Sometimes roman numerals are used to signify the position (II= second position), but other times roman numerals can mean play all the notes on a certain string (IV=G, III=D etc.). Most of the time it’s just numbers that represent fingers and it’s your job to know on which string it’s referring to. Often times these fingerings were added in by an editor and it’s up to you whether to follow them, or make up your own fingerings.
