Why Am harp?
I think you can use 4th position to play Am on a C harp.
try playing "House of the rising sun" on the C harp. That would be in 4th position.

Post by: 430nmtune on July 22, 2008, 12:34:21 PM
Depende kung ano ang gusto mong i tugtug. Usually kung Jazz at classical ang Chromatic ang mas ayos. Pag rock,blues or country naman .. Diatonic. But you can use both types to some extent.

Gusto kong siprain ang mga adliban ni Stevie Wonder sa harmonica (syempre chromatic yun)...

Pero gusto ko ring pag-experimentuhan sa harmonica ang keyboard adlib ng Domino Line, tsaka iba pang mga awitin...


sir, pwede n'yo po bang i-explain yung tungkol sa "to some extent?" Beginners talaga po ako at gusto ko talagang matutunan ang pagtugtog ng harmonica...
Title: Re: Harmonica Thread
Post by: 430nmtune on July 23, 2008, 05:50:06 PM
Ang TINDI mo naman na beginner. Gusto mong seprahin yung Stevie wonder 'adlib' tsaka keyboard ng Domino Line. hehehe.

"to some extent?"  Since you cannot bend the notes in a Chromatic but can get all the notes...syempre iba ang tunog kahit pareho ang nota. Mas 'bluesy' kasi pakingan ang bent note kontra sa 'Button in' note ng Chrom. Many can play the Chrom in blues context  are very good but usually they prefer jazzy blues or bluesy jazz.

Some people can bend and overbend all the notes from a Diatonic like Howard Levy , Carlos Del Junco and maybe you. hehehe. Kya puede din gamitin ang Diatonic sa Jazz. Depende sa abilidad ng player.  Ako hanggang blues on a diatonic lang talaga. Yung mga simple lang. I have a Chrom(C) but use it only to play Blues in 3rd position. Just like using a Diatonic starting in hole 4 (D) draw (inhale).

Kung Stevie Wonder ang gusto mong i-sepra... Chromatic ka na. OK din for pop at ballads. Para sa akin mas mahirap lang talaga tsaka mas mahal. Kung I-IV-V (Rock , Blues) player ka rin Diatonic ka na.  Mura na ... cool pa. hehehe.

Guys, yung nabili kong diatonic sa raon is a 48-hole harmonica...

... pero yung mga nakikita kong Blues Harmonica mga nasa 10-hole lang.

Anong masasabi n'yo? Advantage ng mas maraming hole? Disadvantage ng maraming hole...
Title: Re: Harmonica Thread
Post by: 430nmtune on August 01, 2008, 09:18:49 AM
Malamang Tremolo Harmonica ang nabili mo. It is good for playing folk and some country and common songs. Upper and lower deck holes are same notes slightly off tuned ang isang deck para mag create ng 'tremolo effect.' Draw(inhale) and blow(exhale) holes are alternate. The diatonic harmonica has two reeds in one hole so meron sya draw and blow note. This arrangement also makes bending possible.
Practice with the tremolo harp will help you when you shift to diatonic after some adjustments.
Maganda din yan. I started on that one too. Good luck.
Title: Re: Harmonica Thread
Post by: hatfield110 on August 01, 2008, 06:08:50 PM
Ah... so ibig sabihin, sa Diatonic harmonica pwede po akong magbend ng nota? (example, and blow ko C, tapos and draw ko B)... tama po ba?
Title: Re: Harmonica Thread
Post by: 430nmtune on August 03, 2008, 11:36:53 AM
Blow C,Draw D, (hole #1)  pero di yan ang bending. Pag nag bend ka sa #1 you get Db.
You can Draw Bend on holes 1,2,3,4 and 6. Tapos Blow bends sa holes 7,8,9,10. Remember in contrast to the guitar where bending the strings will raise the note higher, bending on the harp will lower the note.
Check the internet marami sites na pwedeng pag aralan. O kya bili ka ng libro na meron CD.  Contact Deltaslim he may be able to hook you up with some teachers if you are in M. Manila.
Keep your tremolo harmonica but buy a 10-hole diatonic. Get the best one you can afford.  Good luck.

Pag mabilis na pop o kya rock siguro ok lang yung keys pero sa blues....Di kaya ng keyboard and Tone ng blues harp.   

Usually yung Doobie brothers na 'Long Train Running'  ang naririnig ko na keys instead of harp ang gamit sa mga bars o clubs.

Tagal ko na may harmonica, and still trying to learn, but until now I think I'm still in the early stage of learning.  How did you get pass such stage? I know it requires practice and perseverance.  My question I guess is geared towards your practice habits, song choices to begin with, video lessons you took/plan to take, teacher if you have any, etc.  Please share, appreciate the help.

China made harps are around 70-200 pesos.
Hohner harps may be around 700-1000 pesos.

Kung nahihilo ka baka puro blow(exhale) notes ang gina gamit mo. Usually sa blues playing naman majority draw notes(inhale).

