I am having a problem getting the harp to play at all.

I'm at the point where you need to get the two windmills to point at the light tower. I've done this (via retrieving the propeller with the robot). A new platform has appeared at the light tower. So, I go to the light tower and… can't get the harp to come out of my inventory! Help!

I don't know why people keep saying you need to press "down". Looking at the Wiimote with the blue lights at the bottom (so all the text is the correct way up), I need to press the topmost d-pad button (i.e. the one nearest the power switch) to activate the harp. I'd call that "up"

This may be setup dependent, but to find out for sure, follow the instructions below:

If you're struggling with particular controls, on the (1) button menu where it shows you all the tablets, pieces of heart and other assorted carried items, there's an option on the bottom left to set the interface to "Standard", "Light" and "Pro".

While it may feel all manly to go for "Pro", what this controls is the HUD on the right hand side when you're running around.

Switch it to Light and you get to see which d-pad button controls what trick such as Hints and the Harp, what A does, and what the (-) and (+) buttons do.

Switch it to Standard and you get to see the entire WiiMote, which is really handy when you feel like you're missing a trick.


Press down on the Wiimote's D-pad while standing in the center of the platform, then start strumming while holding B. Here's a video. You should only have to strum once or twice to get things going.
