harp musings

I've had my harp now for about 4-5 months and I'm no prodigy, but I do find the harp "comfortable." I like to go over and just futz with it, focus on my form, just walk around the house playing nothing in particular.

The taiko busy season is coming up, but I'm looking forward to having the time to play with it with the stomp box and see what I can come up with. I was getting some interesting grooves last night without effects, but nothing I could sing to.

It will be slow, but I really hope that I can keep with it and do something cool with this instrument. I'm not amazingly passionate about it, but perhaps a strong comfort with it is better than a blazing passion since it might be more sustainable.

I don't think I'll be up to speed on the jigs and reels I was hoping to be ready for in June, but that's ok and I am getting faster every day.

I find myself wanting to buy gig clothes though and having to remind myself that I won't be gig worth for another year or two.
