Thanks! That does work nicely. I'll make the problem harder now, though; I usually use an input structure like the following, to facilitate keeping the stems for each voice going the right direction, and I wouldn't *always* want the arpeggioBracket, as the regular arpeggio often comes up in guitar music, too. With your suggestion, it looks like I am limited to the one type. Is there a way to do it without restructuring my files?

upper = \relative c' {
<e' g>4\arpeggio <d f> <d f>2

lower = \relative c' {
<d, f>2\arpeggio <g b>2

\score {
   \new Staff = "guitar traditional" <<

\clef "treble_8"

     \context Voice = "upper" \upper
     \context Voice = "lower" \lower

\layout { }
Just change the arpeggio appearance back using \arpeggioNormal. This is clearly explained in the documentation at
