## Re: Inserting a space between certain notes in Lilypond

```Hi "Miller",

```
(By default, Lilypond wanted to join the two eighths together with a beam, which was even more confusing. I overrode that with \autoBeamOff...On)
```
```
Your non-standard beaming will be an obstacle to most good musicians — in particular, your first measure is currently grouped as (2+3+3)/ 8, which will cause difficulty sight-reading, etc.
```In any case, here's an option for you (with corrected groupings).

Hope this helps,
Kieren.
_____________

\version "2.13.6"

music = {
b'8. b'16 b'4. b'8 a' g'
\autoBeamOff fis'2( fis'8)
% Want space here
\autoBeamOn d'8 fis' a'
}
\score { \music }

stemRoom = { \once \override Stem #'X-extent = #'(1 . 12) }
correctedMusic = {
b'8. b'16 b'4 ~ b'8 b'8 a' g'
fis'2( \stemRoom fis'8) d'8 fis' a'
}
\score { \correctedMusic }
