Re: [Harp-L] amazin' grace on harp

I'm sure you'll get lots of responses on ways to play this. I do it in second position and have a basic version of that on my MySpace page.
I start in the low octave, play the second time in the middle octave, do it again starting on 9 blow and finishing that one again on the low octave.My final solo is a mixture of things but stays pretty true to the melody.
It's not hard in second and you can get quite soulful.  hope this helps.
