I am wondering if anyone on this list can recommend a source of 
information for learning how to "dampen" strings while playing 
wire-strung harps.  I just purchased a wire-strung harp, and am used 
to the nylon strings, and have no one to show me in person.  Is there 
perhaps a good book, instructional tape, or whatever, out there that 
I'm not aware of?

Please advise!  Thank you!

Also, were harps played on the left or right shoulder in the Middle 
Ages and Renaissance?  Is there documentation somewhere out there for
