Re: [Harp-L] optimized blues tuning

Hi Gary,

"Jazmaan's Temptation tuning"? - interesting! Would you mind sending me the chart or further links?

You immediatly realized why I chose the "odd note" in 4 draw. On I tried to explain why I chose the note in 4 draw (and the rest) - and also tried to make clear that depending on HOW you intend to play it might be better to chose different notes.

I took a look at the chart I made of this tuning--
It looks a lot like Jazmaan's Temptation tuning that got some attention here
a couple of years ago--see attached chart.
Only one reed is different--and it's 4 draw, the one note that's somewhat
odd, in that it breaks the lowest to highest pattern--the draw note is
higher than the next hole blow note.
I have to think it makes it harder to play the bent notes for fully
chromatic play, but because the hole has an interval of a minor third, it
should be good for big bluesy bends . . .
