Hi Folks,

I read the documentation of lilypond and it recommend to define the
notes in variables and use them afterwards.

But how is that with multiple scores for setting multiple songs in one
file/book? I cannot set the vars inside the score, they have to be
global. But then it is painful to have such a pollution of the global

What is a better way to do so?

Another think is about transposing. In the example I had before I have
the cords "a:m g a:m g c g d:m a" But with a->e, the d:m gets
transposed to a:m but the song only works with a c here.

I do not know transposing very well, so, is that just a wrong chord in
the original or is there any trick to get the c from the d:m? If I look
at the Circle of fifths, I just think, the first assumption is right.


Hi Klaus,

Have you tried using \include statements to use variables across other files? Is that what you're looking for?

Also, what do you mean 'they have to be global'?
