Stille Nacht, melody line only

One local beginner had the misfortune of beginning with a "method" which stressed playing open accompaniment strings and higher (especially fourth) positions on the griffbrett. This resulted in difficulty playing simple folk songs from sheet music. The zither is an ergonomic wonder. perhaps I'm lazy...
