Thanks, Kevin. I foolishly only altered the duration of the latter pitch.

Take care,

Hi Sam,

The solution is to alter the duration of the first eighth note to 4/3
of its normal duration and the second one to 2/3 like in the following

\version "2.18.2"
\relative {
    { g'8*2/3 f e }
    { c8*4/3 e8*2/3 } % note the altered durations

Hi list,

I'm almost positive I've seen a solution to this before, but I can't
seem to find the magic search terms to get me what I need. I want to
align the third eighth-note of an eighth-note triplet to the second
eighth-note of a two eighth-note segment. In the attached example, I
want the two E4s horizontally aligned. Forcing hshift doesn't seem to
work, and I expect there's an easier solution anyway.

I consulted some Mutopia repertoire with this exact problem: m. 3 and
later of
(code at
), but I still can't manage to get it to work.

Thanks as always!
