To unlock the Harp Jam minigame, you need to go to the second floor of Lumpy Pumpkin and roll into the wall repeatedly to break the chandelier. After breaking the chandelier, talk to Pumm and he will ask you to do three tasks for him. The final task is the Duet With Kina and completing it earns you a Piece of Heart and the ability to replay the minigame.

Playing the harp at the Lumpy Pumpkin becomes available after obtaining the Goddess's Harp, and defeating The Imprisoned at the Sealed Grounds for the first time. To start the side quest, travel to the Lumpy Pumpkin and sleep on a bed until night. Talk to Pumm on the counter to get started.

When the minigame starts, you'll notice that the two audience members will wave their hands based on the song's rhythm. Follow Keet, the young man on the left, to match the rhythm of the song.

Strum All the Way

While performing, be sure to use sweeping motions to strum the harp all the way to the left and to the right. This increases the chances of finishing the duet with a "fantastic" feedback from Pumm.
