[Harp-L] Seydel releases Tony Eyers Major Cross harmonica
Sat Feb 4 17:26:21 EST 2017
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.
