TedK Posted February 18, 2016 Share Posted February 18, 2016 I don't think there is any conflict between cross-rowing and the harmonic style- in fact it's often essential to play across rows to get the chord you want on the left hand. Harmonic style is certainly easiest in the "home keys" of C/G, I personally find it roughly equally easy (or difficult ) in both, but isn't that difficult in D either and definitely something to work towards. The principles of the instrument are the same whichever style you are playing, and personally I think that learning a diverse range of pieces can only benefit your overall understanding of the instrument. I guess the only exception might be if you wanted to learn a strictly Irish style for competitions or something, but I don't get the impression that's the case.
