I'm having trouble deciding what the proper fingering should be for this particular bar of music. If you click on the above link please open the file labeled

fingering guide wanted.pdf

It's a small graphic that shows the notes that are puzzling me and hopefully someone can steer me in the right direction as to how this should be played.

The left hand is easy 5, then 4.2.1. - repeated throughout.. 5. then 3.2.1 would work as well.

Right hand by whole note..

5.3 - 2 - 1 - 2.5...... 2.5 - 1.4 - 2.5...
5.3. - 2 - 1 - 4.2.....5.2. - 1 - 2.4....

one could use 3.5 for the last right hand chord,, but I imagine 2.4. would set you up better to play the chord that comes next.
accompanist/organist.. a non-MTNA teacher to a few
