The autoharp is that instrument that has a pile of parallel strings that you strum while pushing buttons to make different chords. I remember these from 5th-grade music class along with flute-o-phones and recorders. What I didn't know back then, is that you can pick individual strings too! You don't have to just strum! This piece is 100% picking. A manual autoharp. Hey Mrs. Withersby, stick that in your flute-o-phone and pluck it!
