[Harp-L] lips

Do any of you apply lip balm such as chap stick prior to playing.   Maybe a 
cleaning of my harps once or twice a year may help. LOL.  Trying  that new 
stuff Abreva will update as I am sure you all are curious about my lip

Here's the harp you want. I came up with it in  1959. Took it to  
Nashville in 75. From there it went international.  BUT it took  
several years. Smokey Joe tuning. The 5th AND 9th draw  reeds are up  
one semi tone and there's a wind saver on the 5 draw.  You can do a  
whole lot with this tuning. I play jazz with  it.
