When you upload a tune to soundcloud, there's a blank space labelled "upload new image". I just select one from my photos on my computer. You may have to edit them to reduce the size, I don't know what limit on file size Soundcloud impose.


Well! I never knew that. Thanks Tootler.

I agree with you, Irv, the song slow style suits the lyrics. I didn't quite get as slow as you, but well played made it. Again you showed some good camera work I've not seen .

Old Folks At Home, is a song about a wandering man who laments about how dreary his life is
no matter where he goes. He is homesick for his family, and longs to be back with them.
It really is a sad song , but it's played in many different styles.
Here is my version.

What's a Bob????


In our currency of dollars. When we used a “bob” it is now 10 cents. Regardless of what it’s called, I still like to spend it.

Welcome, Doug. Don’t hold back from posting your playing regardless of your standing. Participating is the way to keep at it.

Chromatic harmonica over a Diatonic harmonica. I will always play Diatonic sounds better. Blues really sound good on diatonic. And it's a lot cheaper

Welcome to the HC Doug. My experience with harmonica is maybe 180 degrees from yours, I started playing them at 18 so's I could get free beer. I never stopped, at it is yet to fail me, fact, I refer to beer as a performance enhancing drug. I would never be the guy to recommend this avenue of pursuit to everyone, but it works for me.
Regards, Reed

I didn't experience much of anything unusual with them Pete. I tried some blow bending on the lower notes and that was it. Like I said, I just don't have the skills to really play those.

Welcome Doug. Yeah, that German beer is some good stuff and your forgetting about playing the harmonica at the time is something that I can understand.
Anyway, there's lots of knowledgeable and helpful folks here, so you can ask any questions you may have.
What type of music are you mostly wanting to play?

Talked to Danny G this afternoon, he's on his way to the NAAM show in Cali. Wally isn't feeling well, and not taking on any work at this time. I have other resources, thanks guys.


@Sarge, Man I am having fun with the PT Gazell system harmonicas you sent me. My only beef with half-valved diatonics is that the note when bent is a solitary bend, meaning it is bending without sounding the opposing reed, like a normal diatonic bend. To my ears the draw bends that are now available, 7-10, sound squeaky. Did you experience this?
Regards, Pete

My name is Doug. I bought my first harmonica in 1987 while stationed in Germany, in the Army. I learned "When the saints come marching in" and then put my harp down and forgot about it due to the fact that I was 18 and there was no drinking age in Germany. So here I am at 49 years old and wanting to pick it up again.
