Re: Introduce yourself

Welcome here. ... If Brendan does not mind, I'd like to start a new thread on pentatonic tunings here to share ideas about them. ... ... So if Brendan does not object, I will try to start some discussion in a new "Pentatonic tunings" thread. ... Why should he do so? And this is the place: http://www...

Re: New PowerBender and PowerDraw Harps

Not that this tuning were an option to me at the moment, but ... riveted reeds ... http://up.picr.de/17281789wj.png Back to the roots. Is this an exception, or does it mark a new standard in the Easttop production? Will Lucky 13 maybe return to riveted reeds too one day? This would be an advantage f...

Re: The OVERBLOW BOOSTER - Overblows Made Easy, New OB Effects

One more question: When considerering, whether the "booster-bar" would be a useful device for me, I came over this review of the Suzuki Overdrive MR-300 by Pat Missin: http://www.patmissin.com/ffaq/q25.html I presume that the main features of the Suzuki Overdrive and of your overblow booster are abo...

Re: The OVERBLOW BOOSTER - Overblows Made Easy, New OB Effects

I just considered this as well - with the same thoughts in my mind as Edvin. The video with Brendan's succesful and fine overblows - considering him as a rather poor overblower - made a convincing impression on me. Seems as it could help me too. I look forward to your report, to decide whether I sho...

Re: Spanish tuning

Been reading up on the Spanish tuning. It seems it is based on the Spanish Gypsy scale, a.k.a. the Phrygian dominant scale. Other names are the Jewish scale, or Spanish Phrygian scale. That is, the six notes on the harp that form the two chords E - G# - B and F - A - C, respectively, has a missing ...

Re: Is there a public calendar for Brendan Power?

I would think too, that this were nice.

Re: Pentatonic harmonica

Thank you for the answer. It was the same answer that I got in the case of the other tuning. (It was the Spanish tuning.) Seems to be a principle of the construction of a harmonica tuning layout in common, not depending on which type of tuning there is intended. Once a certain tuning works in one ke...

Re: The Dingle Angle Tuning

Just what I wanted to say. There are really good reasons for both of it. Just depending on the tune, the rhythm, the genre, the personal style and whatever else. And every time I have tested and practised a new tuning or a new type of harp excessively, I return to others for those purposes, where th...

Re: The SlipSlider - a Revolutionary Blues Harp.

Dont know if its useful but i did it in small steps. Yes. I think it is useful. I made the same experience with many different things. Some examples: 1. Chromatical harmonica: After having put them aside for decades, I started with my rhythmic polyphonic style on Richter tuned chrom (a special tuni...
