You have to ctrl.-click on the printed example to see the underlying code in a separate browser tab or window, then you can copy and paste the code which will yield the result in LilyPond.

It seems that you have looked at the snippet
The command \shapeSlur which is used in this example is not included in LilyPond by default, but is rather defined within the example file itself. To use it, you have to copy the lines from "shapeSlur =" down to "cords))" into the top of your own .ly file.

If I use the snippet attached, the slur over the notes goes way higher than I'd want and makes the stave spacing in my score poor.  I've tried using:

\shapeSlur #'(x1 y1 x2 y2 x3 . .x4 y4)   [well, actually \shapeSlur #'(0 -2.5 -1 3.5 0 0 0 -2.5) ]

but get an error:

error: unknown escaped string: `\shapeSlur'

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get a less extreme shape to the slur, please?
