Any other wire types out there? Periodically I begin
to despair (like today, when I'm about to go drop
another $50 at the manicurists)and give up and just
switch to nylon. My own nails do not grow (yes I've
tried every helpful hint known to mankind) so I spend
a modest fortune keep silk fakes on.
Rosamonde, my harp, is a Triplett 20-string cherrywood
lap harp with amazing and wonderful tone (as long as I
can play with nails -- no nails & I'm a silent movie.)
Has anyone out there done much with using harp to
accompany storytelling? I have a wonderful tape
called "Harper in the Hall" -- available from Sylvia
Woods (www.harpcenter.com). It's two sisters, I
believe named Zaerr. One recites the story (Pearl,
Sir Gawain & the Green Knight, etc.) and the other
accompanies on harp.
