RE: [Harp-L] Keys for "Celtic" Music.

Hi Ross,
The Sampler is available in G/D alright. I have one. In fact I think that
Bertram Becher of Seydel demonstrated the G/D at the British Harmonica Fest
in Bristol this year.
If you want to learn Irish Tunes, the CD I would recommend is "Dusty Banjos"
they have a book to go with it which has the music as well as banjo and ABC
tab. The CD plays the tunes at a very slow speed and then at a more normal
speed. I am a more or less 100% ear player and found this CD and book to be
the best available learning aid as far as I was concerned. I don't have the
website address off the top of my head, but if you Google Dusty Banjos you
should find it. If you fail let me know and I will let you know the address.

Aongus, I am interested in the Seydel sampler harp, but according to
Rockinronsmusicforless where I go for my harmonicas, this harp is available
in C/G or D/A, not G/D. Can you verify that you use one in G/D? 

I am veey interested in learning to play this type of music. Any suggestions
on an intro CD to learn from?
