Arranged to be played mainly in the fixed hand position. The small staff at the beginning of each piece tells what strings to play. Numbers above the staff represent the fingers of the right hand, numbers below represent fingers of the left hand. Using this method, one can easily pay attention to fingerings, notes and rhythms without constantly looking at the strings.
