I'm working on the first group of "missing" LilyPond Tab features and it pertains to finger bends. I expect this to be a slow process. We have two (or maybe three) individuals who have expressed interest in joining the discussion, so when I have something, I'll send it out to those individuals for discussion. Every once in a while, we can post something to the main -user list, to maintain some visibility and maybe alert new users who may be interested.

How should the default tablature displayed?

I use this:
\override TabStaff.Stem #'transparent = ##t %% Makes stems transparent
\override TabStaff.Beam #'transparent = ##t %% Makes beams transparent
\override TabStaff.Dots #'transparent = ##t

To make stems, beams and dots invisible. Should that be the default of tablature in Lilypond? If so then there should be a way to add those stems, beams and dots isn't?

Another 'problem' are the slurs in tablature. I think you have to use \tag now to make them invisible, which is pretty time consuming...

And polyphony? Should that be changed?

And what about an more modern font for tablature? Should it be the default?
for example:

And dead notes (note with a x) are they possible with lilypond?



When I open tuxguitar I see some other features for guitar and/ or bass. I dunno if they are in Lilypond:

tremolo bar
tremolo picking
P.M. Palm Mute
T (tapping)
S (slapping)
P (popping)
