THE ENTERTAINER - Played on Lucky 13 in PowerChromatic Tuning

Here is my version of Scott Joplin's classic 'The Entertainer', played on the new Lucky 13 in PowerChromatic Tuning:

Nice!
Great playing.
Thanks
I like the idea of your instruction pack including jianpu notation. That makes it useful for transferring the lesson to any tuning or instrument. And jianpu is so logical it’s easier to learn than tab or standard notation.

I agree! I think harmonica players should adopt it as the preferred notation for our instrument, which comes in all 12 keys. Far more logical and easy to use than standard notes.

I wish I'd known about it a long time ago when I lived in London and was doing regular sessions. I made my own cod version, but Jianpu has it all nicely worked out. It has an interesting history:

If there is a way you can show the jianpu on the loopable midi files that would be something!
I’m tempted to purchase the lesson even though I don’t play PC.
Maybe I’ll make one.

I have moved towards using scale note number instead of hole number when working with various tunings.

I'm going to look into this jianpu
