Re: Lucky 13 - Best harp I've played!

I am still impressed with mine after quite a bit of playing time on my PowerChro G, D and C (retuned). I will be looking to get Gnarly to tune one down to A for me soon. I would get a full set of keys, if they were available. I guess the fact that these are playable chromatically makes most people ...

Re: Regular Scottish Tuning

Aha, looks interesting. And has a little bit from this tuning of one of my Seydel Samplers, at least considering the function: https://up.picr.de/35270179sp.jpg I got the idea from Donald Black, who comes from Scotland indeed. He uses the tuning on a turn around tremolo from Hohner ("Highlander", a ...

Re: Cajun and Quebecois tunes

For Cajun I would consider G as the first choice. G is the key by which the typical cajun accordion is tuned with. If you want to play mainly in second position, you are right with the C harp. But I prefer Brendan's Slide Diatonic by Hering in G. It is perfect to play the voice of the cajun accordio...

Re: Irish Session Harp Hering

They are very rare. In case of you will maybe not find one, there is an alternative, but it is rather expensive: Seydel Sampler, configurated in LD+G.

He tried to damp t...

The Chieftains had released one or more explicite Christmas-CDs too. These must be still available. If you check out the web for them there are shown some more Christmas-CDs by other Irish / Celtic artists as well.
