--seed, does that mean that YOU have enough fingers that you can play an autoharp without bars?

I think that Abby Sales story on the origin of the autoharp is pure fiction. I thought everyone knew that they were first created from all the strings left over when they first made bodhrans by cutting the strings off of banjos.
