This is actually kind of zither where is possible to play very easily a chord accompaniment – this is made possible by pillar chord stripes. “You need a year to learn basic principles of guitar playing”, as contemporary slogan says. “Autoharp you can handle in a week.” The number of strings, the size of the instrument, the number of chords – this all could be different, adapted exactly according to your wish. It is possible to build two basic types: Chromatic – for playing in large number of keys or diatonic – for playing in only one key but with a clear sound. Mentioning chromatic type – it is possible to place strips up to 21 whichever chords.
