Harping On the Black Notes, Harp Solos


Category: Tag:


This book contains 10 two-page harp solos, with melodies which were all written on the “black notes” (black keys) of the piano. I wrote the melodies in the key of F#, then transposed them to more harp-friendly keys. The left hand parts do not stick just with the “black notes.” In the drop-down menu, you can choose from book, eBook, CD, mp3 download and book/CD combo. Click to view music samples. The eBook is also available on Sheet Music Plus.

There are pieces in C, F, G and D. They are all lap-harp friendly (by accident) so the book can be found both in lap and larger harp sections. There are chord symbols so that those playing larger harps (or those who just like to have the chords) can expand upon the arrangements as they so choose.

There are no lever changes within the pieces. They hover around the intermediate level, with some a bit easier.

The sheet music pieces are on Sheet Music Plus. Click on a bold song title to go there, where you can view a long music sample and hear an audio clip. These pieces will be hooked up approximately July 12.
