Lucky 13

Hi all
I’m looking for a reputable tech that can replace a broken reed on my Lucky 13 PR. Hopefully close to St. Louis Missouri, USA
Any help would be appreciated

Enjoyment

Have you ever found that playing a tune in one key is enjoyable and you look forward to playing it, but when played in another key it is almost annoying and even labor some to get through? I love maids of mitchelstown in G, however when I play in D —-uggh. What a drastic difference, it makes in my m...

Reels

Is it just me or do reels just want to make you play faster? So far I’ve learned Crowley’s reel, and although I don’t claim to play anything very well yet, it seems to want to be played faster. Now I’ve added the Kerry reel into my playing and again I feel like the tune wants me to go faster! The Ke...

Memorization

I imagine as u progress ur able to play by ear, but as I play now I find myself memorizing the tablature, listening to it played a lot and then slowly I begin adding some groove or rhythm. Don’t ...

Re: Irish music book cover??

Okay I thought I would give a report on our Christmas song! My first time playing in front of anybody! I think I reported earlier that the song was to be “Christmas in Killarney”. We started off together okay, with my uncle on guitar and me on harmonica. Then my aunt began to clap!!!! Oh noooo that ...

Re: Irish music book cover??

I’ve been working out of it for several months now, but I always thought of it as my book of drills such as exercises. In my mind that’s the message I assumed u we’re sending.

I of course had no answer for him, so we’re curious now why a...

Re: beginner harp for irish/folk

I have nothing but good things to say about my lucky! I was upset when the reed stopped but it will be up and going again soon I hope. The sleydel session steel I’m using now is also very nice I think, just a big difference in feel since I started with the long 13 hole harp.
