For pedal harp only.
Fake Books, or Lead Sheets, are music books that include the melody line, lyrics and chord symbols, without accompaniment. You make your own arrangements using the melody and the chords.
The two volumes of Blazing Pedals are a guide for harpists learning the harmony necessary to play from fake books or lead sheets. They provide a systematic approach to identifying diatonic intervals occurring automatically on the harp.
Volume 1 is subtitled: A Guide to Harmonic Structure and Lead Sheet Playing on the Harp. It includes practice suggestions for organizing an approach for developing an understanding of the key signature's effect on chord construction. Chord charts, lead sheet samples, and flash cards for both chord voicing and progressions are provided.
