Hi David,

Don't be afraid of asking "stupid" questions. If you don't ask, you'll
never find out the answer.

This is not really an answer to your problems (since I'm not sure what
you were trying to achieve) but just something I noticed because I've
done it myself many times..

Do you not get a warning about "junking lyric request" when compiling
these examples? You need to put the (entire) pitch before the duration.
For example:

{a2. <a2. b2. c2. ais2> <a2. b2. c2. ais2>}
{a2. <a2. b2. c2. ais2.> <a2. b2. c2. ais2.>}

Finally, if the duration of a note is the same as the previous, you don't
need to give the duration again if you don't wish to. For example:

{a2. <a b c ais2> <a2. b c ais2>}
{a2. <a b c ais> <a b c ais>}
