I have a diatonic Hohner that I haven't played in a loooong time.

I'll bet it's a diatonic! A diatonic harp plays in a certain key, whereas a chromatic harp has all the notes, so you can play in any key. Diatonics are much more common.

Youre right, it is a diatonic. A chromatic sounds awful nice though. Are they more difficult to play?

To be honest with you, I'm not sure. I've never actually played one.

Diatonic is usually just a regular harmonica (ex. 10 hole Marine Band) It has 2 sets of reeds (1 top and 1 bottom)

Chromatic plays all the sharps and flats. It has a button on the side which works a slide It has 4 sets of reeds (2 top and 2 bottom)

I just got a Chromatic, it is much more of a challenge to play. Also more expensive.

I tried to play harmonica, but I kinda got really frustrated in trying to play it well that I just gave up eventually. I'll just stick to my other insturments. But hey I think harmonica is really cool played well.

Don't give up so soon.

I see you are a sax player.
I've heard the old Blues cats call the harmonica a "Mississippi Saxaphone".

What was it you had so much trouble with?:kcool:

Well I am a bass player who plays harp at the same time I FOUND a harp brand call merico on e-bay. You can get 6 keys for around 17.95 or 12 for 36.00. The guy who puts them on thier has them all the time so just take your time bidding and maybe you can get them cheaper. And if you send your money in fast you will get them just as fast because i did. I THINK THEY ARE JUST AS GOOD AS A BLUES HARP. because that used to be the only kind i would use.

harmonica praise songs

I play harp at church ever-so-often, and I'm always searching for more songs. The two songs that come to mind are: "the happy song" and "Jesus is the rock".

Harmonica?

so yea, i'm learning to play the harmonica, and i was wondering if anyone had any tips for learning well. I mess around with it alot, but i dont really know the notes and chords and whatnot. i have an A harp, and all i've found is stuff for c and g. I also will play along with some blues music, and try to work something out... but i'm always just that tiny bit off...
