Another one though; also in the original sample you might have seen I use
\hideNotes. Thet doesn't seem to have any affect in the TabStaff. As a
workaround I made set the transparent property of TabNoteHead to ##t.
Is this a known issue or were my expectations incorrect?

\hideNotes and \unHideNotes are designed to work only with
ordinary staves and voices.  In TabStaff they will hide
stems, beams, dots, etc (if these are being displayed)
but not the fret labels from TabNoteHead.  Maybe they should,
or are there situations where you would want to hide notes
in the normal staff but not in TabStaff or vice versa?
I have not used \hideNotes very often, but as we want to use the input
both for normal staves and tablature staves without tweaking too much,
I think it would make sense to include the functionality into \hideNotes,
but it seems that this would not be straightforward, as, for example,
\revert Stem #'transparent would make the tablature stems visible, too.


Setting the transparent property will work fine, but
you may find the underlying staff lines are whited out
in releases after 2.13.6 or thereabouts unless you also
set the whiteout property of TabNoteHead to #f.
