# Bad alignment with MusiXTeX

I used the following code to typeset a music sheet:

\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage{musixtex}

\begin{document}
\begin{music}
\startextract
\Notes \ibl0{'b}0 \qb0{_cbb} \tbl0\qb0a \enotes
\endextract
\end{music}
\end{document}



However, the result is misaligned and there is a gap after the first note.

What's the correct way to do it?

You can use a different notation.

\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage{musixtex}

\begin{document}
\begin{music}
\startextract
\Notes \Qqbl {_j}iih \enotes
\endextract
\end{music}

\end{document}


This yields

Anyway, removing a space in your input also fixes the issue

\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage{musixtex}

\begin{document}
\begin{music}
\startextract
\Notes \ibl0{'b}0 \qb0{_cbb}\tbl0\qb0a \enotes
\endextract
\end{music}

\end{document}


Leave no space between notes.
