Sure. Here are the first four measures of a song I'm trying to tab. Notice 
that the first 2 measures use a single note (a) as the chord. The midi file 
plays it as violin.

In the 3rd and 4th measure, I'm using chords a and e and the midi file plays 
these with the piano instrument instead of the violin.

  title = "I Want You"
  composer = "Elvis Costello"

\version "2.7.39"

\parallelMusic #'(harmonyIntro melodyIntro textIntro) {
   \transpose c c, { { a1                       a                      }}|

   \relative c''               { cis4.      a8 d4.   cis8  b8  a2 r4 
a8           }|
   \lyricmode {                  Oh         my ba-   by   ba- by    
I             }|

   \transpose c c, {\chordmode { a1                          
e                   }}|

   \relative c''               { a8   b8  cis8 d8   b'4. cis8 b4. s4. s16   
cis16( b16 a16) }|
   \lyricmode {                  love you more than I   can   tell      
I          }|


\score {
       \new ChordNames { 
          \set Staff.midiInstrument = "violin"
       \new Staff <<
         \new Voice = "melodyIntro" { 
           \set Staff.midiInstrument = "violin"
         \new Lyrics \lyricsto "melodyIntro" \textIntro
     \layout { }
     \midi { \tempo 4=80 }
