Thread Name: Harmonica Players Unite!
Subject: RE: Harmonica Players Unite!
I play Lee Oskars almost exclusively: Blues harps for real blues and first position playing, Melody Makers (G harp has complete G scales--played cross harp), and natural minors. I have Melody makers in all five keys (C,D,E,G,A)--but don't like the C much. G and A are the ones I use most. I have Lee Oskar blues harps in C and G, Hohners in Bb, F, C, D, G, A; Lee Oskars in Am, Dm, and Em. Also a few double reed 21 hole Lee Oskar tremolo harps which I almost never play anymore (once they were the backbone of my playing). My favorite players are Sonny Terry, Norton Buffalo, Charlie McCoy... --seed
