Subject: Small notes in chords

How can I make some notes of a chord (for example background vocals)
smaller than the lead melody? I know of tweaking the font-size, but I
don't want to do this for every single noteā€¦ Is there an easier way?


You could try using a CueVoice context..this makes the notes in that voice the 
size of..err..well cue notes :)

I'm currently updating the documentation so there is nothing that useful there 
just yet apart from an email or two I have but this snippet might help (I am 
adapting it for the help system)

\relative {
  { e2\rest r4. e8 }
  \new CueVoice
  { \stemUp d'8^"flute" c d e fis2 }
d,4 r a r

Hopefully you get the idea
