Hi James,

Welcome to the world of harp and more specifically the nail players corner 😉
Until now, Sherri and I were probably the only nail players on this forum, so it’s good to know we have some company now.
Just as myself, you only have nails on the right hand (I’m a guitarist by nature as well, although I play harp for 20 years now) which is fine unless you want to focus on classical music…the brighter tone of the right hand obviously sounds different than the left hand without nails, and that mix is not the preferred sound there. But still you can play lots of other styles and have great fun. You just have to find that out for yourself.

I wish you a great time playing harp, and welcome to this very useful and friendly forum; there’s lots of knowledge and practical info available here!

All the best
