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.Harper Cait on July 19, 2011 at 2:40 am · in reply to: Looking for a cheap beginner floor harp in Montreal #157164
Haha. Hi Kathy- I was about to give her your name.
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!

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?Harper Cait on March 26, 2010 at 12:36 am · in reply to: Sharping levers sharping too much! What do I do? #74562
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 . 🙁
