Hi Group,

Sometimes I need to put a letter in front of a number as a fingering.
Is there any possibility to declare "m" (for ex;) as a number so that I
could code<a-m1>   as a fingering ?
Do you mean for right hand (stroke) fingering? The following enables
you to use -\A etc for strokefingering. The additional
my-stroke-finger function isn't needed for this but gives better
alignment of the characters when you have a succession of them:

\version "2.15.32"

% shortcuts for stroke finger indications
% can't use a or p, so use upper case for all
P = #(define-music-function (parser location) ()
     (apply make-music
                 'origin location)
             (list 'digit 1))))
What about

P=-\rightHandFinger 1

Seems a bit simpler.

Sure is. Probably better to use P=\rightHandFinger #1, and can then use - or ^ or _ as needed.
