SP of me and my Oscar Schmidt, being played "Appalachian Style," i.e., held forward. Some people play Lap Style with the harp flat on the lap.
This would have been my second choice for the "Musical Instruments" theme.

    I like both photos Don,but i honestly like this much better for the theme. Love the position of your hands and the wonderful contrast of color. Number one for me. Just my opinion. :-)

    I really like the way this SP is cropped! Hmmm....I'm not sure which I would put in the theme--too bad you can't enter two!!

    An extraordinary instrument, the arrangement of the beautiful hands that form with the details of the face diagonal perfectly in opposition to that of the musical instrument.

    I have to admit that I've never seen one of these. Is a harp a dulcimer? Great POV !!!
