The harp is a fucking amazing instrument. 7ft tall about 50kg. 7 pedals each with 3 positions for the string keys.

The world see's the harp as stuck in the classical world but the stuff this girl can play is amazing. No one really does the percussive style ever. Infact her teachers at the Royal academy of music in London frowned apon it. Its a shame how people get stuck in their ways and shun brillience just becuase its different. Amy has been writing her own songs and the first song blew my mind. I'm going to help record it so I will post it when its up :yesway:

Incredible.

To be honest I've never really been a fan of adding rhythm/percussion by hitting an acoustic instrument (all the acoustic guitar players that do this come to mind...) Just sounds funny to me, I'd rather hear the harp accompanied by a percussionist. That said, don't let my idiosyncrasies detract from the awesomeness that is her style. I would definitely also buy an album of this.

Wow. I'm stunned. That's wonderful.

I'll be flat honest with you... if she put out an album of stuff like this, I'd buy it and play it while I'm writing.

I saw this on SS.Org and didn't even know it was you!

This is really outstanding! I said it over there, but the fact that this was for a wedding makes it that much cooler!
I'd love to hear more of this, as well!
