```OK, I'm replying to myself...

I was able to make it work, by putting the beams in manually:

hh8[ r hh] hh[ r hh] hh[ r hh] hh[ r hh]

Is there any way to make beams like this automatically?

Afraid not, AFAIK.  As you have found, manual beaming is the
only way to place beams over rests.  Although with a commonly
repeated pattern you could define something like

hhrhh = \drummode { hh8 [ r hh ] }

and then use

\drummode { ... \hhrhh \hhrhh \hhrhh \hhrhh ... }

I have the following piece in 12/8:

hh8 r8 hh8  hh8 r8 hh8  hh8 r8 hh8  hh8 r8 hh8

In drum notation this is traditionally grouped with bars as this:

_____    _____    _____    _____ |     |  |     |  |     |  |     |
x  r  x  x  r  x  x  r  x  x  r  x

That is to say, groups of three, with an 8th rest in the middle.

```
I can't seem to get the beams to look like this. I tried the following settings:
```
%%% revert default values in scm/auto-beam.scm regarding 12/8 time
#(revert-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 12 8) 3 8)
#(revert-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 12 8) 3 4)
#(revert-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 12 8) 9 8)
#(revert-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 12 8) 2 1)
#(revert-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 12 8) 1 8)

#(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 12 8) 3 8)
#(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 12 8) 6 8)
#(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 12 8) 9 8)
#(override-auto-beam-setting '(end * * 12 8) 12 8)

```
This works if I have three consecutive 8th notes, but not if I have the rest in the middle.
```
```
Of course, this can also be notated as 4/4 with triplets and a rest in between the triplets, but I see the same thing: no beams.
```
How do I notate this?

Thanks,

Roberto
