Half-valved PowerChromatic Lucky 13 meets Overblow Richter 10-hole

Sandy Weltman and I have completed another trans-Atlantic video duet. This time the tune is a classic of early jazz, 'The Royal Garden Blues', recorded by Bix Beiderbecke and many other greats over the years. It's a fun showcase for our different styles and types of harmonica:

It's not that difficult actually... Some info to help:

I'm using a Lucky 13 PowerChromatic in D. First half of the tune is in E, second half is in A. That should get you started 🤗

Thanks. I’m still at the beginner’s place of learning the bends. After I get comfortable with that basic technique I’ll feel more ready to try that type of tune. I’m happy to hear harmonica on a traditional jazz tune. I had wondered if there was anyone playing that repertoire on harmonica. Now I see and hear that someone is.

Thanks again for the video.

Very nice.
It is easy to hear and to see that both of you had a lot of fun.
