    @victoria.johnson Oh, no! 😲 One place you’re sure to find sympathy for a sore finger is on a harp forum. We can all relate.

    Stephanie Claussen has a YouTube video, “Injured? 12 Ways To Improve your Harp Playing (when you can’t practice like normal).” She talks about ghosting, and you might be able to ghost the left hand while you’re playing the right. Do you use MuseScore or another notation software? You could have that program play audio for the left hand while you practice the right.

    Fair warning: If you say you don’t already use music notation software, I’m going to try to talk you into getting MuseScore, lol. It’s is a free download from musescore.org. (Not the MuseScore app.) You have some extra time while your finger is healing to learn it. 😁
