Re: Moving guitar fingering orientations

I just got around to doing this, but when I look at LM 4.4.2 it already says, immediately above the examples,

"To control the placement of the fingering of a single note using this command it is necessary to write it as a single note chord by placing angle brackets round it."

Seems clear enough to me but, as people seem to miss it, I'll do as you suggest and put it in a warning box.

Aha! I've already sent a revised snippet to Valentin that shows how a single note needs <> for setting the fingering orientations, but as I was punching holes in my newly printed Learning Manual, I noticed an example that already shows this in section 4.4.2 (or on pp. 104-105 of the .pdf version). It has several instances of single notes with fingerings and in each case the note and fingering is enclosed in a chord construct. There's not an explicit @warning about enclosing single notes in <>, but at least you can see it in the example. Could we add a @warning about this above the example?

Ah.  I see it now.  Yes, this is easily fixed.  How can I alter this
snippet? Valentin, this is your purview, right? Is it o.k. if I just make
these small changes and email it to you?

Yes, please do!
