"It’s HERE!! The long-awaited second edition of “It’s An Autoharp” with a 47-track learning CD included!
"In this new book, Cathy builds on over 15 years-experience as an autoharp instructor to give you a proven method for learning how to play the autoharp. She takes a very personal approach to teaching you how to play, with hard-won pearls from her heart to your fingers. You’ll find an introductory section with information about positioning, picks, chord bar setups, and how to read the autoharp tablature.
Here is Cathy's Website at http://larkpoint.com/ where you can find ordering information on the book - please note that if you are from outside the US then you will need to email Cathy directly for pricing/payment etc."There are 20 lessons, each with beautiful illustrative songs, designed to bring you gently from absolute beginner to progressing melody player. If you go through these lessons methodically from beginning to end, you won’t be a beginner any more!" (taken from website)
I did and she got back to me almost straight away and was so nice when talking about her book and autoharp playing with me. Also, if her shipping ETA is anything to go by I'll be getting it delivered quicker than either of the books I've ordered through professional retailers previously.
(I am still waiting for both books ordered although the "Autoharp Owner's Manual" should be arriving next week sometime and "Mel Bay's Complete Method for Autoharp and Chromaharp" that was out of stock has now been shipped so shouldn't be too far away)
Will let you know more about Cathy's book (and the others) once I have it - hopefully it should prove to be a fantastic aid to my learning (anything is going to be a help!!!).
