hi re the fretting question , it's called diatonic fretting as used on a dulcimer/ strummer. simply do- ray-  mi  etc ,good fun to play around on . plus stick a capo on the 1st fret and you get  3 ,5 7 9 12 positions for a bit a bluesy noodling. hope this helps . you got  some pretty neat stuff btw ...J
