Some of these old lilypond files where the fingering is done by markup are a real challenge to read. I have had luck with \set restrainOpenStrings = ##t and a liberal amount of \once\set minimumFret=4. To attain a goal of an uncluttered Staff you may need to occasionally hide the string numbering (\override StringNumber #'transparent = ##t followed eventually by a \revert StringNumber #'transparent).
Take a look at my recent Aguado addition<http://www.mutopiaproject.org/cgibin/piece-info.cgi?id=1833>; I followed Aguado's fingerings and for such a short piece it was challenging to get the fingering and tabs to both look correct. Felix, I believe the harmonic notation is correct --- the diamond head at the sounding note and the parenthetic fret number on the touched string. Somebody correct me if I am wrong. And, yeah, the G in measure 11 goes on string 2 unless he is the human rubberband ;-) On Sun, Dec 9, 2012 at 10:52 AM, Felix Janda <felix.ja...@posteo.de> wrote: > On 12/09/12 at 03:54pm, Federico Bruni wrote: > > Can you review it? > > My main concern is how to deal with string numbers. > > I'll comment TabStaff before comitting it, but I want TabStaff to work > > fine so I must specify the string to get the right fret number.
