Harmonica in ITM
I’m primarily a fiddle player, but lately for kicks I picked up some Harmonicas to play tunes on. I was inspired to do this by a man I saw in Boston (at the Greenbriar) who plays tunes very nicely. As much as I can recall he had played another instrument but unfortunatly lost both hands & picked up the harmonica. I’ve been trying to track down leads for some instruction on finer points of playing but have only come up with very entry level instruction books. Most of these books have tablature & just tell you which notes to play (Namely Glen Weisser’s Books).
I was curious if anyone knew of any books that explain ornaments & other technique. Right now I’ve got standard diatonics in C,G,D & A and also a Hohner Chrometta in G which has great volume but is not as “fast” due to it’s larger holes & doubled tonics. I’ve been doing a couple of Polkas & some Mazurkas as I’m new to the instrument & those seem to come easiest.
Thanks in advance
