The reason is that you just copied half of the solution
http://mail.gnu.org/pipermail/lilypond-user/2002-January/000735.html

By default, the Mark engraver lives in the Score context which
means that you cannot have more than one mark on the same bar
line. The trick is to move the Mark engraver from the Score
context to the Staff context, which means you could have one
mark for each stave. This is achieved using the following
lines in the \score{...} declaration:

\paper{
\translator{\ScoreContext
\remove "Mark_engraver"
}
\translator{\StaffContext
\consists "Mark_engraver"
}
}

By the way, I think "on the G string" is really a misnomer
especially when the piece is in the original key as in your
case.
