads a score."
"For example, the effect of an accidental is limited to a single staff, while a
bar line must be synchronized across the entire score."
"For example, an accidental affects only a single staff, while a bar line must
be synchronized across the entire score."
"We have already met the Voice context."
"We have already introduced the Voice context."
4.1.4 Tweaking methods
"We now must meet some more important commands."
"We must now introduce some more important commands."
"you have met so far."
"you have used so far."
4.2.2 Properties found in interfaces
"Ok, so the \override command we need to print the lyrics in italics should be"
"The \override command needed to print the lyrics in italics is:"
"and this should be placed just in front of and close to the lyrics which it
should affect, like this:"
"This should be placed just in front of the lyrics we wish to affect, like so:"
4.3.1 Visibility and color of objects
"If the context is specified wrongly, the command simply does not work."
"If the context is specified incorrectly, the command simply does not work."
5.1.2 Typesetting existing music
"Enter one manuscript (the physical copy) system at a time"
"Enter the manuscript (the physical copy of the music) into Lilypond one system
at a time"
