My attempt at "Far Over the Misty Mountains" on the harp

My attempt at "Far Over the Misty Mountains" on the harp Can't Post

I've been working on this for a couple of weeks, and it's not perfect of course, but this video is about as good as I'm going to manage. I'm supposed to play this next Sunday night in church for a solstice celebration, and possibly on Christmas Eve too (our minister loves Tolkien, and I've played LotR music on Christmas Eve for most of the past ten years.)

You'll notice that I start off with the tune from the old Hobbit cartoon. That was probably the first piece I ever played on my harp, back in 1980. Then I go to the new tune. They are enough similar and enough different to make a nice combination. Sorry it's so twangy. I think that's the fault of my little camera.

I'm also showing off my new dwarf beard in the video :-D
