    ok, it seems like that’s really the way to go then… do you guys have the fibreglass reinforced cases? Or the regular ones?

    Didn’t see the last responses- thank you! I think the elbow angle was part of it too. I think I was tilting things to see the strings better, given the odd height of the chair… hard to explain but I think it was just one of those things that snowballed into a chain of incorrect posture and hand position…

    Thanks for the advice! To be honest I’ve been keeping my eyes on all of that, going back to the basics in terms of warm ups- but I think I’ve solved it: I changed chairs a while back and this one is just not putting me at the correct angle somehow, which I think is causing me to compensate in odd ways. I went back to my old chair and the difficulties are basically gone!!

    I looked at a tone of options for myself, and got lots of great advice from Stephen too 🙂 Thanks Stephen! In the end I went with a Crate Taxi amp, and an Audio Technica pro-35 clip on instrument mic. The combo works incredibly well, and the sound is amazing!!!! I highly recommend the products.

    Funny what one poster said about never earning enough to retire to the Caribbean. My husband and I are moving to the Caribbean in the fall where I am

    At my last wedding gig the bride requested “Marry Me” by Train, which I played and sang for the processional, and Strawberry Swing by Coldplay for the recessional. It was fun!

    Next week it’s back to Tacobell’s Canon Indeed. Bleh.

    Thanks guys. I had a number of people suggest “island strings” but to me that sounds too much like a string quartet.

    I’ve also been thinking of how I can include in the name the idea that I also perform as a vocalist, accompanying myself on harp, which is fairly unique.

    Harpandsong is taken, but islandharpsong is not.

    Other front runner right now is sunsetharp.com and I’ve almost decided on that one. What are your thoughts?

    I guess I was thinking ceremony, but any and all answers are appreciated!

    I play a Ravenna 34 at transport it across the backseat in my Echo hatchback. IT works out perfectly!

    Thanks for the responses! Between the bridgepin tip and the WM Rees article I got things back under control today, and it sounds better than ever.

    I guess I learned that lesson the hard way . 🙁
