Sol-fa Song Sheet

Wikichorus uses the sol2snd extension with the <sol2snd> tag to generate the song sheet. The sol2snd tag has the following optional attributes:

tnum 
Time signature numerator (Defaults to 4)
tden 
Time signature denominator (Defaults to 4)
start 
Start beat. The position of the first beat relative to the accent (Cannot be greater than tnum, defaults to 1)
linesize 
Number of beats per line (Defaults to 16)

The sol2snd text content is in sol2snd sol-fa shorthand which sets the

  • Tempo
  • Key signature
  • Notes

For details on writing sol2snd notes, see sol2snd tune syntax.

For lyrics to be shown on the song sheet a child lyrics element can be added in the sol2snd element after the notes. The lyrics element contains run on, hyphen-syllabised lyrics. For more on writing lyrics, see tips adding sol2snd lyrics.

Bugs

If you see a red Script error on the page where the infobox should be it is not your fault. This wiki needs to be upgraded to support the infobox and listen templates. When this is done your markup will work fine. If you do not want the Script error to show in the meantime you can comment out the templates, i.e. enclose them in <!-- -->
