Re: Some six-hole adaptations of "Wilde Rock" tuning

Three of the four tunings shown above contain an Amin (ii chord) in their blow layers. I will correct those diagrams as soon as I can.

Re: A family of new modded-Richter tunings

The upper half of this tuning is from "Wilde Rock" tuning by Will Wilde (shown here: http://www.brendan-power.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=91&start=10#p1478 ). The lower half adds a V chord with two options for dominant sevenths. http://www.brendan-power.com/forum/download/file.php?mode=view&id=410

Re: A family of new modded-Richter tunings

For this tuning: Step 1: Start with the tuning just above. Step 2: Chop off channel 10. Step 3: Add a new channel preceding the others, with C blow and D draw. An additional dominant seventh note is gained for the V chord in the blow layer. http://www.brendan-power.com/forum/download/file.php?mode=v...

Re: Applications for Alan's "Modular Chord Harmonica"

If one were to add another chordal harp to this lineup, a good candidate would be a Bb/C harp. Then one could play I--IV--V songs as F--Bb--C.

Re: Applications for Alan's "Modular Chord Harmonica"

The table below incorporates the "alternative note pattern" described in the post just above this one. It also specifies the lowest possible tunings for Big Sixes, according to Seydel's Configurator at this time. Of course, if one used these six chambers as merely the beginning of a 10-, 12- or 13-h...

Re: Applications for Alan's "Modular Chord Harmonica"

Here is an alternative note pattern for each layer of the chordal harps above: Hole 1: lower b7th Hole 2: tonic Hole 3: perfect fifth Hole 4: upper b7th Hole 5: octave of tonic Hole 6: octave of perfect fifth This pattern omits the thirds, and is therefore useful in both major and minor contexts. It...

Re: Some six-hole adaptations of "Wilde Rock" tuning

Any of the three Big Six tunings shown above might do well within Alan's "Modular Chord Harmonica".

Applications for Alan's "Modular Chord Harmonica"

I am very excited about this: http://www.brendan-power.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=267 Around the idea of Alan's modular platform , I have devised some chordal Big Sixes which, in combination with some kind of melodic (e.g. blues scale) Big Six, would constitute a highly adaptable system. The diag...

Some six-hole adaptations of "Wilde Rock" tuning

Here are some of my own ideas on how to adapt "Wilde Rock" tuning, by Will Wilde , to a six-hole format. Below I show the original 10-hole version, and also three six-hole versions. All are based on the "song key" of G. http://www.brendan-power.com/forum/download/file.php?mode=view&id=404 http://www...
