I also have a really pretty autoharp I would like to know how to play, but then again, there is that finger and string problem. Plus, no one seems to think you need lessons, "you just pick it up and play". I know there is more to it than that. One day, I might find someone who gives lessons.
When I was a freshman in high school, I took one year of guitar lessons. I learned more about reading music that I already knew and learned that I can't play the guitar because my fingertips split and bleed and really hurt when fingering the guitar.
A really, really long time ago, when I was 17, I got my first recorder. I really wanted to play it, but hated the sound, and it wasn't all my playing, which admittedly wasn't good. Way back then, I couldn't find many books to teach yourself the recorder. Now, with the wonders of the internet, I can find many books and videos on youtube. I still don't like the sound, so now, I have a collection of instruments I cant really play.
|An A and a D Native American Flute. I really like the sounds of these, |
but I think I want to play them without written music.
