I'm learning to play harmonica (literally starting today) and it's been very nice to find this website and the forum with so many friendly people willing to help each other. Thanks in advance for the tips I've already seen. You'll probably get some questions from me soon.
Welcome from Long Beach,CA. I see you are from the country, that my first crush was from... Audrey Hepburn, from Ixelles, Belgium.
I'm new at this as well. I had always wanted to learn harmonica, from hearing George Fields, play Moon River, in the opening scene from Breakfast At Tiffany's.
To start with, I will be practicing how to get clear single notes ... for as long as it takes me to be fluent at it (my cheeks and throat are already hurting a bit and I'm still far from completing a series of flawless scales back and forth, you can see there how much of a beginner I am haha ) . So, not many questions at the moment but, any tips you'd like to share are very welcome.
I am actually from the wonderful Colombia but live in Belgium since several year ago. I understand Audrey being your first crush Gary, you were certainly not alone on that, she was a remarkable woman .
Talking about Belgians, I leave you with this Belgian pride that I'm pretty sure you know well. Toots Thielemans, Bye bye Blackbird:
Good luck Keith with your practice, and happy playing for the four of you!!
