Greetings -


And thanks for all your work and help.


I'm trying to produce a chord with one note reduced in size, as in the attached. I've searched the LilyPond documentation and the LilyPond Snippet Repository, but haven't found an answer.


Notation reference 5.3.4 shows that you need to use \tweak to change the properties of one note in a chord:


The internals reference shows that NoteHead grobs support the font-interface, which has a font-size property


So, one can do


{<c' \tweak font-size #-2 e' g'>}





Thanks, Carl! I spaced it on \tweak.
All the best,
