Re: The SlipSlider - a Revolutionary Blues Harp.

Double sided tape would be sufficient. I think it suites better than most of the common glues. (And I certainly would not prefer E6000.) That the tape is easily to remove is a plus too.

Re: Spanish tuning

Hi Karl, thank you very much for the info about the scale on which this tuning is based to. This was a question I had asked me too some times. Just I had forgotten to write it in my first post. That it must have to be any minor could I easily hear. But which one of the many? And that there were only...

Re: The SlipSlider - a Revolutionary Blues Harp.

I guess you must teach your kids quite fast how to play the harmonica. So they must not cry any more about your cutting down their LEGO. :lol:

But anyway - that seems to be a good solution for the grip problem.

Re: Spanish tuning

Hi Karl, thank you for the answer. Just as I presumed. The diagrams below seem to be all correct, only that "B" and "Bb" are confused in one place (A/Bb tuning), which I suppose is due to the difference in German standard notation (AHC) compared to the English/Dutch notation (ABC), where German B is...

Re: Natural Minor Lucky 13's and New Case?

Is it bad luck to own 13 Lucky 13's? (sorry!) Bob I don't think so. And as it looks, it certainly will not remain like this. ;) To make them in minor keys as well could not be that difficult for the manufacturer's logistics. And above all, you might as well be hanged for a sheep as a lamb. Why not ...

Spanish tuning

Some 30 years ago or so I happened to be at Hohner's in Trossingen and purchased there a Pro Harp in so called "Spanish tuning". Nobody could tell me how to play it. And after the one or the other try I failed to find out how to play something pleasant on it. The harp went into the darkest part of a...

Re: Pentatonic harmonica

... Seydel ... Easy Third which was CEG DFA This is a very fine tuning. I play it too. It is also known as "Do-It"-tuning or " D ale's O pen I rish T uning" (after its inventor Dale King). And in fact, I use it preferrably on Irish tunes like reels and jigs. I have a question concerning this tuning...

Re: Future of this Forum?

Hi all, and specially a question to the administration of this forum: Does the new privacy regulation of the EC concern this forum too? On one hand, the UK is not any more member of the EC, at least within a short time. On the other hand, 1. the forum does offer content to users in the EC, 2. there ...

Re: Saws for cutting reed plates?

I think this looks like a nice small tool. Maybe good for some small and precise serial cuttings, as well as for mitre cuts. But since I have made not so good experience with a freehand mini circular saw, I would prefer a mini angle grinder with ultra thin blades (*) for cutting reed plates, at leas...
