When i started with the harp i made a lot of mistakes ? Like we all do learning something new ?
One of the mistakes is blowing to hard and yes trying to bend using to much pressure instead of technic, what happens with the reeds when the get loads of pressure ??, yes die go out of tune get stock ore break.
When this has happend you can re-tune the harp, ore replace the broken reed if you know someone who cane, if not you have to get a new harp ?
Ones you got the right technic your harp will last “for a long time” just cleaning them on a regular basses get you going.
I think Mitch was going to make an extra vidio on this “How to clean the harp” ?
Hope this helps ?
