Subject: RE: Help: Autoharp Agonies
Great ideas everyone. The Kilby Snow style of backwards play may well work for my friend. Her disability is such thatShe would do well with a thumb and finger pick and strum the instrument as if she were playing with a marble 'tween her thumb and index finger. Her general strength is extremely low. So much so that i doubt she can even pick up the instrument to place it on her lap.

Praise, I suggested that notion of a harmonica to her. She pointed out that its very dificult to sing along to a harmonica and I conceeded that she was correct. :-)

I continue to plug along with her. There is something out there for her.
