Re: England meets Sweden

He's a powerful player and nice guy. Yes, that is true. I happened to meet him at a concert not very long ago. (It was the year when his sister got her baby.) We did not talk about his tuning of which I did not not have heared of yet by that time. We talked about the upcoming baby :lol: and about t...

Re: PowerBender key choice

I would choose an Eb PowerBender for Gm/Bb . 5th Position is really nice on the PowerBender. That's what I'm using on the Will Wilde video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5V0mPDpxYk (below the video) the track is in Em ; Will is playing an A harp in 2nd Position, I'm playing a C harp in 5th Posit...

Re: Hohner Penta from 1955

Maybe it's a single harmonica, as described here: https://www.patmissin.com/ffaq/q36.html ? An instrument seems to be intended for early music education without bottom reeds.

... Brendan also has a really good track on his PowerBender CD that does this in the key of A.
