Subject: RE: Tech: Autoharp Bar Felt - Quality
I just purchased an old guitaro that had several loose felts. I lifted the cover off the chord bars and unfortunately half or more of the felt pieces were loose. I could get some felt strips, but when I put them on on the damper bars, I don't know which strings should play for each of the chords and which ones should be dampened. The chord bars are labelled BbMaj, C7Sev, FMaj, G7Sev, CMaj, D7Sev,GmMin, Gmaj,A7Sev, DmMin, DMaj, E7Sev, AmMin, B7Sev, and EmMin.
The strings are labelled the same as the 24 lowest strings on my 21 chord Oscar Schmidt autoharp. I could probably take the cover off the autoharp but I don't want to mess up 2 instruments. Help!
