    A book of romantic pieces, either classical or more modern (e.g. Lady in Red) that is arranged for a beginner please?

    I’m not sure what part of the world you are in, but I recently purchased a book online from the Sylvia Woods Harp Center called 22 Romantic Songs arranged for the harp.

    I’m in the UK Donna but don’t mind paying for shipping if I can get some nice pieces.

    The tutor books I have are predominantly Scottish, Irish and Welsh although there are some very nice pieces in them, I have to admit to not being a great lover of some of them.

    Think one of my favourite John Denver Songs is “Annie’s Song” – probably also the one he is most famous for.

    Do you have decent theory skills?

    Donna O on #161426

    Glad to see the Sylvia Woods book is available in the UK.

    Yes I’ve got theory skills – 13 years at music school from age 5 to 18 taught me that.

    Don’t just feel for the strings, Fiona.

    Absolutely!!! You NEED to look at the strings. There’s something about that “looking at the strings things” that makes it just that much easier to memorize everything for the harp.
