Harp-guitarist Jon Pickard plays live in the ViRAL studio on Sat November 19th 2016. The show was presented by Patrick Moss. Harp-guitars have been around for longer than 6 string guitars. They have a rich and varied but elusive history all across the globe. The instrument has a normal 6 string guitar neck, but also 7 ‘sub-bass’ strings (like a Theorbo) and 10 ‘super-treble’ strings which sound a little like a zither. The extra strings are unfretted, hence the name ‘Harp Guitar’.
