Hi Liam and fellow harpers! I'd be much obliged for any feedback on this rendition of the Bill Withers song. The lesson is an exercise in dynamics so I'm trying to modulate amplitude - hope you can tell. No matter how many times I practiced, the end of the train of "I know, I know"s always took me by surprise. (anyway that's my excuse for the obvious screw-ups). It's fun to play this, and there are many really nice versions out there from which to take a little inspiration. Thanks for your indulgence.

Hi Liam & fellow harpers, I really love this waltz, and had fun practicing it. I'm not happy with my tone though, would appreciate any suggestions on how to get a fuller, richer tone. Tongue-blocking seems to help[, but then I get the problem of reeds sticking, sometimes after just a few minutes. Thanks a lot for your comments, Michele

Happy Holidays Liam and fellow harpers! If you're not tired of Christmas music please have a listen to this recording of 'Blue Christmas'. I have a squeakiness problem with the E harp. Switched to A to play in 2nd position near the end. Any feedback is appreciated. Hope everyone has a good holiday and a better 2022!!

Hi Liam and fellow harpers, I'm making my way through the Intermediate Course and enjoying it very much. I especially like country-style or folk playing. Could you please offer some feedback on my rendition of "hoof & mouth", attached? Thanks a lot.

Hi Liam & all. I'm following your 'intermediate blues course' and finding it very good, but challenging - don't know if it's the right level for me or not. I find the 100 bpm a little too fast but I don't see a way to slow it down. Anyway here's my attempt at the song study 3. I'm looking forward to any feedback, thanks a lot.
