I really enjoyed the harp guitar timeline, I feel that actually has potential to be added to  (perhaps by Sir Stephen Sedgwick or Benoit).

 

My 2 cents:  I think you should include the date that the Harp guitar website went online considering that this site itself is history in the making!

 

Once again hats off to Pope Gregg Miner!

Thanks Nate - yes, this can certainly be added to (though with how much detail is the question).  It was originally done as a key overview for the layperson, and ended up pretty huge already.  In this format, we can likely add to it (within reason) forever!

After going to my notes, I was able to find two more dates to contribute to the timeline:

 

1773:  Naderman creates the "Bisex"

                  (which interestingly enough had sharping levers!)

1798:  Edward Light coins the term "Harp guitar"

 

Other notes:

Johann Scherzer was a student of Stauffer

           (as was Fredrick Schenck and Martin)

Schenck's ideas influenced Mozzani.

Coste was a student of Sor

At least four of the Martin Harp guitars were built for Olaf Ericsson

Thanks Nate. All true, and good stuff.

For now, I decided to include only those events which specifically included "our" harp guitar.  Those and similar events and provenance are all presented in my Organology article.

The other details you mention may be useful for the person who writes the full, definitive, rich history of the instrument (along with a zillion similar details to be found on the site and other resource materials).

I'm in no hurry!

Very nice Gregg! I bet you could trim it down to a poster sized table without too much trouble. You just have to keep reminding yourself to keep it simple. Been there, guilty as charged!
