I take the plates off and use a section cut from an old comb to test the tuning as I go. Once close I put them back on the real comb and fine tune them there.

Nice
Thanks for posting it.
I’ve tried a few tunings, all have been my favorite at one time or another but I keep going back to Paddy Richter, for all kinds of music. It just feels natural somehow, even with the silly upper octave.

Re: THE ENTERTAINER - Played on Lucky 13 in PowerChromatic Tuning

More lessons in general would be great.
Maybe done in blocks?
Chinese music for the slide diatonic ?
Irish music for the slide diatonic ?
Both for the PC?
Or pull a few tunes from Unadorned with lessons....
Great stuff so far, keep it coming.

Re: Harmonicas with Modular Reedplates

Re: THE ENTERTAINER - Played on Lucky 13 in PowerChromatic Tuning

If there is a way you can show the jianpu on the loopable midi files that would be something!
I’m tempted to purchase the lesson even though I don’t play PC.
Maybe I’ll make one.

Nice!
Great playing.
Thanks
I like the idea of your instruction pack including jianpu notation. That makes it useful for transferring the lesson to any tuning or instrument. And jianpu is so logical it’s easier to learn than tab or standard notation.
