The More We Get Together, harp
One of the great joys of playing the harp is finding opportunities to play with others. This collection is a wonderful choice for harp circles because it embraces the wide variety of levels and harp sizes that can be present in a group gathering. All of the pieces are playable in C Major tuning, so no worries if you don’t have levers. All of the pieces can be played with, or easily adapted to a 26-string harp. By including the lead sheet symbols, more advanced players are encouraged to embellish with chords and patterns while novice players may choose to simplify.
Each piece is designed to present teachable moments for your group. The book includes a preface with two pages of skills and ideas for teaching the pieces. Some will be best taught by rote, while other are designed for reading. There are opportunities to work with the Dorian and Mixolydian modes and discover how modes can give old familiar songs a new character. You will find some fun original pieces to play along with a nice variety of Celtic and folk melodies.

Oh How Lovely is the Evening (round)
