Hi David

Many thanks for this. The abbreviations are fine as they are - these headwords are not intended to teach anything, they're just to show what is possible. I added midi output (hope that's OK with you - what tempo do you suggest?) and pushed to git master so we can see how it looks with the formatting imposed by the docs.


Can I see anywhere what this imposed formatting is for headwords so I can try the same formatting locally?

Certainly this is fine with me.  David's piece looks really cool and
could serve as an example for much more than just bowed-string
techniques.  It'll be better to use his example.  Best,

Hi Guys,

Here is the self content extract file [and pdf result on my box, both attached].
Should I add a legend for the abbreviations?

[I upgraded to lilypond 2.11.61 to make sure that both type setting and rendering are
the latest]

Take Care,
