Re: Lucky 13 Paddy Richter and Tequila

Nice
Thanks for posting it.
I’ve tried a few tunings, all have been my favorite at one time or another but I keep going back to Paddy Richter, for all kinds of music. It just feels natural somehow, even with the silly upper octave.

Re: THE ENTERTAINER - Played on Lucky 13 in PowerChromatic Tuning

More lessons in general would be great.
Maybe done in blocks?
Chinese music for the slide diatonic ?
Irish music for the slide diatonic ?
Both for the PC?
Or pull a few tunes from Unadorned with lessons....
Great stuff so far, keep it coming.

Re: Harmonicas with Modular Reedplates

Are you also still considering doing something similar with accordion reeds?

Get well soon. My energy dropped to around zero between the dehydration and the flagyl, but once my system was clean recovery was quick.

Re: THE ENTERTAINER - Played on Lucky 13 in PowerChromatic Tuning

If there is a way you can show the jianpu on the loopable midi files that would be something!
I’m tempted to purchase the lesson even though I don’t play PC.
Maybe I’ll make one.

Nice!
Great playing.
Thanks
I like the idea of your instruction pack including jianpu notation. That makes it useful for transferring the lesson to any tuning or instrument. And jianpu is so logical it’s easier to learn than tab or standard notation.

If Brendan doesn’t have any you might be able to fit a Hohner 260 slide on it.

Re: Harmonicas with Modular Reedplates

I would be interested in one that used accordion reeds. If you can make a comb for those, I’ll buy one. For a regular diatonic with regular reeds, probably not. Solder and a file get the job done for me. Now, if I could chose to have all the chambers long, and put Seydel or Hohner Low reeds all the ...

Re: Any news?

I like the cover idea, possibly incorporating a pair of tension bars. I’m going to look for a cheap harp and chop it up. I carve wooden covers, mostly for chromatics, but often for diatonics. I could probably make one that can provide the pressure to a bar that can hold the plates in. If so, you mig...

Re: Any news?

If the comb can be simplified and printed with maybe a bar to hold the plates down and the plates can be produced in bulk at the required frequency I would think this would be a very flexible method. Just buy the comb and the plates and then mix and match at will. It would be a lot of fun and simpli...
