Hi everyone

I’m trying to use HorizontalBracket to annotate the intervals between notes of 
a scale.

The example (perhaps not minimal, but almost working) attached shows something 
very close to what I want to achieve.

However there are a few things that need to be fixed, or improved:
1) the brackets remain outside the staff no matter how I fiddle with staff-
padding and padding properties, while I would like them to stay closer to the 
2) I cannot find an (obvious and) automatic way to have the ends of a bracket 
to align with the center of the note heads. I found a manual workaround by 
setting the shorten-pair property, which is a far from being an optimal 
3) is there a way to create a V-shaped bracket? The hack I came up with is 
4) to have brackets both above and below the notes I have used two voices, one 
with the notes hidden. Is there a faster/less verbose way to obtain the same 

Besides these, it would be nice (but not essential) to have these bracket to 
also follow the slope of an interval.

The summary of my needs can be found in the attached image.

Can anyone shed some light, please?
