I haven't played in the snow like that in years!
Now that I live in Florida I probably won't any more. I miss it a little bit, but in no way miss morning commutes on ice and snow.
I do miss winter camping and my snow shoes, I kept a pair of modified bear paws just in case.... my wife wouldn't let me hang my favorite long Ojibwa shoes on the wall, so I gave them to a friend up in Michigan.
Other keys too.
If you mean a richter tuned tremolo, the Hohner Echo is laid out like that.
Just catching up here,
Great stuff spider. Thanks for posting.
I have also lost posts and large parts of posts from my iPad ( my other computer is a 12 year old laptop that doesn't get out much).
I do not think there is a character limit, but it always happens if I try to stick an emoticon thing in ( no smiles or happy faces or pictures). I believe some punctuation does it too. And if you accidentally hit the symbol to the left of the letter A, it looks like a U turn sign. Everything gets deleted.
PS. Sending someone tabs and a video must be a lot of work but is a very generous way to give a beginner a leg up!
I can't even keep track of one harp! You guys are amazing.
The Asian tremolo players often use two a half step apart for access to a full chromatic scale, I saw a YouTube video of a woman burning through a stack of harps like it was easy. Kind of crazy looking, but amazing . She never seemed to miss a beat either.
I tried to reply, messages lost in space I guess.
I may have things you might want to trade.

Or just put a message in a bottle and throw it in the Kissimmee. I might find it on the lake or in the swamp further south.
When i was a kid I used to listen to a friend (old guy) play a shakuhachi.
He played meditation music, and some folk tunes. Pretty cool. I'll have to try and see if I can play something like that on a harp. Shouldn't be too bad, pentatonics for the most part I think. Maybe...
I just started learning to play Bass harp (and I'm from Michigan) so in a while this would be perfect for me!
I suppose in the meantime I could rig a way to run my iPod through the input and use it as a speaker listen to some great Bass, and play along tracks....
I am cash short right now but if it doesn't sell by spring I could be tempted.
I will be up north in April or May at UCF, and may be in the St. Cloud region sooner.
Is there anything you want in trade? I have weird harmonica related stuff.
Polyphonia anyone? Wood covers?
Or the tone of the olive?
Go for it!
You earn your luck. I wish I could have snagged that Baritone, and ever since you turned us on to your little system I've been surfing Amazon.ca and Amazon USA.
My son the trumpet player has been playing a keyboard a lot lately, and ours has broken keys and it sounds lousy, and I'm kind of a crabby old guy who prefers pure acoustics, also being a free-Reed addict (like the rest of you) I added melodica and melodion to my search strings. No luck on baritone tremolo, and no luck getting his melodion, so I bought some harmonica tools and and a Suzuki student 32 melodion for my son from Rockin Ron. He called, said he didn't have any in stock and all the Suzuki guys were at NAMM so it would be at least a week before he could ship. I said OK that's fine, but his birthday was coming so I went back to the net. Bang! A Suzuki Bass melodion for 1/3 the normal price. Pulled the trigger, and then got home. The student 32 Melodion was shipped. I swear Ron must have shipped it before I ordered it. Maybe even before I thought about buying it. Any the Melodion is pretty cool and is the price of a bandmaster. The bass is sweet, but too big to hide with my harmonicas, so it lives in my file cabinet and I am using it to finally try to learn music and chords.
Awesome catch. I went and checked and you are right, the price went back up.
Danny and Wally Peterman go over the Chromatics.
I'm not sure about the diatonics.
Also, I believe a few Chromatics will be for sale after a retuning by Gnarley.
I think he is going to make a couple of Orchestra tuned 12 hole harps.
The Easttop Chromatics are amazing for the price.
Just keep them clean and they will serve you well.
Check with Danny at newharmonica and see what he charges to ship to Canada.
His are not the same as others, they will have been inspected and improved before shipping so are worth a premium.
Interest is here, but I've been too busy to play with harps lately.
I'm at work now but will definitely check out your sound cloud post (if I can figure out how!)
I have 4 dogs, so don't see too many cats.
One of my dogs will cry when I play. I don't even have to play, she will cry if I pick up a harmonica. But she will follow me around the yard or come into whatever room I am in to make her displeasure known. One seems to like it and will sometimes howl along if I sustain a note for a long time. The other two just ignore me.
They are kind of like the rest of my family, my son says "that sounds cool"
My daughter says "you are either hitting the wrong notes or that thing is out of tune"
And my wife says " can you do that some other time "
Both of you were great. I'm purely a pucker single note player, so aim for a solo JD like Jeremy did.
Sarge just makes me jealous. Always amazed by what he does.
And Sarge, would you rather be a First Sgt. Or a Master Sgt?
