I’m an advanced beginning/low intermediate harpist and just discovered this forum – how fun to read thoughts and tips from other harp lovers! Anyway, the other day I was putting together a list of my pieces, along with the key they’re in and how many levers to throw, and there it was:
“Lark on the Strand” or “Trip to Sligo” – I really like the melody, but it is just an irritating piece to play! It just has this awful tendency to make me buzz a lot (even my teacher said she has trouble with buzzing with that piece!) I’m about ready to toss it out of my repertoire, but my repertoire is already so slim …
So anyway, it just made me wonder – do any other harpists here have a piece that they like but is just irritating to play?
