Re: [Harp-L] Re: Powerbender

The funny thing about Brendan's special tunings is that they alway produce 
interesting chords that he never seems to exploit. He seems to be thinking about 
the single note patterns that the tuning makes possible, judging by what he 
plays on them. Yet he always comes up with interesting chord layouts.

Subject: [Harp-L] Re: Powerbender

Just ordered a Powerbender, with the New Year's special about the same price 
that I could have had at SPAH.

I've tried a number of non-Richter oriented special tunings, and found most of 
them to be either too limited (to single notes) or too far from familiar ground 
to be very useful.  But I'm expecting this to be a much more enjoyable 
experience, and looking forward to bending away on draw notes in the top
