GUEST,Arnie at work Any help for a new harmonica player? (98* d) RE: Any help for a new harmonica player? 01 Apr 08


A useful tip regarding cleaning is to tap out the harmonica on your knee after every play. This stops excess moisture building up on the reeds and keeps it useable for a bit longer. I learned to play a 'gob-iron' from my father and I think my first real tune was 'Oh when the Saints come marching in' which is reasonably easy in either G or C. Some guitars players accompany themselves on a harp using a neck brace but this does mean that you can't use your hands to get the 'wow wow' effect. However, that's for the future Tracey!

Good luck

Arnie
