The world's easiest instrument
to learn to play!
The Psaltery (the P is silent) appears in the Bible, it is the english word for Zither (German) a flat hollow box with strings on top. Originally plucked and strummed. These days small psalteries are called LapHarps (they are NOT harps, neither is an Autoharp)
the Violin Bow was invented someone would have tried bowing a
Psaltery and found that it worked. The long triangle shaped
the early 1900's different kinds of Bowed Psalteries were actually
Playing the Bowed Psaltery
Each string plays one note, and all of them are labeled with the letter of the note. Place the Bow over the letter of the note and stroke it.
With the C Scale (white notes of the Piano) on the right side, the Sharps/Flats (black notes) on the left, and every sring labelled, it's as easy as playing piano with one finger (you only play one string at a time, no chords or harmonies) and sounds like a violin. Since it can't play fast enough for Orchestra work, most people never of it, but it's Great for teaching children music.
If you've always wanted to play a musical instrument but never found one easy enough, now you have!
Left handed Psalteries can made to order.

If the universe is vibration,
and physics says it is,
And the laws of the universe are the laws of vibration,
Then the universe obeys the laws of music: LET'S DANCE!
