New issue 865 by v.villenave: Enhancement: ancient tablatures support

Francisco Vila has found a nice feature that could be implemented in
Lilypond: ancient tablatures.

You can see some examples of these tablatures on
http://www.mateus-lutes.com/tablature/ ; they are currently typeset using

Trevor has gathered some additional informations:
The symbols above the staff are the note
values, minim, crochet etc..., the letters
on the strings are fret numbers (the sequence
from a - open string - is:
a, b, r , d, e, f, g, h, j, k, l, m).

The comma after a letter indicates decoration
(different depending on the composer).

The dots, single & double indicate the finger
on the right hand that plucks the string.

The staff indicates the first 6 strings and
the basses are indicated below the staff as
follows in descending order: a a/ a// a/// 4 5 6

There's a lot more information and another
lute tab typesetter at

I'm personally willing to put a 50€ bounty on this feature, but I suspect
this might take quite some time to implement. There may be other people
interested on our tablatures mailing list: http://lists.lilynet.net/tablatures/
