NR 2.4.1, Fretted strings: \tabChordRepeats example

In the following example of \tabChordRepeats:

the purpose is showing that the strings/fret numbers used in TabStaff are kept when using q only if \tabChordRepeats is used. This chord:

<gis cis b>

will turn into 2-4-6 frets from 2nd to 4th string, while these chords:

<gis cis b-0>
<gis cis b\2>

will turn into 0-6-6 frets from 2nd to 4th string, as in the documentation.

I believe that we should explain what's happening in a straightforward manner. I would rewrite this parapraph this way (english speakers, please rewrite properly my words):

Chord constructs can be repeated by the chord repetition symbol
@code{q}, as explained in @ref{Chord repetition}. In combination
with tabulatures, its behavior of removing string and finger
numbers alongside with other events may lead to unwanted results,
e.g. different fret positions.  The command @code{\tabChordRepeats}
will keep the fingering consistent across repetitions.  In the
following example, the default fingering for this chord (without
fingering indications) would be gis on 4th string, b on 3rd string,
cis on 2nd string.  As we use b-0, b will be on second string and
cis will move to 3rd string.  @code{\tabChordRepeats} allows to
keep the same fingering in the following q chords:

guitar = \relative {
 r8 <gis-2 cis-3 b-0>~ q4 q8~ 8 q4

\new StaffGroup <<
 \new Staff {
   \clef "treble_8"
 \new TabStaff {
   \tabChordRepeats \guitar
@end lilypond
