The Harp-o-Chord

Harp-o-Chord Zither

    The Haro-O-Chord was patented by Carl Brown intending to offer total musical simplicity. It is thicker than most zithers in order to accomodate a fitting for a harmonica. The player is blowing the harmonica through the zither and out its sound hole! This restricts it to a single musical key. The three requisite chords are strung with the principle bass notes seperated from the three-string chord groups so that the stroller could strum with thumb and finger while holding it edge-on to his face. Hope he didn't trip!
