My "morning" harmonica routine is the same as always. I'm practicing an "I" song and I'm practicing a song of the month.
After that, my day goes to hell and I can't get a damn thing recorded and I'm posting very little (although I read the forum several times a day, everyday).
It's not really a bad thing...I've hooked up with my old girlfriend from the early 1980s and that's a good thing. Unfortunately, she's demanding about 4 hours of my time every damn day. I'm hoping she starts to get a bit bored of seeing me so I can record and post the songs I've prepared .
I noticed Andy T seemed to disappear immediately after we jokingly criticized a singer in a video he linked to. I sure hope that wasn't the trigger...we were just kidding Andy!
I've been practicing a workable chromatic version of On the Sunny Side of the Street but I regret that I may not get it recorded in time to post it as an October song.
I've spent several days carving this years pumpkin crop (I grow my own for Halloween). In a few minutes I have to repair some of my mother's Halloween decorations and tonight I have to man the door for the trick-or-treaters.
I WILL record and POST the song...but it may show up later in the "On the Button" thread.
And I don't know how to play it!
Same story: Expensive harp at a crazy discount. How about a Suzuki SSCH-56 Chord 56 for $135.00US.
There is no question that Suzuki makes the most beautiful harps of any major maker. I was a bit surprised by the appearance of the harp. Based on pictures on the net and the Suzuki brochure, I expected the covers would have a slightly matte finish and be more of a "wheat" shade. The Suzuki Sirius has matte covers. In fact, the covers on the Chord 56 are a mirror polished, warm smokey grey. Happily, this is literally the BEST finish that I have EVER seen on a harp. Even the best harps often display some swirl marks or microscopic scratches. The finish on the Chord 56 is as fine as an optical mirror...nobody dropped this at the factory .
Having more than a little experience with Suzukis, I check to make sure this harp came with standard new Suzuki packaging. As it should, it included the two pieces of anti-corrosion paper sealed with the harp in plastic to protect the silver plated mouthpiece from tarnish.
Honestly Keith, nobody is concerned about anything that may have been accidentally deleted. Don't worry about. It's not worth getting yourself upset.
This is a harmonica website...it's supposed to be light and fun. So some links and a few comments got deleted... big deal . It's nothing that can't be reposted if people are so inclined. Seriously, I never even noticed a thread was missing until you apologized for it!
Just let it slide.
We aren't bothered.
You shouldn't be bothered either.

I did a chromatic "H" song earlier and here is a diatonic "H": House of the Rising Sun.
I wanted to use a Suzuki Overdrive just because I haven't recorded with it for awhile but, it was a bit awkward...people familiar with this harp know it has has a number of "finger holes" used to control bending but it was hard to cup the mic without accidentally blocking a hole once in awhile.
I decided to use my Tombo AeroReed in "G". It's a real nice harp.
I must say, this song has more 10 hole draws than all the songs I've ever recorded combined .
Keith, you're playing one of the H songs I want to post.
But I'll be doing a diatonic version.
I have my Hs practiced (one diatonic, one chromatic). I need to find time to get them recorded, edited and uploaded...but they will be coming.
