Glad you got some use out if it and I hope you continue to enjoy playing.
You’re right on Elizabeth Cotton, she was indeed a lefty.
Thanks Dan for posting this, had fun learning this folk blues tune for the ukulele. Havent really learned much since I’m mainly an electric guitar player. I’m glad I finally found something that was Blues based. I’d always heard of Elizabeth Cotton, I think she played left-handed didn’t she?
