Thanks for posting details on making a spiral harp from a Lee Oskar richter.
I do pretty much the same thing. That makes at least 3 or us here - me, you
and Crazy Bob. Please send the PDF and blank master you mentioned.
".....my spiral tuning chart.....I list the semitones to change for each
hole. You calculate the notes for each key. (Easier than it sounds)....."
Here is a link for a page called
"Music Theory: Keys, Scales and Triads"
It lists the individual notes for each major diatonic scale and tells how to
get the notes of the relative minor scale from each major scale (which I
find useful when I want to make a spiral minor harp with the root note on 2
draw instead of 1 draw like it is on the major spiral harp). The advantage
of the minor root note on 2 draw is you have the 5th of the scale at 1 blow
and the chords and many of you licks are in the same place as in the major
I find this chart very useful for changing a richter tuned harp to a spiral
tuned harp. It eliminates the need to "calculate the notes for each key".
