Harmonica by ear

Post by RonKiley »

Does anyone else find it easier to play harmonica by ear than other instruments? I played a little random notes and it sounded like down in the valley. So I gave it a try. My wife said that sounds good. So I tried rock of ages. She said that sounds good too. How about yawl.

Ron -

I think I probably play harmonica by ear more often than other instruments. Haven't played a harmonica in a while, though. I mostly play during worship services, and am reluctant to ask our worship leader to tune the piano to my harmonica. :)

Ron, when I tried to play it was all by ear. I just could not seem to get one good note at a time consistently. ](*,) Finally gave up. My mom was could play harmonica very well, but did not pass that gene on to me! :?
