Good afternoon! I've got a few things I'm brewing right now, but the most pressing is that I'm looking to set all of the chord diagrams for a lead sheet at the top of the page under the title, and modify the spacing of the diagrams to be centered on the page and have padding between each diagram.

Here are the other things I've been struggling to find documentation on:

Changing the size of the chord names above the fretboard diagrams
Inserting markup between the diagrams to indicate that they are different options of the same chord with the word "or"

Thanks so much! Here's my code:

\storePredefinedDiagram #default-fret-table
                        \chordmode { e' }

\storePredefinedDiagram #default-fret-table
                        \chordmode { e'' }
chord_diagrams = \chordmode { c e e' e'' f f:m }

\header {
  title = "Steven Universe Theme"
  composer = "Rebecca Sugar, Aivi & Surasshu"
  tagline = ##t

%these are the chord diagrams at the top of the page
  \new ChordNames { \chord_diagrams }
  \new FretBoards {
      \set Staff.stringTunings = #ukulele-tuning
      \override FretBoard.fret-diagram-details.fret-count = #3
      \override FretBoard.fret-diagram-details.finger-code = #'in-dot
      \override = "ܘ"
      \override = #.37
      \override = #3.6
      \override = #.76
      \override FretBoard.size = #3.6
%end of chord diagrams

\score {
    \new ChordNames {
  \new Staff {
    \new Voice = "melody" {
    \melody }
    \new Lyrics {
      \lyricsto "melody" {

Please forgive me for any oversight of the protocol here, as this is my first interaction with the mailing list.

Thanks again!

First time I try to change color of lilypond elements.

This is what I did to change fingering color:

\version "2.19.82"
{ c' \finger \markup { \with-color #red 1 }}

Is there a better way?
{ c' -\tweak color #red -1 }
