Comparison of three tunings in the context of playing blues

MAIN IDEA: To compare three tunings in the context of playing blues. DETAILS: This analysis comes with its own set of rules/constraints/assumptions/caveats. All analyses do. If a person wants to look at things in a different way, they certainly may do so and I for one would be happy to learn from an...

Re: OVERBLOWING - Where to From Here?

According to Posner and Strike’s research on the conditions necessary for conceptual change, there must be: (1) dissatisfaction with existing conceptions; (2) a new conception must be intelligible; (3) a new conception must appear initially plausible; and (4) a new conception should have the potenti...

Fully chromatic tuning for slideless 10-hole “diatonic” harp (or “Black Badge” tuning)

NAME: "Black badge tuning". (Can you see why?) BASIC CONCEPT: I think the title of this Topic says it all. DISCLAIMER/DISCLOSURE: I already used this octave in another topic called "Twelve-hole slide harp with 2.3 chromatic octaves, 14 different chords and easy diatonic play." Also, I am quite paran...

Comparison of four "slideless" tunings

BASIC IDEA: To gather, compare and analyze four "slideless" tunings in terms of their diatonic, chromatic and chordal capabilities. I encourage forum members to share their thoughts on the relative merits of these AND related tunings. 2017-09-21 (7).png 2017-09-21 (2).png 2017-09-21 (3).png

Twelve-hole slide harp with 3 PowerChrom octaves, 14 chords, and easy diatonic and octaves play

NAME: Not yet sure. Thinking about “Goldschmidt/Sowards Gen. 3 with PowerChrom octaves” BASIC CONCEPT: In the original “Goldschmidt/Sowards” tuning, I distributed the twelve semitones of an octave among three banks/layers of reeds, and among four channels/holes of the harp. There were no missing sem...

Happy to share formatted MS Word docs

A forum member pm'ed and asked if I would share with them the original "spreadsheet" for a tuning that I diagrammed. That way they could fiddle with it and explore their own tunings. I'm delighted to do this for any forum member, but understand that I use MS Word, not a ss. Just pm me the name of a ...

Blues tuning **with 7ths** for 12-hole harp

NAME: Not yet sure. Maybe "7th Heaven Blue Dozen"? BASIC CONCEPT: For blues in G, it sure would be nice to have the full I, IV and V chords, as well as their dom7 variants, as well as at least one full and proper G minor hexatonic "blues" scale. The "standard" Richter diatonic harp lacks many of the...
