There is apparently a specific method to wiring an American Light Bulb socket
It's important that we get the right strand to the right screw, so you're going to have one side that's perfectly smooth and the smooth side is going to go to the brass. That's your hot side. The neutral side going to the silver is ribbed. So I'm going to put a little bend in each of the sides here and we're going to screw it down.
I'm trying to write an overhead light fixture which just has two wires coming out of it. Does it matter which one is hot and neutral?
For my light fixture, one wire is red and one wire is blue. For the ceiling they're both white.
