[Harp-L] Re: harp anthem

Hi Harry,
Thanks for the compliment. I think it's more respectful to the artist to make it your own rather then waste time trying to learn something he probably never played the same way twice outside the studio.

You should hear our version of Help Me. It's not the same old tired version every other band phones in. 

Take care
