Third Hand Harmonica - Demo for that harp playing dude known as Buggy

Demo of a 20 hole Chromatic harmonica gifted to me by Myra, a nice lady at church. Myra got it at a Good Will store and tried to play it some. So it is third hand at least.

Thanks, PS.  Ignorance may be bliss.  I just pick it up and play it without much thought that it plays not quite the same.

I never could play the chromatic harp (well let's face it, I can barely play the diatonic harp LOL), seems like you're pretty good at it unc.

Thanks, Danny. It plays almost like a regular diatonic for melody harp.  Probably not good for cross harp.  

Ha, Nancy.  That is cute as heck

WowzersMeowzers  that has a great sound thank you to Myra...hope you play it a bunch U~John...this was fun! Meow^..^

great sounding harp. I have heard that a chromatic is harder to play than a diatonic, I found one at an antique store for 25.00

Thanks, RTZ,  I agree on the concertina sound.  See Dave's explanation of that.

Ha it was handed to me after church,   I took it and played a verse of Amazing Grace.   No washing!

Thanks, Dave and Andries.  Good info, Dave.  Yup on the jolly Andries - the tune more so than me.

Jolly blend John !

Sounds nice Uncle. The warble in the two notes played simultaneous is from the two reeds tuned slightly apart. That makes the warble. It’s the accordion sound you refer to. Many accordions with double reeds are tuned like that. French “cafe” accordion tunes use that sound. I learned this from Joe Serniak, He is an accordion repair man in Duluth that I was almost apprenticed to many years ago. He led a band called the Duluth Polka Dots back in the day. I learned a lot from Joe.
