    Mary's Wedding

    Would appreciate help with the left hand fingering for this tune from Sam's Scottish Folk Songs book. Unfortunately the book isn't quite as basic as the publishers make out. It would have been ideal if it followed the same format as Sam's ebooks which are excellent.

    Gibson identity

    Hi all, Is it possible to identify which model my Gibson soprano is. From the logo I believe it to be mid 1930's but not sure if it is a style 1 or 2. I suspect style 2 had the rope binding around the soundhole. The uke has an X braced top. Thanks for any help.
