Hi All, I’m Dinesh and I live in UK. I grew up listening to my Dad play the harp. It was a small honher puck C that he played. I think he used tongue blocking to play single notes on the small harp. I grew up listening to him play oh my darling Clementine and other melodious songs. It was always my desire to learn to play the harp properly and now at 51 years of age I have started learning in earnest. I have signed up to Beginner to Boss and love practicing the songs. My playing has improved in leaps and bounds thanks to Luke’s encouraging teaching. I play on Honher golden melody and also on the East Top 008k in the key of C.

Sorry toogdog. Haven’t had much chance to use Russian since learning it in high school. Forgot to include the translation.

Welcome. Enjoy learning the harmonica. This is a good community with helpful people.

Kaluga? Famous for caviar, right?

Greetings all,
Getting back into harmonica after too long a lay off while learning guitar/uke (baritone).
Many years ago I inherited my old dad’s mouthies when he passed away. I went straight out & bought a tuition book which was double Dutch to me. A young colleague on the N.Sea platform we were on checked out book & moothies & told me ‘wrong book’ for my moothies. Next trip he brought out a basic one and tuition tape and I was started.
Night shift spent wandering the platform sometimes regaling the troops by playing into my radio mic!
Anyway that was long ago, I’m now in a Uke group and want to do song intros, so here I am for tips :wink:

Hi Alan. If your already so musical this is going to be a great addition to your repertoire. Its truly a great little instrument not to be underestimated if you want to play well.
Welcome and good luck.

Hi,
I’m a senior to use the polite description!
About 40 years I inherited my late father’s harmonicas and made some futile attempts to get started, ie bought a book.
I got nowhere.
Years later I mentioned this to a work colleague and showed him the book & instruments.
It was a blues harp book and none of them were blues harps.
We were working on oil rigs & our next trip he brought me out a simple harp and Don Baker cassette! My journey had begun .

Welcome @Restles. There are a few of us Aussies, but we’re outnumbered. What state do you live in?
I’m sorry I can’t help, most of us are beginners but there are a few who might be able to assist. I don’t think there is any harmonica in the song, is it the instrumental in the middle that you want to copy on harmonica?
Maybe re -post your question in the main forum topics might give you a better chance of a response.

Hi everyone!
I’m Markus from Germany and just purchased the Beginner to Boss course. Got my Special 20 as a gift one year ago and have been playing since… sometimes more, sometimes less but never really structured. I already can do some bends and stuff but still felt I should get all the foundations really fixed so I hope this course will do that and will not be too easy :sunglasses:(I don’t expect that to happen tbh :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:)
Excited to start,
see you
Markus
