Are you a fan of traditional Irish music? I hope so! If not, maybe this piece will convert you. I learned this from the gorgeous playing of harpists Billy Jackson and Gráinne Hambly. This is such a gorgeous piece. The backup highlights the lovely chord progression using major 7ths, minor 7ths, and dominant 7ths. The big lesson here is to think chords, and use chord shapes/patterns. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0gEZSLCoLM
