Re: Modal mixture slide harp (edit: now with demo video)

Very interesting. Congratulations.

In your first video demonstration, I thought I was starting to hear Del Shannon's "Runaway".

Re: Shifted/Inverted Bebop tuning for non-slide AND SLIDE harps

The tuning just above here was designed with diatonic scales in mind. However, with the I (Cmaj) and IV (Fmaj) chords, a first position minor hexatonic blues scale of C - Eb - F - Gb - G - Bb - C looks quite feasible.

Re: Shifted/Inverted Bebop tuning for non-slide AND SLIDE harps

This one is my personal favorite, so far. Note: On a 12-hole slide chromatic harp, the final tonic C is there with the push of a button. Also, the 2 blow slide-in could raise the C to a D in order to complete the lowest Cmaj octave. Really, this would be a fun little 10-hole non-slide harp. CORRECTI...

Compare the tuning at the beginning of this Topic with this one: https://www.brendan-power.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=616&p=2642#p2642 Note that the only difference is in the blow note that shares a hole with the draw note tonic . One solution gives more scales, while the other gives more useful ...

Re: I / IV Melody Mix

For the Kongsheng Baby Fat , I like this one even more. Notice that after the first five notes it is essentially Circular/Spiral/Helical Tuning . Also, from 1 draw to 6 blow this is equal to EDHarmonica (ie. Extended Paddy Richter ). https://www.brendan-power.com/forum/download/file.php?mode=view&id...

Re: I / IV Melody Mix

Truncated to just seven holes, this tuning would be lovely in a Kongsheng Baby Fat.

I / IV Melody Mix

"I / IV Melody Mix" is a crude working title. I'm trying to blend strong I and IV chords with an easy-playing and expressive (with draw-bends on every tonic, 3rd, 5th and 7th) major diatonic scale . It has some of elements of MelodyMaker and Will Wilde Tuning in there. A minimum of 11 holes are nee...
