my harmonica evolution
Hi everyone. I've been having fun reading everyone else's contributions,
so I had to write something.
I started playing when I was 16 on a trip to Switzerland. My cousin,
who plays guitar, brought along a cheapo Huang Star Performer. We
would trade off playing while riding on the train through the Swiss
Anyways, I kept playing (for about 5 years now). I started off using
Huangs and various Hohners. I liked Special 20's for a while, but now
I use almost exclusively Lee Oskar harps. I think they are easier
to play, and easier to get weird bends like bending on a blow note, etc.
I have a Roland cube amp which I really like. It has a wide range and
I think it produces a cleaner sound than your average guitar amp. I use
a cheapo Shure mic that kind of sucks, but it was free, and it's all
I haven't had much experience with bands. Some of my friends play
guitar, and we jam from time to time. There are also occaisional
blues jam sessions in Santa Barbara which are a lot of fun. It's hard
to find people to play with who have the same musical taste. The music
scene here on campus is basically a grundge-rock ghetto.
Some questions: Has anyone used a small electret mic, like the
clip-on ones that horn players use? Also, what are people's opinions
on chromatic harps? I've got a (relatively) cheapo Hohner chromatic
and I don't like it.
