Not every Lilypond concept could be covered, but much of the basics will be there. But the key is documenting the .ly file so that the reader can see in context how the whole is constructed.

That suggests that we should make more docs to show how to construct complete pieces. This has been begun in chapter 4; again, I welcome contributions to the
