## Spacer Rests Global Problem

 From: Reggie Subject: Spacer Rests Global Problem Date: Thu, 26 Apr 2018 07:06:59 -0700 (MST)

Hi list.

I am new to LilyPond. I am trying to understand spacer rests and global
block. I know that you can use the global block to handle things like tempo
and time throughout a piece however regardless of what I try it always seems
to create an extra unnecessary staff. Of course I tried to combine my global
variable with my music variable using << >> but the staff still remains
added extra and all my music gets "erased" by the spacer rests. Clearly I am
doing something wrong. I have two questions please.

1) Using Frescobaldi's template creation, it automatically separates out the
global block into the parts, not the staff. Do I need to delete these and
move the global to the score block in order to use correctly? Or how can I
add global to existing template code below? I am confused sorry.

2) What is the formula for determining the spacer rest? For example, when I
see s8*3, what does that mean? What does each number mean in sx*y?

handling. I can't get it to work << >>

\version "2.19.81"

global = {
\key c \major
\numericTimeSignature
\time 4/4
\tempo "Fast!"
s1*4 \tempo "Largo" s1*3 \tempo "Allegro"
}

cello = \relative c {
\global
% Music follows here.
c d e f e d c d e f e d c d e f e d
}

right = \relative c'' {
\global
% Music follows here.
c1 d e f c d e f
}

left = \relative c' {
\global
% Music follows here.
c1 d e f c d e f
}

celloPart = \new Staff \with {
instrumentName = "Cello"
} { \clef bass \cello }

pianoPart = \new PianoStaff \with {
instrumentName = "Piano"
} <<
\new Staff = "right" \right
\new Staff = "left" { \clef bass \left }
>>

\score {
<<
\celloPart
\pianoPart
>>
\layout { }
}
