Re: Fully chromatic tuning for slideless 10-hole “diatonic” harp (or “Black Badge” tuning)

As for my "Disclaimer/Disclosure" (above), my suspicion has been validated. On the Slidemeister forum, Gary Lehmann pointed out that "Black Badge" is identical to, and preceded by, PentaBender tuning by Roger Myerson . I thank Gary for the correction and congratulate Roger for "getting there" first.

Re: "Big Six Blues Solo Buddy" or "Drei Blaue Tonleiteren"

The final four chambers (i.e. 3-6) of the "Solo Buddy" tuning above has become part of larger, more chord-enabled tunings that I call "mullet" tunings. On this Forum, see "Blues Mullet" tuning for 10-hole harp and also "Blues Mullet" tuning for 12-hole harp.

Re: "Blues Mullet" tuning for 10-hole harp

I suggest that you compare this tuning to the newest one in the Topic called "High Octane" blues tuning for 10-hole harp. The two tunings are very similar in their overall goals and capabilities, but they have very different structures. I ask for your thoughts on these two approaches.

Re: "Big Six Blues Solo Buddy" or "Drei Blaue Tonleiteren"

Just a few minutes ago I documented, in a Topic called "Diagrams of well-known tunings", a tuning created years ago by Heiner Krüger. I then noticed that my "Solo Buddy" (diagrammed above) has a lot in common with Krüger's "Optimized Blues Tuning" . The differences are few, but details matter. I wou...
