What a nice video – beautiful location – great miking on the harp – nice clear vid shots – and a great arrangement played exquisitely – bravo!
Rod, he’s pushing on the string between the tuning peg and the stud to create the vibrato and/or raise pitch – takes a lot of strength to get much change in the pitch – same idea as the whammy bar on electric guitars –
Thank you. John answered the question. I’d like to add that you can only bend a string with nylon strings.
I studied piano only “Classical” for years, and I still feel I have a box around me because of that. I feel freer on the harp, picking up tricks like this… and stumming and tremelos from Latin American harp techniques. The tremelo has to be altered with a bent finger for strength as the concert pedal harp is strung more tightly….
