I don't know if 2.7.2 on customising chords has been rewritten yet,
but I'm having a difficult time understand how to customize chord names.
First, to be absolutely clear, this is the first time I'm using
\chords. Second, I've be reading and re-reading this section for about
10 minutes, and I think I've spent too much time on it. Third, all I
really want is F4 and F3. Right now, my solution is to write F7 and
modify the 7 to show what I want. I'm sure there's probably a better
Is it just me, or is there no example in customizing chord names. I
mean specifically, if I wanted to use \italianChords, where does it
go? Second, the section on chordNameExceptions, which is probably what
I need uses Scheme to set it, and I have zero understanding of scheme.
(I'll admit it, I really don't care to learn Scheme, learning lilypond
is enough for me.) Does that mean that chordNameExceptions can only be
used with scheme? Because I don't understand a single word of those
two lines of scheme code.
Incidentally, I'm able to get the output that I have because there's
an example of how to use majorSevenSymbol, and it doesn't use Scheme.
So, to anyone who knows a bit more about chords than I do: help, please?
