  2. Re: NMC rare relic (re-purposed autoharp body)

    Oh by all means, yes. I use harps, zithers and such in my own therapeutic work.

    This, however, I would say is a bit of a reach (mea culpa: it doesnt actually say in the description it was touched...

    Over my life I've worked and played in the field of psychology, and I like to muse a little over terms. "Talent," aptitude and so forth seems at least to be a disposition - a sensitivity (response)...

    NMC harp

    So I'm tempted to buy this wee harp. Probably won't (I play a different type) and would love someone else to. Glen does lovely work and I'll bet this is very resonant small harp.
