This page will help you to post licks on your own page. Here are a few examples of how they might look. Click on the examples to access the playback feature and transposing options.
To enable rendering of licks, paste the line below into the head tag on your web page.
div with the class
bopland will be replaced with the lick corresponding to the code it contains. E.g. the following code
<div class="bopland"> lick 4/4 | Am7-5 d4 [ c8 g eb ] d c f e | D7 eb g bb g# a f# eb c# | Gm7 d4 r r2 | </div>
will be replaced with the lick below.
Each lick contains a "Source Code" tab to make it easy to copy it to your web page. If you want a particular lick to appear on your page click on the lick image with the left mouse button. The options menu will appear. Go to the "Source Code" tab and copy the text in it. All you have to do now is paste it on your web within a div tag with the class "bopland".
Each lick should be prefixed with a type and a pattern telling the compiler which syntax to use and what type of lick it is. Type defines staves with clef, while pattern is used to enable filtering of licks by their purpose like "walking line" or "voicings" after the lick is saved. Valid types and patterns are listed below.
A valid prefix is obtained by joining type and pattern together, e.g.
treble clef solo,
bass clef walking line,
guitar voicings etc. This can be used to move a lick from one clef to another. Take the following lick as an example.
Its source code starts with
treble clef solo where
treble clef is a type and
solo is a pattern. To make it appear in bass clef, one should replace
treble clef solo with
bass clef solo:
There are also some aliases available to save typing:
|treble clef solo|
|lick||treble clef solo|
|solo||treble clef solo|
|voicings||treble clef voicings|
|bass [pattern]||bass clef [pattern]|
|walking bass||bass clef walking line|
|guitar bass||guitar walking line|
Playback tempo can be controlled by putting
tempo N after lick prefix, where
N is an integer number standing for number of quarters per minute. The following lick is played pretty fast - check the Source code tab:
All licks are swung by default. If you want to change the amount of swing - put
swing N after the lick prefix, where N is integer number denoting amount of swing per cent. The default value is 20. The two licks below are played with swing 0 and 99 respectively.
There are a couple of options for render.js script one can use to adjust the appearance.
|lang||en||Language code corresponding to the interface language.|
|width||630||Width of lick images in pixels.|
If, for example, you want all the licks to appear smaller on your page, pass the
width parameter to render.js script:
