    As per subject header, no open strings, I am currently thinking 1-4, in 1/2 and position for initial 2 bars?

    Thanks all

    Why no open strings? I would choose 4 on G and play in one position and use the open g string. Or 1 on G and 4 on the Es and 4 on the high g. No reason to shift. Either one of those options is fine.

    Why not play both lines in TP? try putting your thumb on the C on the D string and play the whole first line in that position. Then for the second line move everything up one whole tone, placing your thumb on D.

    I play that mostly on the G, except for the notes after the higher G and A. It's FF and you get a nicer bite than playing it in thumb position. Sorcerer's Apprentice. Always fun.

    You have a remarkable ability to identify pieces, Mr Neil G... ;)
