Lap Harp

Is the harp an easy or difficult instrument to learn and why?

I should mention that I play piano (2 years) and guitar (6 years). Will this experience facilitate the learning process?

The harp is difficult, especially in the upkeep. Remember that when you play the guitar, you have six strings to keep in tune, and when you play piano, a professional tuner thoughtfully drops by and does all of the dirty work for you. As a harpist however, you get the unmitigated joy of keeping those strings in perfect tune in between practice and during practice and sometime during the concert. You have to learn all sorts of lovely things about the care and upkeep of the harp and after you get done with that rigorous and demanding task, you still have to practice it. If you play fingerstyle guitar, it will facilitate the learning process, at least philosophically, but the harp is it's own creature and the sooner you enslave yourself to it, the better. It is not an unhappy indentureship, but it is a sober and demanding one. The only consolation I can give you (from a dear friend who is owned by a particularly demanding pedal harp - I am only brave enough to serve a lap harp myself and I am a poor servant) is that the intricacies of courtship will seem as nothing to you once you learn to please your new mistress. Of course, you will have no time for courtship but as she says, "There is always the chance that I will get arthritis and I will be free to lead a normal life again!" I am sure she was only being playfull. Well, I'm pretty sure!
