Around 20 years ago I devised a harmonica tuning for fast bluegrass and 
Irish tunes, and called it Major Cross. It has Major Scale notes in the 
second or "cross" position used by most players. Major Cross requires no 
bending, so fast tunes are much easier to play.

While some players have adopted Major Cross, the instruments have been 
hard to find.

Not anymore. Seydel have released a Major Cross model, which is now 
available "off the shelf".

The instrument has a distinctive blue comb. Needless to say, I'm proud 
to announce my own harmonica model. Check it out at the Seydel Major 
Cross page below, which has video explanations etc. If the page comes up 
in German, just hit the red "Switch to English" button.

I'm (almost) always the only harmonica player at fast bluegrass and 
Irish sessions, the Major Cross harmonicas allow me to keep up. Some of 
you may be joining me soon, now that Major Cross instruments are easily had.
