Harp players and listeners alike have been fascinated by the modern double-strung harp since its invention in 1989. With its ability to overlap melody and harmony in the same range, and its unmistakable "echo" effect, the double-strung harp is a natural outlet for musical creativity and fun. Some harpers and harpists have learned its secrets through instinct and experimentation. Others still wonder: "That harp is so cool... how DO you play that thing?" Good news: There's a book for that!

Make Mine a Double includes:
66 exercises and etudes to support each area of double-strung harp technique.
15 additional double-strung harp arrangements;
Background information to answer your double-strung harp FAQs.

This book is written for small double-strung harps with G below middle C as their lowest note, with 22 strings (or more) in each row. Although you'll need F and C levers on both rows to play the music as written, you could play over 70% of the music without levers. Only two arrangements in this book (Country Gardens and Greensleeves) have lever changes for accidentals during the piece. Advanced beginner/intermediate difficulty; fingerings and placing brackets are included for each arrangement. Key of C or sharp keys. 148 pages.
