So I’m a beginning harpist (lessons since last fall) and having lots of fun with it — until *this* particular piece. It’s in Milligan’s Fun From the First, Vol. II, “In the Month of May.” It’s a pretty little music-box piece, and once I’ve got it, I’ll love it. The right hand includes some simple descending figures, and the left-hand accompaniment is mostly ascending broken chords in a very slightly different rhythm.
Two hands heading in different directions at the same time — *that’s* the sticky wicket.
Do you have any tips toward mastering this simple and essential technique? I’d be grateful for any suggestions from those who’ve been there & broken through to the other side. Thanks!
