Watch more How to Play the Harmonica videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/457278-Different-Types-of-Harmonicas-Harmonica-101 The harmonica is used in nearly every type of music, from blues and jazz to country and rock. In this video, music teacher Marcus Milius teaches you about the different types of harmonicas. "Hi, my name is Marcus Milius. I play harmonica. I got a degree at the University of Southern California, a Bachelor's of Music, in Jazz Studies - Chromatic Harmonica. I play and teach harmonica here in New York City, and I'm happy to show you what I do. One thing that is very confusing about harmonica is that there are so many different kinds. Often times this is just the difference in names, in models, or brands. For instance, the blues harp the marine pan, the special twenty, the golden melody which are all diatonic harmonicas by the Horner company and they are really all very similar. But the main differences in harmonica will be primarily the diatonic and chromatic harmonica. There are many others as well as base harmonica, chord harmonica, echo harmonica, or tremolo harmonica. And they all have different sounds, but primarily it divides into diatonic and chromatic harmonica. Chromatic harmonica looks like this. It plays in all keys, and sounds a bit like the artists Stevie Wonder or twist talemen. Diatonic harmonicas will be set up in one key and you'll need twelve of them to play in every key and they tend to have a bluesier folkier sound, or a bluesy sound. And you'll notice that they bend very nicely, and they have really nice double stops or chords. The other harmonicas that are out there would be the base harmonica, chord harmonicas which are really big, there are also diatonic harmonicas that are tuned to minor, or other scales. There are diatonic harmonicas that have a very organ like sound and they're called echo harps or tremolo harps. So, that takes a lot of investigating to know the difference. But usually most people are going to be playing the majority of recordings that you hear will be chromatic harmonica and diatonic harmonica and they're pretty easy to hear the difference between. "

My harmonica says hohner contessa on it. It looks like hohners golden melody but it has 2 rows with 16 holes each. Does anybody know what kind of harmonica it is? And why there arent any tutorials explaining or teaching how to play with 2 rows

what is the difference of boat shaped and straight diatonic harmonica? and which is better?
Tai Xiang Qi (2 месяца назад)
Vince Magada I think you are comparing hohner golden melody with others harmonica. The different between golden melody and others is the tuning, golden melody has equal temperament tuning that more suitable for playing melody and single notes. Many jazz player prefers this tuning. Meanwhile for other harmonica, they all have richter tuning. In richter tuning, they are not tuned to the perfect pitch but is really smooth and nice for chord playing and bluesy sound.

For a friend get a diatonic 10 hole harmonica. Probably the best most versatile harmonica to start with. I would suggest a suzuki bluesmaster in the keys of c, or a.

thanks "you learn something every day. I'n fact, why do we send our kids to school when you have youtube and so much info it seem to me that ,i personally would have been better off with a computer than a school that wasn't worth the brick work. Gettiung back to the (brand new harp i just bought ) i can not get that bluesy sound what's the secret I can play soundtracks by ear e.g marcia without hope , wandering star etc BUT i cannot get that sound GGGGrrrrr!! lol

athenasword1 you don't have to go to school for one day of your life. You can register with the state that you are schooling your child(ren) at home and can use whatever education system you want.
Rainbow (2 года назад)
Learning to bend is not very hard. To start bending is much easier on draws but can be done on blows. And the basics are te you need to tighten your embouchure and draw more air faster. The correct ammount of both of those things your gonna have to find by yourself. Because depending on the harp Nd other thing it can change.
athenasword1 (3 года назад)
how did you learn to bend?
athenasword1 (3 года назад)
how on earth did your average cowboy learn to bend? (gunsmoke,Rawhide, to name only a few. Those programs gave me the insperation to learn in the first place And people tell me "you can play that good ,how do i know if i can already do it? but i do seem to sound like C/western in bits and pieces but you can't tell what you actually sound like unless you can stand on the other side..of yourself?

I learned how to play the harmonica and sound good in less than 3 months with no hard sweat or tears. I was always fascinated by those that played the Harmonica... Check out LENITO.COM it has really good lessons. I learned so quick with their lessons. I heard about LENITO.COM on CNN and at my University in texas it's great! Visit Lenito.com The daughter masters the macho breath. How does the road govern the serious play? The top presents the page.
