Thread Name: Tech: Playing the autoharp with short arms
Subject: RE: Tech: Playing the autoharp with short arms
One thing that might help -- rearrange your chord bars so the most frequently played chords are in the top row. I almost never play the 7ths -- so I put them in the bottom row.
I put my majors in the 1st row, with the relating minors just below. This really helped. I have short arms and fingers... and this really helped me...
Don't be afraid to do this... just do it on a clean kitchen table and do it slowly (with no cats around) so you don't lose any parts. It's really very easy...
Hope this helps!
