Newbie to both this forum and to harp guitars...although I've been playing badly since 1964 with a 30 year hiatus in between.
My sweet wife decided that this was the year for me to get a harp guitar and my Holloway Model 5 is due to ship any day now! Boy do I have a lot to learn!
Glad to be a part of this wonderful place.
Dan

Hi Dan

 

Welcome, and enjoy your Holloway. Mine is driving me nuts! But I love a challenge.

Hi Dan!

Welcome to the Holloway gang!
I have to agree with Steve....
Baby steps first, will lead to those magical moments when things
just seem to fall into place... can't explain it, but it sure is nice
when they happen.

Hi Dan,

 

Welcome !

 

You said you had a lot to learn. Trust me, you can’t go wrong if you start here-

 

First, you must get this video- Great place to start !:  (You can also get this anywhere else  it’s available):

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Stephen-Bennett-Harp-Guitar-Artistry-DVD-/260909809720?pt=US_DVD_HD_DVD_Blu_ray&hash=item3cbf6fc038

 

Then this must-have:

 

http://truefire.com/acoustic-guitar-lessons/harp-guitar-basics/

 

then you must consider this as a follow-up:

http://truefire.com/acoustic-guitar-lessons/harp-guitar-repertoire/

 

After that, you can consider where you want to go with it all.

 

You can also go to Stephen’s site and download his tab for harp guitar. (It's only in the last couple years it has became available) His music is all wonderful, and playing it will get you completely comfortable with the instrument- extra strings and all…  http://truefiretv.net/sites/harpguitar2/?page_id=303

 

 Fasten your seatbelt !

 

Best,

 

                -Eric…

Eric - all good suggestions!  Except for shopping on eBay when both SB and HGM have his older DVDs on permanent sale.  In fact, you can purchase all of that from either of us, thus helping the cause.
