Having always tied my harp strings the same way for YEARS, I have very recently started doing them differently!
I'm now using wooden dowels instead of a bit of thick harp gut to secure the knot, which meant learning a new way to tie the knot.
Like Pavlov's dog, it's going to take me a while to unlearn a lifetime of tying a knot a different way!
But this new way is a simpler way (I think) of doing it, and for someone like myself who is a little bit dyslexic at times this is quick and works first time without being too 'fiddly' to remember.
Loop under - tail over the bottom end of the loop - tail now wraps into the loop - wooden dowel at bottom end of the loop - grab hold of dowel and the tail - pull
Well, I'm a bit of a harp nerd, and it's the quirky more unusual side of harping that usually catches my eye and ear!
Now in it's 6th year, this blog has recently moved from it's original home
on blogspot and the archive is currently being transferred to here.
