I desperately want to play the harp, with a preference towards folk music. For my own pleasure, not professionally or for performing in any way.
I’ve been leafing through the forum for a few days and realise this is going to be a really contentious issue, please don’t hate me… I wear false nails and can’t not wear them. It’s not just an aesthetic issue (although they do a considerable amount for my self-esteem), I have a problem with my nails that causes them to peel and split horribly and it’s painful to touch without false ones covering them.
I’ve managed to find some info about playing a wire harp with nails, but not much. It’s proven even more tricky to find a wire lap/celtic harp in the UK.
Can any of you lovely people offer any advice to help me achieve my dream?
