Wire Strung Harp: Bass for Dance Music. The use of Na Comluighe

The very particular tuning of the Wire Strung Harp shows us two strings lying beside each other tuned G. It is exactly the same note and nobody knows why they are there. Those two strings are called na comluighe or the sisters. There have been wild speculations even theories based on spirituality. Some of the Wire Strung Harp harpers even abolished the double string tuning. Nobody has yet developed or played baselines with the double G incorporated or made any use of them. This is where my work comes in. With relative easiness, a rapid, rhythmic way of playing is accomplished. Here a peep into my work. Watch this space.
