Re: Lucky 13 in PowerBender, PowerDraw & Paddy Richter

I think Power Chromatic would be nice on the L13.
Not ready to do one yet tho . . .

Re: Inputting Harmonica Tunings

Code: Select all

Hole	1	2	3	4	5	6	7	8	9	10
Blow	C#	E	G	B	D	F#	A	D	F#	A
Draw	D	F#	A	C#	E	G	B	C#	E	G
This is a tuning I came up with, Richter on top and circular on the bottom.
I call it New World since that's where I am from :lol:
Originally developed on a 365, it would fit nicely on a Lucky 13!

Re: Lucky 13 in PowerBender, PowerDraw & Paddy Richter

I have retuned the L13 to solo a couple of times, using a C and retuning to start on E3.

Suzuki had a very fertile period of development and innovation for about 5 years <snip> Just the low Manjis since
Don't forget the SSCH, that's an innovation!

Re: New Models from the Big Manufacturers

Nothing new from Suzuki lately, at least that I know of from working in the warehouse from which products imported into the US are shipped to vendors. I am, of course, the repair tech, but not much work, for whatever reason. I'd really like to see some superlow Manji harps, they only go down to C3 a...

Power Chromatic

Hi everyone, I want to hear from players who are using this tuning. Do you mostly play in the key of the tuning (the major scale) or mixolydian (the key of the draw chord)? I use it in both, as well as the Dorian mode (relative minor of the blow chord). I know there is at least one chromatic player ...
