The mistake is in bar 1 actually.
You have nine 8th in this measure instead of eight.
I suppose it should be like in bar 5, so  gis8  instead of  gis4 :

  b8. gis8. gis8( gis2)

Then everything should be fine.

It is recommended to input your "ly" text file with one measure per
line, and you can use more barchecks  '|' .
