I’ve been playing for a few months now, and would like to add another harp. I have a C special 20 now and was thinking of getting an A or G. I enjoy trying to play the blues, any suggestions on which one would be better for a beginner?
It all depends on the music you are interested in learning Irish fiddle tunes lean towards the high side and Blues toward the low side. In my learning experience I started with a C, then G, then an A. After that I bought a set of 7 Special 20’s.
If you are wanting to play along with blues tunes, I find more opportunities to play my Bb or A. This is just my findings so far, I am sure there will be differant opinions.
Don’t let the label fool you, One Harpin Extrodinare just means I talk alot here! It has nothing to do with how good you are!
When I first got here I was confused about that too! lol
Thanks for the input. I think I will go with the A, that’s the way I was leaning just thought I’d get a little input before I decided.
