My dad did that. It was the only instrument he played, and in the car was the only place he played it. He'd play one handed, driving with one eye on the road and the other looking for deer as the countryside passed. He's prob'ly doing the same in Heaven now.I have a few blues harps in a few keys. I also have a Hohner Chromonica 260. Its chromatic. I keep the Chromonica in the car. Waiting at a red light. Waiting for a train. Wife needs to run into a store for a sec. I’m happy waiting in the car. Wailing on a harp. I grab it. Its fun. I find diatonic blues harps easier to play than a Chromonica. I enjoy them all.
The harp crosses to the fifth, the key crosses to the fourth. I post this to remind myself. I don't play very often, and I'm always getting this backward in my mind. Great thread, @Midgetje94Since you already play guitar an easy way to remember which key harp to use for blues/cross harp is this. For simple rock/blues you want your harp to be in the key of the second chord in a I IV V or blues progression.
In other words if the song is in E you want an A harp. Song in G wants a C harp. In A you want a D harp. Key of B wants an E harp andI so on. Good luck!
Yea! I knew we had a few harp players here. Didn’t know how many. But a lot of good points and ideas.
Runaround thing?Chromatic. Yike. That dude that does the runaround song has one.
My new ones are the rockets. They have the best of both worlds. Marine and blues and last twice as long.
