Re: Lee Oskar Meoldy Maker Harps

You could do like I do.  Whenever I think I'm working too hard to find those
missing notes, I try a MM, or a Nat. Minor.  When I find something that
feels good and sounds right, I go for it.  Not scientific, but it works for
me.  It helps to know a little theory so you're not trying a million
different harps.
