This model has an additional note on the bottom of this lap harp that extends the playing range. And the music expands your playing capabilities. The starter set of music is written in the same 'connect the dots' style for the ultimate in easy playing for everyone regardless of music background. But, in addition, an easy to follow system of adding harmony notes is incorporated into the music. The melody notes are written in black; the harmony notes are in red to differentiate them. You can choose to pluck only the melody notes with a pick or use your thumb and index finger or middle to pluck melody and harmony simultaneously.
Adding to the looks, the sides flare out and the soundhole has a solid wood laser cut Celtic Knot rosette insert. It plays 2 octaves in the key of G.
