Here's a chance for you to contribute.

What I love about the web is the opportunity to share my thoughts with others. But I also like to hear what others think, and to exchange ideas.

On this page, I'll share some of the comments I've received in my guestbook and via e-mail. Where appropriate, I'll include a link to the original log entry or essay that inspired the comment. In some cases, I may also respond to the comments.

Recreational music making in groups (having fun, socializing) does not define the scope of using the autoharp. Some like to play alone, perhaps with special tunings, and some want to excel and be credible solo or band performers. Using the autoharp at whatever level just to sooth your soul is fine too, call it "fun" if you will, but advancement of the autoharp is not in having autoharps owned in greater numbers, more folks "just like me". It is in making an impressive public presentation and in providing instruments of a quality that inspires people to spend time with the autoharp and to be better players.