Hi fellow harp players,

I got a problem with my harp: 5th-hole draw reed doesn't work (ie. no sound). Any suggestions on how to make this work before I "operate" my harp?

Cheers!

Title: Re: Harmonica Thread
Post by: 430nmtune on September 25, 2008, 04:16:38 PM
Hehehe. Dapat kasi harp makers send extra 5 hole draw reeds. I have 2 harps with flat 5 hole draws. Sinubukan kong i-tune by filing the tip and checking with a chromatic tuner. One worked but the other one needs a replacement. Yung isa may crack ata sa base.
Gamitin mo pa rin ito para ma hasa ang ang 2 hole draw bend mo.

Hahaha! or atleast may nagbebenta ng reeds dito sa PH!

The plan is to open the harp, look what the reed looks like and try to pretend I know something about fixing the reed.  :-D  Seriously, sana may nastuck lang na dumi. Kasi biglaan yung pagkamatay ng 5th ko eh. One day I was playing it, the next day it was dead!

Hehehe! Yup no plans on throwing this harp away bro! Bad news is, I need this harp on sat.   :cry:

Nope. I was trying to fix that harp - that was the harp i was talking about in my previous posts. I pushed the reed too hard and alas! it broke! How I wish may nagbebenta ng reed ng hohner dito sa PH. Kaso, harp nga wala eh...  :cry:

Sa tingin ko talagang me bali na yun. Madaling mag fatigue ang 5-hole draw. Siguro mas madalas magamit. Tatlo na ang harp ko na patay ang 5 draw.
 
Mag open harp surgery din ako sa weekend. subukan ko ilipat ang  reeds galing sa ibang sira na harp.

Hi, I think merong nagcoconduct ng harp lessons na taga Philmusic din, I suggest you start focusing on playing cross-harp. Anyway, C would be a good harp to start with -  you'd be jamming with a G-rooted song. And if you're getting a suzuki, get a Blues Master, never a Folk Master.

Yey! dumadami na ang harp players sa Pinas!  :-)

ps. bakit nga ba walang pangtest ng harp sa mga music stores dito sa PH?  :?

I have used a couple of Folkmasters. Ok naman sya out of the box, considering the price. Madali nga i-bend. I have a set of five na reserba C,G,D,A,Bb. Suzuki nga ito pero gawa na sa China.

Na subukan kong i test ang harmonica (talagang gamit) isang beses mukha bago yung sales person. Pero binili ko naman.

Kung Ala- Bob Dylan... Kailangan mo ng Harp holder. TOmbo o kya Suzuki brands reasonable. Around 500 pesos. 
Kung nahirapan ka mag bend. straight harp playing na lang muna. Para masanay ka na me guitar at harp sabay kanta. Just play Key A songs muna. Pag Kay mo na mag bend... Saka ka na tumira ng Key E sa cross harp position.

Malamang tremolo harmonica ang nabili mo. Yung taas at baba na hole mag ka parehas halos na note. Medyou off lang ng konti ang isa para mag bigay ng 'tremolo effect'. Ok ang tremolo para sa mga folk o traditional songs(Paru-parung bukid...). Pero kung gusto mo rock, blues o kahit pop, bumili ka na nang 10 hole diatonic harmonica. Tapos balik ka dun sa website na nakita mo. Good luck.

Post by: ilazher on August 07, 2011, 07:36:45 PM
Ok na rin yun para sa beginner. Di mo kailangan muna ng chromatic.tsaka mas mahal yun sa diatonic.

Hello! I just took up the harp, Im no Blues man I listen mostly to punk to but I got a soft spot in my heart when it comes to American roots music and Im really into Th' Legenday Shack Shakers (
) right now which you know has got one of the meanest frontman/harp player that side of the wherever, any how I got my self two diatonics fron evil bay ones a Silverstar and the others a Puck both by Hohner. Got the Puck 1st which is a mini harp tried learning to blow/draw single notes to no avail then got the proper sized Silverstar got some measure of success doin the single note stuff. I got a question though, does the 2nd hole (G draw E blow) really sound that floppy or weak?

bago ang lahat pagpasensyahan niyo na po kung parang ewan lang ang pinagsasabi ko dito kasi limited as in talaga ang knowledge ko dito hehe sa Guitar Central kasi ako madalas. hehe

sirs, gusto ko mag-aral ng "blues harmonica". Yun yung 8-hole lang diba? Medyo marunong na ako magharmonica pero ang gamit ko kasi for couple of years na eh 16-hole dual reed chromatic harmonica, yung karaniwan lang.

Gusto ko makagamit nung 8-hole blues harmonica talaga pero wala kasi akong mahanap sa province namin dati. May nahanap pala ako na 8-hole pero chromatic pa din. Iba po ang "scale" ng blues harmonica di ba? Dito sa stores sa manila anong marerecommend niyo sir na midrange na blues harmonica (diatonic)?

Thanks!
