- Beginner harpists could possibly omit the written guidance for the left hand instead of the right hand to play melodies, and with left hand chords. The agreements adopted by the arranger Sylvia Woods, his so-called basic chords. That means it's going to grab the most common and traditional chords every harpist simply knows.
- Absolute beginners on the harp may possibly choose to with both hands to play chords, while they or others sing the melody.
- Experienced harpists can easily make an arrangement here and there to adjust their own idea.
- Thanks to the agreements, it is easy for players to play the harp. Remember that this guitar sounds a whole octave lower than listed and that the guitarist actually plays the bass part.
This CD is intended as 'instructional companion to the books', so as to support the learning of the tracks. This CD is the pace of most carols deliberately kept on the low side, to play along with the CD to make it as easy as possible. For the same reason Sylvia Woods plays the pieces, without all kinds of frills or rhythmic variations, just like in the book.
