Are there musical cases where you can have more beats in a bar than the time signature indicates?


Other special cases can be done with \partial.


Benjamin Britten occasionally used double meters -- say, a piece that changes between 3/4 and 2/4 on every single bar. These are notated with a 3/4 2/4 at the beginning of the piece, but nothing in the rest of the piece. We can do this in lilypond via other means.


Other than those examples, I don't think there are any musical cases where you can have more beats in the bar than the time signature indicates.
