Re: Seydel Nonslider

Any ideas or thoughts on this new model? It seems to only be sold with solo tuning, as for now, but I can't help but to think it's features would be much more useful in almost any other tuning. What kind of tuning do you think would benefit from this design? Richter with sharps? Tune the two rows t...

Re: Introducing the Wedin Chromatic – folk music ornaments in many keys

However, in my experience, it's harder to maintain good rhythm when you have a sequence of blow or draw notes all together. When it happens in an Irish tune for example, I have to concentrate much harder to maintain the groove than if the notes are in a blow/draw alternating sequence. I often need ...

Danke.

Re: Introducing the Wedin Chromatic – folk music ornaments in many keys

Even if physically turning the slide is easy, trying to keep various configurations in mind while looking at something already different can be challenging. I know I struggle and need to focus to keep track of the sharp slide version, and I'm already pretty comfortable with my original! That was, w...

Re: Introducing the Wedin Chromatic – folk music ornaments in many keys

I think if I used C minor scale i.e. Eb major, this must fit a little bit better or not? Many klezmer and balkan style tunes looks almost like Eb major. I did not yet thoroughly study all this stuff and maybe did not yet understand everything so far. But Cm / Eb is a key that certainly will be suit...

Re: Introducing the Wedin Chromatic – folk music ornaments in many keys

Question to anyone : Should I try to emphasise the sharp slide version more over the flat slide version? I use the flat slide, but I've started wondering if this might just add to the weirdness of the tuning and scare people of. Or is it so strange already that a flat slide doesn't matter? I do thi...

Re: Introducing the Wedin Chromatic – folk music ornaments in many keys

Thank you for sharing the charts and the large amount of informations. This is quite a lot. And it needs careful reading and thinking before any opinion is possible. Btw, it has been a good idea to share the sound samples first. They rise the motivation to try to dig this heavy stuff. :D dear greeti...

Re: Introducing the Wedin Chromatic – folk music ornaments in many keys

My ears say "YES". :D
Now I can try to play this with a common chromatic or with a slide diatonic.
For to think about a new chrom in Wedin style or maybe even retune any other to this - if possible - a layout of the notes would be helpful.

Re: isomorphic harmonica?

Although Augmented/Wholetone is theoretically an excellent tuning in terms of pure logic, in practical playing terms it's a bit challenging. I don't know of anyone who's really done much significant playing on it. Aha, sort of nerd solution? :lol: I deduced it from your diminished diatonic. That's ...
