The solution you've tried is more or less the recommended method.
In this particular example, it's maybe easier and better to do
a1 \< \! s4
but if you want both crescendo and diminuendo below the same note,
I'm afraid you have to do this solution with a separate of line of
silent notes to attach them to.

Hi all,
I having some trouble with crescs and dims.
How can I attach a cresc or dim. to a single note?

I have tried something along the lines of

\notes {
        \time 4/4
        <{a1} {s4 \< s s \! s}>

...or something like that (sorry if syntax is wrong!)

But the spacing does not seem very nice. Also, it's a bit of a mouthful for
what I'm trying to do!
I have also seen situations where there is a cresc AND dim on a single note.
I can see why the above has a certain desirability because you can sort of
specify the exact timing of the crescendo.

Is there any easy way to get around this?
I am using 1.7.3 on Linux.

Cheers, in advance,
