Re: A family of new modded-Richter tunings

In the 10-hole tuning just above, the 1 draw could be raised by one semitone. This change would forfeit the vi chord, but it would provide the I chord with a septimal minor 7th note.

Re: A family of new modded-Richter tunings

Inside the 13-hole tuning just above is a 10-hole tuning waiting to get out.

Re: A family of new modded-Richter tunings

This next one is pretty much the same thing as the tuning just above, but with an added vi chord (in this case, E minor).

Re: A family of new modded-Richter tunings

The greedy chugger in me wants it all …. to be able blow/draw chug alternately (i.e. without moving the mouth position) between: --the bVII chord and the I chord (e.g. between Fmaj and Gmaj), and --the I chord and the IV chord (e.g. between Gmaj and Cmaj), and --the V and the IV (e.g. between Dmaj a...

Re: Lucky 13 powerchromatic vs Seydel Soloist pro 12

I own both models, though not in that tuning. In my experience, the Lucky 13 is much louder and more responsive than the Solist Pro 12. YMMV.

Re: A family of new modded-Richter tunings

Three of the four tunings just above this post start with a vi chord (shown here as E minor) in the draw layer. If the 1 draw of those tunings was raised by one semitone, it becomes the minor 7th note for the I chord (shown here as a G major).

Both options are good.

Re: A family of new modded-Richter tunings

Looking at the diagram that is two posts above this one, I thought: "That's okay. But I hate giving up those septimal minor 7ths for the IV and V chords."

And then I thought ....

With further simplification ....

If we now lower the 1 draw by two semitones, we will completely circle back to this point:

Re: A family of new modded-Richter tunings

From my post of September 13 , I reiterate: Sometimes evolution involves simplification rather than elaboration (think: lizards --> snakes). Please take a look at the diagram in the post just above. Then take a look at this post from thirteen months ago: http://www.brendan-power.com/forum/viewtopic....

Re: A family of new modded-Richter tunings

All of the tunings in this Topic thus far share the ancestral trait of containing nearly the left half of standard Richter diatonic tuning . The tuning of this September 26th post is a departure from all of those. In this tuning, even the left half is different from Richter tuning . Like the tunings...
