Alternative way to annotate music for a viola da gamba (or 'cello)
I'm a cellist, with a son who played viola. As a result, I can play tenor clef, but the alto clef confuses me! Somebody posted some music, for Viola da gamba by Schenck, on Facebook, and I'm fascinated with the idea of annotating music like this. (See attached.) While one could use a bass and treble clef, and move across from one stave to the other, it doesn't result in a convenient music flow as you end up with rests you don't want. It would be better if the music automatically moved up and down the stave.
I have found that it is quite easy to create an 11 line stave (stretching from the base clef up to the treble clef), but this would only be readable if one could make the middle line (middle C) invisible (or dotted, or ...). Can this be done in Musescore? I realize this is a daft thing to do, but...
I hadn't come across the Soprano, mezzo soprano or baritone clefs before, despite decades of cello-playing under my belt!
An alternative might be to colour the stave lines differently. (As is done with Kodaly Colour Strings teaching method for young children.) I have looked, but haven't spotted a way to do this.
I'm just curious and have no real purpose for doing this!
