Re: [Harp-L] Lee Oskar interview
This last weekend, right before the biggest gig of my life...my C-harp goes out....
took it apart quickly but nothing is going to work...go to my back up....goes out of tune......
Turns out the back up to the back up is not in tune. Yikes.
I look at the song list.....guest performer sings everything in key of G...(and the kind of songs that require C-harp)
A friend in the audience walks up and asks whats up...I tell him...
He goes to his car and returns with a brand new lee oscar C major harp... the guy does not even play.
I told him I don't play those...he says "take it...I just bought it and I don't even play".
You know...I played this harp all day and it played flawlessly...out of the box it was in tune...
I admit it did not have the sweet spots I am used to with other harps...it just played even at all parts of the harp....
For some reason I had not been impressed with them when I first tried the product...(when it was first on the market)
Wonder if they improved something...(tuning seemed better and the first ones I bought blew out quickly)
I played with a sax player next to me and the thing was spot on...
I am impressed...This seems to be a good product...and the harp gods were smiling on me. (the guy had just the key I needed when I needed it...still in the box)
Always loved Lee's playing and perform City, Country, City..every night...his solo album "after the rain" was a lesson in simple lines with perfect tone...tone , tone...(good place to learn tone..get it)
