I just play a plain ole out of the box honer, like the crossover bamboo,,,,

blew it out...
play some fast bluegrass style,,,but cant' really say I get all the notes
kid told me it was BluesGrass so there ya go.
love playing and getting kicked out of some of the jams where harp is just
not wanted in bluegrass...so
might learn to play some of the tunings one of these days wont be long...oh

Down in Dixie
