Gretchen, that is not me playing. A bride sent me that because she wanted it for her exit (Catholic wedding ceremony). I have no interest in playing the SW, and I felt it was totally inappropriate for a Catholic mass.
I was curious if anyone had any comments on the playing. I noticed something, but I guess no one else has.
Ha! I bet she gets rave reviews. Have you ever noticed the number of random marriage requests on harp YouTube videos? What makes these guys think that being married to a harpist would be particularly enjoyable? Sure, if he wanted to listen to the same run over and over and over and help schlep stuff around, and listen to his wife gripe about humidity – then maybe he’d be a happy harp husband! 🙂
Way off topic, but I think it’s funny. I’ve only gotten one proposal in person, but I bet lots of ladies here get it almost daily. Gents? Do you get proposals from women who want you to be their personal harpists for life?
I like it. Not for a wedding perhaps, but to play for friends, they would all get a kick out of it.
For a second it looked like someone turned her page with their foot. For a brief moment I imagined her turning the music with her own foot. Had to laugh about that. The hand just comes out of nowhere. It is a hand, right? Lol
Balfour, I sure wish I could just “wing it!” That has never been easy for me, no matter the instrument. Improvising is definitely something I’d like to be better at. :). I can arrange music, but off the cuff, not so much. There is something very comforting about having sheet music in front of me. 🙂
It’s not the first youtube harpist I’ve seen who appeared to be using the pinky. I think it just looks that way, I don’t think she actually uses it.
I’ve never had a marriage proposal (except from my actual husband, that is). Although I mostly play in church, so not much opportunity. It might be awkward if someone from church proposed…
Sylvia, I give up…what did you notice?
I agree, Andelin! Sylvia, what did you notice? You can let us know privately if you do not want to post it here. Wishing all of you the best Christmas Eve–I am playing my new Dusty FH36 S (in cherry) for two church services today, so wish me luck! This harp is so beautiful, I know the congregations will love her (I named her “Cherie,” wouldn’t you know it?)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
