Shifted/Inverted Bebop tuning for non-slide AND SLIDE harps

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!

I wish to point out some stock harmonicas which can be re-tuned to Inverted Bebop:

* virtually any solo-tuned slide chromatic harp
* the Tombo #3624 School/Solo Tremolo
* the Seydel Fanfare-S Tremolo
* the Hohner Tremolo Soloist
* the Easttop Brendan Power Lucky 13 Solo
* the Hohner Marine Band 364S Solo
* the Seydel Orchestra S
* the Seydel Solist Pro Steel - Solo
* the Brendan Power Slide Diatonic Mk2 (BP, is this correct?)
* the Seydel Sampler


If folks make me aware of other options, I will update this list accordingly. I welcome your input.

This chart shows 24 variations of Inverted Bebop: 12 sharp-slide keys and 12 flat-slide keys.

Each scale's tonics are shown in boldface and a slightly larger font size.

Each major diatonic scale is accompanied by a repeating "extra note" which is two semitones lower than the tonic and is located directly above each tonic. These "extra notes" are shown in parentheses ( ).
