Subject: RE: Help: fell in love with a harp
how many strings?

mine is a little one (17 string lap harp)... and I love it..... BUT.... I WANT a bigger one...

the little one is great for playing melodies, (I have just over 2 octaves)... but I would love to have the really resonnant bass strings...

I found it very easy to teach myself to play the harp...... I think I got the Mel Bay book after a while, and if I remember rightly there were a few mistakes in it (some of the chords were wrong type of thing)....

I would see if there are any harp makers in your area.. because they often rent out harps.. so you could "try before you buy".....
