    Some of you have harps that go beyond the range of the exercises in my first post. For example, @nightthunder has a 38-string Camac Excalibur, which has more bass notes. For those cases, you can use this tool: https://www.musictheory.net/exercises/note . When you click on the gear icon in the upper right, you can change the range to the specific notes you want to learn.

    Another thing you might notice about that gear menu is that it includes an option to turn on Helpers. I didn’t use that feature because sheet music isn’t going to have the lines and spaces labeled for you. However, some beginners might find it easier when first starting out. You can begin with Helpers turned on, and then turn them off as soon as you’re more secure with the note names.
