It finally got here a couple days ago. I have been playing with it some. At least four strings are out of tune and I haven't been able to work up the courage to tune them.I'd like to watch at least once. I'll have to find someone that knows how. The strings that are in tune sound wonderful.
I guess I should tell you all I can't read music, it is a very abstract concept to me. So one of my major downfalls is that if I don't know what the song sounds like, I can't play it and know that it's right ! That is so frustrating to me. Luckily, I have a little bit of an ear, and when I get to know my psaltrey better, that will help some.
Anyway.. I'll be back soon, meanwhile I'll keep at it as much as I can.
