Oh I *see*! I wasn't aware that you can simply switch contexts while
remaining on the current staff. Thank you very much, that was exactly
what I needed.

Sorry to be picky, but that's what you did in your previous attempt.
In the solution I proposed above, the point is that you don't switch
context for the upper line and only create an extra one for the lower
line. (Just trying to help you grasp the concepts).
