Hi everyone! :)

Scales are great to know if you want to improvise and make your own melodies, many might disagree with me on this, but I’m a scale-fanatic ;D

What kind of music are you into?

Edit: if you play the guitar you should go with a diatonic and a rack, so you can play both at once!

Double edit: SP20 is probably a great harp to get! Other good choices to fair prices would be Suzukis Pro-Masters, Hohners Blues Harps or a Lee Oskar harmonica. Anything that costs more than 20 bucks and less than 60 is good for starters.

Is that what you would recommend? lol

Well if you were here now, I’d give you one of my spare still in-the-box Spec 20 Cs. {Untouched by any human hands and oh lips of course!} :o

And here’s what JP recommends:

And so I guess in the final analysis, yes, the Hohner Special 20 in C is what I’d recommend! :wink:

Smiles, Yo! :slight_smile:

Ok thanks lol, I’ll keep that in mind and hopefully I’ll go soon. I’ll keep you posted.

If you haven’t already seen this check out this thread about online harmonica dealers.

I have tried musician’s friend and amazon and had good luck with both.

Canada Eh, what’s that like.

I hope to learn guitar one day, I’m guessing knowing that already will help you out. After seeing how hard it was to find anyone that played the harmonica near me I felt I had to stick with it. I can’t even find a teacher. You can’t swing a cat in this town without hitting a guitar teacher. I feel like I have a duty to keep the harmonica alive in Missouri.

Edit: if you play the guitar you should go with a diatonic and a rack, so you can play both at once!

Rogue leader is this you ;D
