To be honest I still find that syntax hard to understand.
Replace the 3 <whatever> with A B and C, how would the
above code render those chords ?

I'm guessing it would be:

    A ( B C )

But if that's the case, what is the initial \parenthesize for ?

Note I used code found in
which has similar hard-to-understand syntax, I used as such:

        | g2:6 \leftParen bes2:dim5 |
        a4:m7 \rightParen d2:7

Guess how it is rendered ?
For obscure reason, the right paren goes _after_
the d2:7 (which is what I want, but looks weird
in the source code).

Please note: I love the lilypond and even more the _community_ around
it, so don't take my observations as destructive as they really don't
want to be :)
