Re: "Extra High Octane" blues tuning for 13-hole harp

A slight twist on this would be to have the four draw be a G4 (i.e. an enharmonic of the three blow) instead of an F4 . This would make runs up and down the G blues scale much faster and easier. That would wreck its role as a b7th for the inverted Gmaj; however, there is already a G7 farther up the ...

"Extra High Octane" blues tuning for 13-hole harp

NAME: "EXTRA HIgh Octane" blues tuning for 13-hole harp BASIC CONCEPT: In recent months I have devised a number of tunings which feature “the” minor hexatonic blues scale. A few days ago it dawned on me that, in doing so, my thinking was restricted to the I chord (my default for this is Gmaj) of a ...

ADDENDUM #2:
The draw note of that added channel 4 (see ADDENDUM #1) should be an F. This would make the b7th of the Gmaj of 1-3 draw.

Re: "High Octane" blues tuning for 12-hole harp

ADDENDUM #1: If a new chamber/hole were inserted between the existing channels 3 and 4, then the new channel 4 blow tone could be a Bb. This would give the Cmaj chord of channels 1-3 a b7th, and therefore ALL chords of the I-IV-V progression could be played as 7th chords. Pretty cool. This would ma...

Re: "High Octane" blues tuning for 12-hole harp

One day later, I believe this to be an improvement. Note that we now have a second Gmaj chord and its b7th.

Re: Blues tuning **with 7ths** for 10-hole harp

Four posts above this one, I explained that the overall tuning of this Subject could be a reentrant tuning . By adding one more channel/hole to the left and also one more to the right side of the harp (for a total of 12 channels and 24 reeds), it's easy see this concept adapted to fit Brendan's Seyd...

Re: Blues tuning for 12-hole "diatonic" harp

To elaborate on the post just above: The overall tuning in this Subject can be accomplished using two Seydel Big Sixes mounted on Brendan's Seydel Twin Big-Six Comb (at http://www.brendan-power.com/combs-diatonic.php ). This would permit the left octave and right octave to be in the same register, i...
