Tom Hoelle: Remnants of Lee

A while back, I was searching for some harp guitar music on YouTube, and found Tom Hoelle’s original composition of “Remnants of Lee” and immediately placed it in my favorites. Tom is playing a harp guitar of his own construction. Besides the typical six guitar playing strings, it contains 6 additional bass strings and 8 extra treble stings.

Hoelle called the tune “Remnants of Lee” and explains its inspiration: “I wrote this song on the porch of a cabin up in the Smoky Mountains shortly after the remnants of Hurricane Lee made its way through the area. Record rainfall and the place was beautiful!”

The guitar is beautiful as well as the tune. Tom chronicles its construction at http://www.tomhoelle.com/harpguitar.htm
