:lol: No excuses necessary, we all have our HAS to deal with at times. One things for sure, Dex, you'll have plenty to do, learning to play them all, when you don't find any more bargains. :D

I know. It's a bit embarrassing!

Furthermore, this is ANOTHER harmonica that will require me to learn a new technique because it's quite unconventional.

My only excuse is the same excuse I always use: A chance to buy an expensive harmonica at a crazy 70% (or more) discount.

Somewhat early for the Xmas songs, but nicely done all the same, Eric. :)
(I prefer the honesty of the single takes in forums like these.)
Everyone slips up now & again, we're all human. ;)

It has been my experience that it is common amongst players with a large repertoire to go into another song during attempts to play certain songs due to
their similarities. Wish I had that problem. I have no library. I suspect bass players may do that with the rhythms that are similar.

Another good one. At times we long to sing who’ll Start the rain.

Drifter created a new topic ' Price of sheet music!' in the forum. 23 hours 5 minutes ago

After listening to Eric's playing of Happy Days and lonely nights I did a search on You tube for examples of the song and came across this version by Ruby Murray.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3ktYQSyb0Y
The video consists of a series of sheet music covers. The second one is Happy Days and I noticed the price of one shilling which I think is worth about 5p in new money. The next cover, "If anyone finds this, I love you" is priced at two shillings but also has a modern price sticker at £4 which is 40 times the original price.
I then had a look on ebay and found the sheet music for The Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel which originally cost 30p now selling for over £10. I am now hunting around the house for old sheet music to make my fortune!

Am pleased that you are on the mend Serge. Thank you for your comment,I deliberately left the slip up to prove that I haven’t tried more than one recording,and that you can forget where the song goes occasionally.I have at times,gone into another song as there are tunes which sound alike.Have you come across this?Eric.

Dex, does your Swan have valves? My 10 hole Swan does not. If it does not have valves there is no need to warm it up.

Yes, the 1248 is a valved harp. In Swan's system, 1248 is 12 holes and 48 "tones" (their word). I think all of their chroms with MORE than 10 holes are valved.

As I recall, it is just the 1040 which is unvalved. 1040 being 10 hole and 40 tones.

I'd like to get a 1040 but I need to find a place to fit it into my orders. As of this writing, I have another "mystery harp" on order which will be revealed when ti arrives :).

Good one Eric. It's easy to slip a little when changing octaves or keys during the song. It was hardly noticeable.

On a cool house, try using a heating pad on low for about 10 minutes to warm up your chromatic. This should help the sticking.
