Hello and welcome to this week’s harmonica lesson where I will be answering some questions that I have received in the YouTube comments.
Here are the questions
Tomlin, I just started playing not long ago and my problem is that my mouth hurts. I have problems keeping the strength up in my lips, it feels like my lip muscles are getting cramps! Is that normal?
I want to ask which harmonica is good for beginners – Special 20 standard tuning or Special 20 country tuning?
If playing the riff in 2nd position ‘E’ on an ‘A’ harp, why not play straight from first position on an ‘E’ harp? Am I missing something? I ask this because my main harmonicas are chromatic, I tend to primarily play straight harp.
How many and in which key harmonicas should I have?
I’m a pianist and when I play ‘Piano Man’ with a harmonica stand am I playing it wrong if I’m using that?
Thank you so much for taking part in this lesson. I hope you found it useful. If you did, I would really appreciate you sharing it on Facebook and/or Twitter.
See you next Wednesday for the next harmonica lesson!
