As a fiddler, I don't understand what you did technically, but I understand what you accomplished and say, "Good on You!"

Tonight I used a "Powerdraw" diatonic in front of a paying audience for the
first time.Â The band I was with called Taj Mahal's "Fishing Blues" in D.
Â I wasn't thrilled about playing it on an ordinary diatonic in 2nd
position for a few reasons,Â one of which was simply that a regular G harp
is kind of low and easy to get lost in the mix.Â I didn't have a High G
available,Â but I did have a G Powerdraw which is kind of like having a
High G because the upper register mimics the lower register and lets you
have the same draw bends up there.Â Â It worked out quite well and the
audience was appreciative of my solo!
