    Making and playing a Harp Guitar

    Several people on here (myself included) have made Electric Guitars, I've never tried an acoustic one, maybe someday.

    Here are two videos One of building a Harp guitar and the other playing one. Neither of these are of me!

    Watching her play reminded me of a quote someone made about Chet Atkins, they said "It's like each one of his fingers has it's own brain"

    I don't know if I'm up for making one, but I'd love to play a harp guitar. The feel of the vibrations against your chest as you pull notes off the drone strings must be a full-on rush. I used to play around a lot with drone bass tunings on a 12-string...the harp drone strings would be even better.

    I did the same. It takes a lot for a guitarist to really impress me. She really, really impressed me.
