Hi, I'm not well versed in Lilypond but for an exercise I'm trying to copy some sheet music for drum kit.http://imgur.com/gallery/gE9XE/
is the original, I am attempting to copy the second set "Paradiddle Linear 1.2"http://lilybin.com/7zp868/1
is my attempt.
I used a snippet of code (http://lilypond.1069038.n5.nabble.com/flam-snippet-not-working-td149310.html
) for the flams, I'm not sure if there is a more simple way but it appears to work well as is.
Things I'm sure I can improve:
I can't get the very first note that is a flam out of the tuplet bar without things breaking. Not very important though.
I thought I was forcing stemup but it didn't work.
Is there a simple way to align the sticking in a way more similar to the original. Please bear with me I don't know any scheme.
Any other suggestions to simplify things are appreciated.
