Listening to an old friend of mine play this:
You will probably not be surprised to hear that the above instrument is called a harp guitar; it was a fairly popular instrument at the beginning of the Twentieth Century. It also – in the hands of an expert; which my friend happens to be, at an almost frightening level – sounds as cool as it looks. I had video, but it didn’t come out properly.
That’s it. That was my day; harp guitar music, homemade berry jam that had everybody licking their plates, and a bit of time off. Well, that and a freak rainstorm or two on the way back.
