Hi Liam, I have a new harp, same brand and type arriving today and I also bought me a tuner, so I can see if I am out of tone. I used "Bend it Better", an online tool from JP Allen, which gave me already an idea about the correct tone.(or wrong one, hi) I have been looking into some video's about tuning, checking a harp, cleaning etc and I think it has had it good day's. It will become my "technical project" to acquire some hardware knowledge....(the technician in me is anger to know how things work) I will send you a video soon, but maybe you could give me some psychological advice about my doubts. As a technician it has always been a necessity to be sure about something, to check things twice and not to progress until you are 100% sure about it. Automating tasks and conducting them without thinking (muscle memory...), would be risky and could lead to deadly injuries. So it is way out of my comfort zone to do practice and go on to the next lesson without being perfect. But It is clear to me that this is impossible and you have to practice and finetune your techniques in music over and over again for years. You showed more than once in a lesson that a mistake is not a "death sentence". As this leaves me without a reference point, I am not sure when I should move on to the next lesson. What is your advice to take my hesitation to continue away? Where should I put my reference line? Thanks in advance and till soon... Greetings Walter
