Playing Solo pieces

Most of the program the student is playing the accompaniment part - and that is not always sufficient!
At this point we should consider teaching some solo songs.
The difficulty with solo playing is that we have to play along the neck as we need more sounds. This can be done by opening another set of marks on an Ancient Guitar neck. This will be the third position!
We will mark it on the round neck and will use a RED pen for this action:

Left hand position's notes mark   

Using two colors Black and Red, on the instrument and on the music-papers we can make quite a lot as the left hand will move over the numbers accordingly to the colors.
See the side layout:
