A bout three years back I got a cheap Gold Cup brand harmonica with a book of tabbed songs with the sheet music under it, stuff like Camptown Races and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. I loved it, partly because I liked being able to play music, and partly because I liked the fact that the tabs made me feel like I had my own little language. :lol:

I put down the harp for a while because I decided to learn guitar...which made me decide to learn keyboard...and I read in a book somewhere about the penny whistle and decided to give that a try...and when looking through the info on penny whistles I saw something on harmonica and couldn't wait to give the harmonica another go. (So now I am learning Guitar, Keyboard, Penny Whistle, and Harmonica) :shock:

So I bought a Honer Bluesband and a Harmonica for Dummies book, and put together a notebook with all my old papers. While looking through harmonica websites I found this forum, and hope that I will be able to find it of some use.
Any advice will be appreciated!

Thanks for the sites! :D I like Harptabs.com

I've been having trouble with my 2 draw. :x I am pretty sure it's not me because all the blows work and all the other draws work. :? I opened it up and there was no debris in it, I keep it in a hard case. Any ideas would be much appreciated!

if you are just learning, odds are that the problem IS you.
2 and 3 draw are infamous for being difficult reeds.

take it slow.
breath thru the harmonica.

Dreamer, Look at John Broecker's answer to my Apr 22 "2 Hole Draw" question in "Beginner's Questions."
Also look at "Playing #2 & #3 Hole Draw" under "Tech. Info. & Advice" under "Harmonicas" in Hohner's site: www.hohnerusa.com.
Also take peek at "How Do I Get A Good Sound Out Of 2 Hole Draw . . . . I Know It's Broken . . . ." at beginner'sharmonica_html on Adam Gussow's site www.modernbluesharmonmmica.com
I'm a couple of month's into learning and had the same problem. hope this helps, good luck, Glenn.
