Gooday chaps.
I’ve been playing the Ukulele for a couple of years with a range of Uke groups from Yinnar through Melbourne and up to Girgarre here in Victoria, Oz.
What got me excited about picking up a Harp was not one particular riff or tune, it was the fact that the harp is so versatile.
All the groups we play in has a Harp player lurking and it’s great to see and hear them produce one from the pocket and just break out into a ripper little instrumental.
I wanna do just that sort of thing.
Some of the Simon & Garfunkel stuff lends itself to just that I reckon.
I’m a long way off ripping the Harp out of the pocket in public, but we have a goal.

Cheers to y’all 🙂
