How could you not love these chords??

HOH-Outtake-Harmonic-Animal2-signatureToday I’m working on the materials for this weekend’s so we can FEEL it and HEAR it, so it comes alive.

Hands on Harmony is a workshop about how harmony works on OUR instrument. Since all the content is available to you right when you sign up, it can be learned in one day or one week. I really want you to have this in your hands and your head, because it will make all the other courses I teach so much more fun and enriching for you.

Whenever I work on a new course or a new way to explain something, I’m constantly searching for ways to visualize it to myself.

I need to see it as one organism, one shape, one animal, one map.

And I need to love it. Because it’s beautiful, or clear, or funny or just alive.

Some I work on for years, some are quick sketches like this … er … uh … well that’s the thing …

This is my newest visualization of an extended chord and it’s possible alterations.  I can see it’s an animal.  But what’s it called??

Do tell me.  Below, in the comments.

And if you play the harp, sign up for “Hands on Harmony” and learn how to play this baby on your harpstrings.
