Default A questionable question?

My 10 year old daughter once informed me, " Dad, there are no dumb questions... just a lot of dumb people." So here goes:

Have you seen or even heard of anyone playing a harp guitar lap style?

Thanks

The last one I saw trying that was handcuffed and hauled off to jail. Poor guy, should have taken up the banjo.

Yes! Well, sort of anyway.

I have seen Manish Pingle live playing the Mohan Veena, which is pretty much a harp guitar played lapstyle.

Yasmin rocks. So it can be done.
Thanks to everyone, especially the warning about going to jail. I currently play on the corner with a tin cup and I get paid to stop. The noise pollution charge is still pending trial
