>So, don't know what they did with the sound in the movie? as I don't have the movie here to listen to. But that's how it was done. The tune then goes into A minor. It is easy enough to do on a diatonic but you won't get that laconic discord. So a chromatic in C was used.
This is in A minor, like the original. The starting note is an E,
then he releases the slide and you hear the D#. That 's not
possible on a C chromatic. Or am I missing something?
Of course this is not a big deal, but I must say that I'm a bit
surprised that the type of harmonica used in one of the
most famous harmonica tunes is NOT a known fact :)
