## grace note, first note

 From: Stan Sanderson Subject: grace note, first note Date: Wed, 26 Nov 2003 13:48:06 -0600

```New Lilypond user, four pieces coded, contributed to Mutopia.

I'm using v2.0.1, loaded through Fink on Mac )S 10.2.8.

```
I have a piano score which I'm trying to code. It begins with a grace note. The resulting output shows the effect (I'm presuming) of the grace note not being counted with the main note's value.
```
```
I've looked in the archives but haven't found an answer (at least one which i understand). I've tried a number of things, including adding a partial measure with spaces at the beginning. The bar line which accompanies this is aesthetically unappealing. I tried suppressing the bar line(s) but alignment was disrupted.
```
Is there a simple solution?

A brief sample follows:

\version "2.0.1"
\include "paper16.ly"
\include "nederlands.ly"
Global = \notes {\key g\major \time 3/4}

TOP = \notes \relative c''  {
<<  \scriptUp {  r4 a a} \\
\scriptDown  { \grace cis,8 d2.} >>
}

BOT = \notes \relative c {
r4 <d c'> <d c'>
}

\score {\notes {
\context PianoStaff <<
\context Staff = "up" <<
\Global \clef treble
\context Voice=VoiceI \TOP
>>
\context Staff = "down" <<
\Global \clef bass
\context Voice=VoiceI \BOT
>>
>>
}
\paper { raggedright = ##t }

}

Thanks!

Stan
