Re: Spanish tuning

Been reading up on the Spanish tuning. It seems it is based on the Spanish Gypsy scale, a.k.a. the Phrygian dominant scale. Other names are the Jewish scale, or Spanish Phrygian scale. That is, the six notes on the harp that form the two chords E - G# - B and F - A - C, respectively, has a missing ...

Re: Is there a public calendar for Brendan Power?

I would think too, that this were nice.
If other artists would like to do as well.

If it is interesting for anyone or not depends on the country or continent, where the event is to happen of course.

Re: Pentatonic harmonica

Thank you for the answer. It was the same answer that I got in the case of the other tuning. (It was the Spanish tuning.) Seems to be a principle of the construction of a harmonica tuning layout in common, not depending on which type of tuning there is intended. Once a certain tuning works in one ke...

Re: The Dingle Angle Tuning

Just what I wanted to say. There are really good reasons for both of it. Just depending on the tune, the rhythm, the genre, the personal style and whatever else. And every time I have tested and practised a new tuning or a new type of harp excessively, I return to others for those purposes, where th...

Re: The SlipSlider - a Revolutionary Blues Harp.

Dont know if its useful but i did it in small steps. Yes. I think it is useful. I made the same experience with many different things. Some examples: 1. Chromatical harmonica: After having put them aside for decades, I started with my rhythmic polyphonic style on Richter tuned chrom (a special tuni...

Re: The Dingle Angle Tuning

Hihihi ... It's not all times that any special tuning works out best. For some tunes just a simple Richter will do best. ;) It's not to forget about amidst all the fine new stuff anyway. And at least - the Richters all of us most probably have on-hand in all keys - or at least in most of the common ...

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.
