Harp . . . well, sorta.

I mean, I DID play a tune on a real harp, but only the right hand part. I didn’t take the time to figure out how to do the left hand. Plus, I think the long strings on that particular harp may have been out of tune. The instrument sits in the “experience” room of the MIM, where people can try out all kinds of instruments, but no one was giving the harp more than a pluck or two as they walked by.

I have a niece and a friend who both play, so I knew how to lean it back and which hand does what. It didn’t have pedals, but I would have known how to work those, too. It resonated just fine in that room without pedaling, though. I think a lot of people are intimidated by the harp. It’s just a naked piano. I found the Gs and the Cs and placed my fingers where they needed to be and felt a great sense of accomplishment in playing a little tune.
