Brendan Power attends Swedish Harp Meet in September

Since we are a few Swedes here I thought I'd share the program for this year's Harp Meet where Brendan is scheduled to lead in total three two hour workshops: http://harpmeet.se/evenemang/harpmeet-2019.html Joel Andersson and Filip Jers also figure in the program. Previous years the event have been ...

Re: Left hand harmonicas?

I just realised we might be making this more complicated than it needs to be. We use the terms 'right handed' and 'left handed' to refer to people with different dominant hands, but when applied to instruments and other tools the terms usually refer to the hand that the instrument is intended to be ...

Re: Left hand harmonicas?

I do believe the hand you choose to hold the harmonica makes a difference. I do not believe some ways are wrong and others are right. 1. Concerning the holding of a harmonica and cupping, hand wahwah and similar hand technics it is fully irrelevant, if one is using the right hand or left hand, respe...

Re: Modal mixture slide harp

This is an interesting idea. I've thought about a similar mode changing slide myself, but not in the context of modal Richter tunings: https://www.brendan-power.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=275#p1707 In the language of your post, instead of switching between major and minor in the same key the firs...

Re: Introducing the GASKET-VALVE System

Good news bad news on the Gasket-Valves, it seems! Glad you like yours Edvin, but sorry to hear you're having issues Lizzy. What do you mean by the valves sounding? I'm overall happy with my purchase, and I hope to buy more after some more experimenting with how to best make use of them and how to ...

Re: Introducing the GASKET-VALVE System

I received my gasket valves earlier this week, but late nights at work, moving in a new room mate and travelling have kept me from trying them until just now. My first reaction after putting them in was WOW! Such volume! I suppose this is what an airtight harp feels like! The valved bends work reall...

Re: First position aeolian natural minor custom tuning.

Very interesting, however it seems that people at Suzuki are selling some other kind of tuning. Their C natural minor tuning has both G and G# on the same harp. It could be some kind of Dorian+Aeolian equivalent of Lydian+Ionian "Country Tuning". Their natural minor (CNm) is just the tuning you des...

Harmonica under water(?) :)

A friend and colleague asked this morning during breakfast: Does a harmonica work under water, and if not what does it take for it do so? The question came from a Facebook group, where nobody apparently had an answer. What complicates the question considerably is that water has very different acoust...

Re: PowerChromatic realization

David: yes, I was talking about a PowerChromatic in G, starting on A blow: AB. CD. EF#. GA. etc That's an interesting grading system Edvin. What are your criteria for 'good' and 'very good'? I'm assuming you mean something like 'ease of playing' or 'flow'. Here's a video of a PowerChromatic in G go...
