Duhoooo. I read your earlier email. I will pay more attention in the future but might have to take out a loan to afford to do so.

I’d be interested! Boy, what a cacophony if we’re all in one room…playing at the same time… I’ll risk it!

I had a question today about which harmonicas I’m recommending for the class and I thought I could do a better job of identifying them. Here is a list and links to the websites of the manufacturers. Understand that I am not requiring that you buy one of these harmonicas to take the class, but these are the ones that I’m confident that a beginner will be able to play without them having to be tuned or otherwise repaired and that I feel are likely to be well made enough that I can teach someone to bend notes on these models. If you have a different harmonica feel free to bring it and I will teach you what I can.
These are all 10 hole, diatonic, Richter tuned harmonicas in the $35 to $50 price range. Most of these should sell online someplace in the $40-something range.

Glad you enjoyed it! Was hoping it would be fun. I’ll try another in a couple of months when everyone has had a chance to practice.

It’s been a year and a half since that class! I’ll be around jewelry and automotive today (Friday, Feb. 15) so you can find me and I’ll see if I can help you. Jewelry is having a “train the trainer” class on one of the tools, so I’ll be here past 10 PM.
