## played with one hand or another

Hello,
I like to repost (and rephrase) this question:
I like to indicate to a piano player to play some notes with the

left hand and some with the right hand. All I found so far is the snippet below. I changed it to better explain what I need:
I'd like the first bracket without the top horizontal line, so it looks
like a long "L".
The second bracket should look just the opposite way, like a flipped, or
upside down "L".
Can anyone give me a tip on how to archive this?
I looked everywhere in the documentation, but couldn't find an answer.

Here is the changed example based on:

http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.11/Documentation/user/lilypond/Cross_002dstaff-stems

\version "2.11.56"
\paper { ragged-right = ##t }

\new PianoStaff <<
\set PianoStaff.connectArpeggios = ##t
\override PianoStaff.Arpeggio #'stencil = #ly:arpeggio::brew-chord-bracket
\new Staff = "RH" {
\relative c' {
\key b \major
\time 6/8
b8-.(\arpeggio fis'-.\> cis-. e-. gis-. b-.)\!\fermata^\laissezVibrer
\bar "||"
}
}
\new Staff = "LH"{
\relative c' {
\clef bass
\key b \major
<<
{
e2 \arpeggio << {e4\arpeggio} \\ {\hideNotes b4\arpeggio
\unHideNotes} >>
}
\\
{
a,2.
}
>>
}
}
>>

Thanks
