I started playing because I am a terrible singer but love music!

The harp is always in key. I have the strange affliction of being able to hear when something is in tune but being completely incapable of consistently replicating a sound with my voice.

I love the sound of the blues harp most, but being from a small Canadian island with a strong Celtic tradition I have heard some amazing harp renditions of traditional Irish and Scottish music and would love to learn some. I have not been brave enough to try it yet as I am still working through the advanced portion of the course, but this is one example that I found on youtube. Any special techniques you are hearing here?
