    "whaling" I just... cannot. My Harmonica-ing is terrible.

    Haha! My harmonica-ing is terrible too. I try playing my harmonica with my guitar/ukulele and sometimes it sounds right - most of the time it sounds horrible.

    I have been playing since going to Winfield back in the early 70's.

    It is my main instrument. For about 4 years, I brought my uke to jams, but fell back to my more comfortable feeling with my harps. (I bring 17 to a gig or jam)

    Last week, even got to use my C minor. I got it to play tunes in the musical Godspell about 10 years ago. Haven't used it much lately, so it was good to hear it blending in. I think the song was Jolene.

    My harp playing ranges from the Jeopardy theme to Going to Kansas City.
    I used to just like wailing fast songs, these days I appreciate slowing things down on songs like Shenandoah or O Holy Night.

    be safe, well and well tuned.

    I haven't played the harmonica in a few years, but I used to play it a bit. I was given a collection of old harmonicas, so I thought I would learn.

    The ones that I was given were:

    Marine Band
    Blues Harp
    Echo Elite
    Chromatic
    Melodica (harmonica with a keyboard)
