Re: Is it hard to play the harp?

The folk harp I was allowed to try at a Christmas house concert in Hartford in 1979 so simple and basic to someone who could play the keyboard. A couple months later I kit-built one and it came natural.

Every instrument has its virtuosi able to play material that’s miles beyond me. That doesn’t inherently raise the bar for taking any of them up, rather it raises the ceiling over musical aspirations. “Brian Boru’s March” can be achieved by a musician whose ambitions do not reach to “Introduction and Allegro”.
