I find it interesting that you seem to comment on situations throughout the forum that as a fairly new student to the harp (which is my understanding that you are), you would not be particularly qualified to do.
Sorry forgot to thank Diane and David ice for their kindness i think they are great enough to say good words about others, i really love this site , the column is a great place to meet a great kind hearted and clever harpists that i cant meet them in real as i am far far away from you, i mean from USA .
Just so you know, to describe yourself as poor means either without money, or not any good at all. If you want to appear humble, it is too extreme of a word. We would say struggling, or hard-working, or improving.
America is based on Immigrants and people that do not have English as their first language, so Basel communicating from another country is not going to have a command of the English language in speech or writing like most of us here that are born/educated here or immigrated here long enough ago to have fairly mastered the language in both forms. I know plenty of people that cannot speak or write as well as Basel that are multigenerational American. Basel is very real and definitely a Professional in what he does in his end of the world.
