Hello Martin,

That  method is unusual. Chords are usually noted vertically
in the same order as the notes over the staff. The following
command  should place the fingerin _next_ to each chord. Try
using  _  or  ^  instead of - to decide on which side of the
notes should they placed :

startHorizScript = {
  \property Voice.scriptHorizontal = ##t
  \property Voice.Script \override #'padding = #0.3
  \property Voice.Script \override #'extra-offset = #'(-.6 . 0)
  % Avoid collision with the dots of dotted notes
  \property Voice.Dots \override #'extra-extent-X = #'(-0.7 . 0)
endHorizScript = {
  \property Voice.scriptHorizontal \unset
  \property Voice.Dots \revert #'padding
  \property Voice.Script \revert #'padding
  \property Voice.Script \revert #'extra-offset

\notes { \startHorizScript <a4-2 c'-1> \endHorizScript }

MB> BTW: The manual is IMHO a little bit confusing. Does someone know a big,

I'm  (re)writing  a  very extensive tutorial, (for people to
whom  I'd  told of such a project, I started over a scrapped
what I had already done). It should hold 40+ (read 70), if I
manage  to include everything I want, and if I don't run out
of writing quality in beetween. Un/Fortunately, this is ONLY
cibled  for  classical  (read  baroque)  music.  No  way I'm
teaching  anyone  to  use  jazz  chord!  ;-) Not in this one

Best regards,
