Just wanted to drop in and say “Howdy”. I’m a long time guitar/bass player who had to sell his instruments then found a Hohner Golden Melody that I’d have for years stuck back in a drawer. In a moment of musical desperation I got it out and started to play it and low and behold I all of a sudden could blow single notes. Something that I never could do in the years that I’ve owned it.
That put me on a buying and selling frenzy to get the “right” harmonica, went thru quite a few ended up with a couple that I liked and played a lot for about 3 months. Then, long story short, I had to have one of my cats put down because of feline leukemia and had a scare that the other two might have it, thank God they didn’t but losing that cat just kind of took all the joy out of my life and the wind out of my sails for playing harp.
Not played in about 10 months but I’d like to try and get motivated back into playing. I’m selling off most of my harps(at least the ones that are good enough to sell) and I’d like to pick up either a Lee Oskar Am Harmonic Minor harp or maybe a Hohner Educator 10 Chromatic. Just figure that something different from a standard Diatonic might motivate me back into playing.
I’ve always loved European/Yiddish/Gypsy/Greek style music so I think the Am L.O. would be a cool way to get back into playing but the Chromatic has always been enough of a mystery to me to make me want to try one and at $36 bucks and with good YouTube reviews the Hohner Educator 10 might be a pretty cool way to get into one for a very small investment.
Anyway, don’t mean to be so long winded,LOL, but just wanted to introduce myself to ya’ll.
