Roger the zimmer More Strings Than Most: how many harps? (52* d) RE: More Strings Than Most: how many harps? 16 Aug 99


Sorta thread creep! The dreaded amplified autoharp player of Bracknell was let out again on Saturday in the shopping centre. He wisely sat next to the security booth so I couldn't unplug him. As far as I could tell through the reverb he played Danny Boy and the Theme from the Deerhunter, but the other tunes seemed pure Muzak. He seemed to want to sound like a synthesizer but why I don't know when he could have played straight (I would have though it would have been loud enough without amplification) and the reverb really set my teeth on edge, I can't imagine it would encourage anyone to take up the instrument (in my arrogant uninformed opinion). Rant over I'll go and take my medication now!
