The Harp Gathering, Folk Harp Festival
Tip of the Week...
Check in weekly for tips and tricks from the pros!
Tip: Always, and I mean always, play the harp in front of you. If you play a small harp as if it were a large harp, you'll likely send too much energy into the smaller soundboard and soundbox and it'll sound bad. Along similar lines, if you play a higher-tension harp with the light touch you'd use on a small harp, therapy harp, or historical harp, you won't deliver enough energy traveling along the strings to get the wood of the harp moving, and that harp won't sound its best either.
Tip: Does marking the fingerings in some of your music challenge you? There are many great tips about marking fingerings, but the shortest one is: look at the destination; do you need to end up with your thumb, or your 4th finger perhaps? Then, work your way backwards!
