Re: Moving guitar fingering orientations

Hi Jonathan

I've edited tweaks.itely to elevate the note about fingeringOrientation
and single notes to a @warning and I've also added quite a bit about
using directional prefixes ( _ and ^ ) to force fingerings above or
below the notes.

I've just pushed these changes to LM 4.4.2. Could you please check
them out when they are visible in the docs, probably tomorrow.

I'm a little concerned that there seems to be more in the LM about
fingering than there is in the NR.  Perhaps we'll need to sort that
out after more urgent work is completed.

Thanks, Trevor. I do think the warning is a good idea even though the text already says you need the chord brackets. The other place to put such a warning is in the Notation Reference section on Fingering, although perhaps the revised snippet showing single notes with chord brackets around them will suffice. Lemme see...OK it's not in the docs yet. If it doesn't appear soon I'll ask Valentin about it again. I revised the snippet called "controlling the placement of chord fingerings" to show some single notes with chord brackets around them, but he hasn't put it in yet. Best,

I just got around to doing this, but when I look at LM 4.4.2 it already says, immediately above the examples,

"To control the placement of the fingering of a single note using this command it is necessary to write it as a single note chord by placing angle brackets round it."

Seems clear enough to me but, as people seem to miss it, I'll do as you suggest and put it in a warning box.

Aha! I've already sent a revised snippet to Valentin that shows how a single note needs <> for setting the fingering orientations, but as I was punching holes in my newly printed Learning Manual, I noticed an example that already shows this in section 4.4.2 (or on pp. 104-105 of the .pdf version). It has several instances of single notes with fingerings and in each case the note and fingering is enclosed in a chord construct. There's not an explicit @warning about enclosing single notes in <>, but at least you can see it in the example. Could we add a @warning about this above the example?

Ah.  I see it now.  Yes, this is easily fixed.  How can I alter this
snippet? Valentin, this is your purview, right? Is it o.k. if I just make
these small changes and email it to you?

Yes, please do!
