Yes, no question.  It may require some work to get it in that particular
form, because the music is not notated as a single piece, but as a
collection of various fragments that should be put together.  But LilyPond
clearly has the capapility of creating all that notation.

Personally, I don't like the look of that engraving, and I wouldn't do it
that way.  I'd just write the music out.  It would take more pages, but
would be easier for me to play.

At any rate, this is clearly within the capability of LilyPond, especially
now that Marc has added so much Tab capability.
