m an old guy from Massachusetts and arthritic all over especially in my hands and fingers. Playing the accordion became painful for me so I turned to the harmonica , another free reed instrument. I been at it 2 weeks now and can play single notes and bend notes , and do basic chugging and train whistle. I learned quite a bit of the basics , free from the pros on Utube. Obviously Ive got much more to learn and not much of a future to look forward to but you never know. Regardless, I
m gonna give it a go . Its fun entertaining myself if nothing else. Hoping to learn more here and maybe contribute to the interest here at some point.
