Re: [Harp-L] Mouth accordion.

Very interesting. However:

1) This is not a mouth accordion. Mouth accordions (or as they're more commonly known, "blow accordions") use keys or buttons to select the notes and use the breath simply to suppy air. 

2) What you'e come up with appears at first to be a chord harmonica. Chord harmonicas have been around since perhaps the 1920s and continue to be produced in many forms.

Where you get my attention is when you then go on to play melodies with it in addition to chords. True, the Chordomonica and the Harmonetta also had that capability in the past, while in the present both the Pulmonica and the Medical chord harmonica have such capabilities. However, your version may be more flexible than the Chordomonica, Pulmonica and Schaman Medical Chord harmonica, and easier to learn than the Harmonetta.

May I suggest that you give more detail on how your invention improves on existing ideas?

Hi all. 
Let me introduce you  mouth accordion  - a musical instrument that looks like, is constructed and has playing technique similar to conventional harmonica, but it allows to play not only solo but also accompaniment in any  key .  Please, see detailed demonstration on the video.
