Hello!

I am fiddling with this song:

http://bobbthompson.fileave.com/SweetCaroline.pdf

Can someone tell me what that little -1-2- bit means? Looks like this:


Verse 1:
A |-1-2-|-D
Where it began, I can't begin to know it

also here:

Intro Chords: |-A-A-A-A-|-1-2-|-F#m-F#m-F#m-F#m-|


EDIT TO ADD: Ok, I got it figured out, stand down the alert.

Wow, that makes me feel better that you guys don't know!

I watched the dude's youtube vid of him playing it and deduced that 1-2 means finger pick string 1 then 2.

Here's that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbKWiHIhD-k

Did I figure it right?

If seeso "the god of uke" doesn't know, it doesn't exist.

Without seeing it my guess is the u means up strum, upside down u would me down strum.
