Thanks for reporting that, David.

In order for us to fix the pre-defined mandolin fretboard diagrams
you'll have to supply accurate information about what is wrong with

Ideally, that information would be an example of correct fretboard
diagrams from a reputable source.

Is it possible that there are many "standard" tunings for the mandolin,
and these diagrams show a tuning that is different from what you
expected? If that is the case, please consult the docs for information
on how to use your own tunings.

Also, you might like to look at these two issue trackers for Lilypond

docs today:


This one did not lead to a change, but might be of interest.


I hope that some of the players of fretted instruments who read
bug-lilypond will make suggestions too.
