Small slurs

• Jun 15, 2021 - 23:05

For grace notes, is it possible to make cue-sized slurs? They're somewhat thinner than normal slurs.


I don't think, that's possible to adjust the thickness of slurs individually. It's possible to change the thickness globally for slurs or to change the size of grace notes, and as far I can see the size/thickness of the slur changes in the same ratio as for normal notes.
But I don't know if there are general rules about the thickness of slurs between grace notes and other notes.

Gould makes no distinction between the thickness of slurs on grace notes and those on ordinary notes, but perhaps there are publishers who do (or did) it differently. Some examples "from the wild" to support the use of thinner grace note slurs would be useful.
