```Hi Karl,

```
```or when there are lyrics to assign.
```
```What do you mean here?
Do you mean lyrics to assign to the *second voice* (since the first
voice assignment would be automagic)?
```
```
Try:

\version "2.13.0"

\score {
\new Staff {
\time 4/4
\relative g' { g4 << g \\ d >> g2 }
}
\addlyrics{ a b c }
}

No voice in the << \\ >> section gets any lyrics here.
```
```
```
My point was, if \\ did the right thing, your example would automagically expand to become
```
\version "2.13.0"

\score {
\new Staff {
\time 4/4
```
\relative g' { g4 << { \voiceOne g } \context Voice = "2" { \voiceTwo d } >> \oneVoice g2 }
```  }
\addlyrics{ a b c }
}

```
which works fine, if I understand what you want. So I was wondering if Trevor was referring to something else...
```
Regards,
Kieren.
