Clarification for Strumelia

Harp notes are a 4-eds technique.  Nothing new to the world, just to me.

Stephen Siefert explained them in a video a couple of months ago when he was playing a dulcimer he had recently purchased that was formerly owned by David Schnaufer.  It appears the term goes back at least to Mr. Schnaufer but could easily be way older.

I'm not exactly clear on how/whether 'harp notes' are different from regular 4ED fingerpicking technique, but...  this is just lovely !!  angellic

A couple of months ago, I saw a Stephen Seifert vlideo in which he was showing David  Schnaufer's 4-string dulcimer and mentioned 'harp notes'- only practical (possible?) with 4 equal-distant strings.  You hold one string and sustain a melody note while sounding the next note on the adjacent string. 

Cool! 

This melody was written for this technique.  

BTW - Dulcimer #43; bocote & yellow cedar.
