A few weeks ago, I posted asking for advice on my first harp. Ultimately, I decided on a L&H Ogden. However, it’s going to be a few months waiting for it to be built, so in a couple of weeks I’m going to start renting a Camac Isolde Classic as a placeholder so I don’t have to wait quite so long to get started.
Does anyone with experience on both of these models have any advice in terms of big differences I might keep in mind as I’m beginning to learn? I understand that the Isolde has a few more strings, is a bit heavier, and has a different type of strings. Do you think that there will be certain things I’m going to have to adjust / relearn when I move to my Ogden in June?
I’m definitely going to try to arrange a few Zoom lessons in the beginning, especially for posture and hand position advice, but beyond that I may be largely self-taught for awhile, and doing a lot of reading has always been part of my learning style, so any advice is welcome!
