The Major Key Autoharp


    An interesting variant on the standard pattern, this autoharp has all seven major keys and no minor keys at all. Each key group is three ajacent chord-bars, with each triad sharing one chord-bar with the key group on either side of it. It was handy for accompanying folk singers who might try any major key. (The most popular folk key is "D" which is not even available on the old standard chord-bar arrangement!)
