Accuracy is everything when you’re talking about harp harmonics.

So, when you’re practicing these next few lessons you’ll want to remember to maintain a relaxed technique so your hand stays in place.

It’s very easy to let the real notes overpower the harmonics.

To get the effect we’re going for, you need to balance out the volume of these real notes and harmonics.

Example 1 will get you used to cascading real notes with harmonics. You’ll start with a normal finger pattern and quickly begin the harmonic sequence.

The pattern ends with a normal finger pattern again. This makes for a long sequence pattern that nestles the harmonics in the middle of the phrase.

Ex.1

E|--------------------------------0---------0----------0--------|
B|---------0----------0-------------<12>-----------------------0|
G|------0----------------<12>----------------<12>---------0-----|
D|---0--------<12>---------------------------------------0------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------|
E|0-------------------------------------------------------------|

Example 2 will apply what you learned in Example 1 and apply it to a chord.

For this example, you’ll need to outline the chord shape an octave higher on the fingerboard. Practice this slow and balance the volume through the phrase.

Am

E|-------------------------5-------5-----------|
B|-----------------5---------------------------|
G|-------5----------<17>---<17>------5---------|
D|-----7----<19>---------------------7---7-----|
A|---7-------------------------------7---------|
E|-5-------------------------------------------|
