Thread Name: Know any autoharpy jokes?
Subject: RE: Know any autoharpy jokes?
Rick...*grin*..yep...I cut some chord bars once, and it can be VERY tedious, but now, at least you have 'em...

(BTW, I have often thought: why doesn't Bryan simply tune his harps the way he wants them, THEN use a Korg to index them and note what setting he needs..+ or - 'x' amount, then he can re-tune ti that!.)

I was at a 'harp workshop at Winfield years ago, and he actually had 20-30 harp players spend 45 minutes just TUNING!.

and REAL autoharp joke is doing the song called "The Key of 'R'" which one is called on to play in minor, 7th, diminished...and finishing with a suspended 9th. Of course, the silly fumbling for non-existant chords IS the point!
