I suppose there are other Irvs but was it you who put the TABs on Harp Tabs ? I could not have played Oklahoma without that help.
Yes Dezzy, I did post those tabs.
I used to have a chart that showed how to convert music notes to tabs. Many libraries have a section with music books
with many popular songs, and that's where I got this one. With the chart it was a slow conversion process, but it worked okay. I can't play from sheet music, but I think I am now going to give it a good effort.
Yes, it is open for all chromatic postings, from anyone, (no diatonic).
(It was suggested to 'sticky' it, & I'm OK with that.)
If the new topic "On The Button" is only for chromatics posting.
Does that mean that the monthly songs and the alphabet tunes will
now have to be posted with a diatonic harmonica only?
You are a very fit looking 85 Irv
I play a lot of tennis, that helps.
But even so, there is still a strange old guy that I don't recognize, who keeps looking back at me in the mirror.
And I still get that run down feeling... when I get hit by a car.
I am, Four Score plus five.
In some sections in your playing of Dream Baby, the notes blend in with one another and flow with continuity. Those parts sound good, and shows that you are improving fluidity. Keep working on that, and soon you will be playing as smooth as velvet.
here is a little German folk song. Du, Du Liegst mir im Herzen. I think it translates as You ,You Weigh on my Heart.
I am familiar with that tune Dezzy, we used to have a music box with that song.
You played it quite well.
It sure sounds like Danny Boy and you have a fine harmonica to play it on. My only suggestion is to post a video of you playing, so that the more experienced players here can visualize your technique, and perhaps offer suggestions on how to improve your fluidity from one note to another.
I very seldom play a song without including rhythm chording along with the melody.
Does that include playing that way on a chromatic too?
Just listened to your rendition of Cheek to Cheek, I thought it was a very good effort, it is a happy tune and I would have liked you to put a little more bounce in it,how about having a go at it.Eric33
I know it's a lively tune Eric, and I did at first try to play it that way with a little bounce. But the harmonica I was using required a lot of breath, and I could not keep up the pace, so I played it a lot slower. That's the only playable diatonic that I have at the present time, however I am in the process of getting a new harmonica that is more responsive. I like to play rhythm and melody at the same time. Next month I will jazz up my playing a bit.
Thanks to all of you who wrote nice comments about my "Carnival Of Venice" tune.
I have been working on another song, playing on a Marine Band low "C" harmonica. I kind of
struggle with some of the very low notes which is noticeable in some places. But I spent enough time on it and will post it soon.
Sarge, that's a very nice lively foot stomping style of playing Cheek To Cheek, I enjoyed that.
That's one of the C songs that I have been practicing, and planned on posting it with more practice. Compared to you my version could cure insomnia.
