Re: [Harp-L] Bent note on Amazing Grace
I play Amazing Grace in second position using all 3 octaves on the harp. However, I have played it in first and Joe Filisko showed me how to play it in one of those other positions, where 5 draw is the tonic. It's my "A" number and the one song I feel I can play well.
