Starting descending melody note over a C major chord C-D-E-F to G

Starting from C, the first half relates to C, but the second of relates to G. For visual reference, the lighter shows how it connects to the darker which means to stop.
Sharps go by Fifths (They have five letters per string)
It continues, but since we only go up to seven accidentals (including flats), there's no point in continuing. (bolded color means stop)
Now, using flats (going by Fourths. There are only four letters in each string)
Starting on C:
