Subject: need to borrow autoharp in CA this wknd!

Hi folks. So there I was, at the airport, heading to visit folks and play music the Bay area of California. And I realized my autoharp was still in my house. Oops.

This Sunday I'm doing a special service at the UU Church of Palo Alto - and I really need an autoharp. I'm staying in San Mateo - is there anyone nearby who has one they could lend me. I can drive to pick it up and drop it off. And there's a CD in it for you if you do....

Thank you in advance!

Dan

You might want to check with Gryphon Stringed Instruments (www.gryphonstrings.com/) and see what they can do to help. It is a store is frequented by professional musicians and is in Palo Alto (near Stanford University).

A comb makes a mighty fine kazoo for those that have a mighty wind.

Your posting - just re-affirms what many have observed about members of the UU Church:

I was ... to play music. (on an autoharp?)

I realized ... Oops.(there are NO Ooops in life - get in touch with your being)

I'm doing a special service (spiritual healing for Alzhieimers?)

Anyone...lend me (I will give you a 65 cent CD - but it is copy protected)

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

YES - I am BACK !!! A kinder, gentler, more gentel gargoyle. 2009 is the year of The Gargoyle.

CHANGE

All - he wants is your auto-harp.

Why send an arm (Y)?

OVERNIGHT 24 hour delivery - World WIDE - much easier than an arm.

DAN - you have found your Universal ARM-y man.

Post your address and Mr. Finn will not Sinn - you can count on him.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Thanks Barry a fellow Mick in need is a friend in deed.

Now, gargoyle. Can you truly claim that you have never left the house and forgotten something?

You have no idea how complicated Dan's life may be or what were the circumstances under which he failed to take the autoharp.

Peace!

Very complicated - involving a toddler, an airline that bumped us, the hour of 5 a.m., and a mind made of grape jelly. But I did find an Evoharp to borrow - not what I'm used to, but workable.

Actually, the service is a project I've been working on for 10 years - it's about community. Normally I play it with three guitars and an autoharp, but since I'mon the road, it's down to an autoharp and a borrowed guitar. (Borrowed auotharp too, as it turns out.)

Here's a song included in the service and here's an example of my autoharp playing.

Thanks again to everyone!

Dan
