Hey fellow harp players! I thought it might be fun if there was a topic exclusively for sharing clips of any harp playing that you guys/gals are working on! As well as an explanation of the harp/tuning/key/tune info etc....after all the only thing more fun than retuning a harmonica is playing the finished product!

Perhaps no one will be interested but I hope to hear what you other muscicians are working on! :D

Here is a video of me playing "Kitchenaire" from the awesome album, "Lament for the 21st Century".

Here I play it on a Key of C, Hohner CX-12 that I put in Bb P.C. tuning. Im playing with the button in (mostly) so the home key of the tune is B major!

Brendan, I couldn't figure out what harp or tuning you are using on your album....doubtless it's much more expressive and soulful than my rendition here BUT at the very least, this video demonstrates the versatility of power chromatic tuning.

Thanks Paris - I'd completely forgotten writing 'Kitchenaire'!

You play it well! And have inspired me to try and remember it myself :-)

Glad I could help haha! Love that descending 5ths progression of dom7th chords in the middle there! Do you happen to remember what harp you used for the recording? Sounds to me like some sort of X Reed set up.

I posted this before but I thought I'd put it in the 'proper' thread.

Here's a clip of me trying to play Brendan's awesome solos from hesitation blues with Andrew White. Transcribing these solos and working on playing them has really helped me get familiar with PC tuning and its fun! A little rough around the edges but you guys get the idea!

Played in the key(s) of D/Bm on a G - P.C.

I wish to submit a short italian song we arranged for three harmonicas, two are conventional chromatics and the other one is a slider bass that Brendan arranged for me using his twin system. Hope that you can have an idea of its potentiality.
Here is the soundcloud link:
Montagne Addio - Farewell Mountain

Pasquinelli - Armoniche

Paris from memory, I think it was a PowerChromatic in A I used for Kitchenaire.

Thanks Gianandrea, sounding good!

@Paris (Thumbs up)

Great thread. It will definitely give us deeper understandings of these turnings.
