I'm transcribing some music for bağlama, a stringed instrument with frets that can produce notes that are not part of traditional Western music.

I'd like to transcribe some notes using accidentals ♭2 and ♯3. Is there a way to do so in Lilypond?

LilyPond is indeed capable of notating non-Western music and is already set for notating Turkish classical music. Please refer to the two pages below:

and
