“Cumin Bob FiG CuD” tuning for 12-hole harp

Anything apart from the two mainstream default harmonicas (Solo-tuned fully-valved chromatic, and un-valved Richter 10-hole diatonic). Alternate tunings, different construction, new functionality, interesting old designs, wishful-thinking... whatever!

“Cumin Bob FiG CuD” tuning for 12-hole harp

NAME: “Cumin Bob FiG CuD” tuning for 12-hole harp

BASIC CONCEPT:
The original "Cumin Bob" tuning was designed especially for single-note and octave-split play. This is basically the same thing, except that it is built on a 12-hole format, and four useful chords occupy the last five chambers. All four notes in chambers 9 and 11 can be tuned to ET -14 cents.

In most of my previous "blues" tunings, I set the important chords on the left and any single-note areas on the right. This tuning is a reverse of that pattern.

WHEN/HOW: February of 2018.
