hey kids, i was wondering if harpo's style of tuning is still used, and whether it makes a distinct difference in the sound of his compostions? i had always noticed that his strings seemed somewhat looser than what you would normally expect and recently learned that it was because he had tuned it incorrectly (yet very effectively) and that correct tuning would not have been able to withstand his playing.
his... glissandos i think they're called, surely would have tore apart a normal harp!?
isn't he just beautiful?! i listen to guardian angels every night before i go to sleep... thanks for the site it's gorgeous! xox
