I have been getting it right.
I guess this is actually a fact - both, that this is a strength and difficulty. (I just argue from my experience with any other harmocas.) We must consider, that this is intended as a tuning for melody orientated playing. Larger passages of consecutive blow or draw notes are good, if they should sound as a glissando. If a more rhythmic phrasing is intended, rhythmical or at least "regular" changes from blow to draw are better - what you described as "keeping the groove".Brendan wrote: ↑Tue Jun 15, 2021 1:10 pmHowever, in my experience, it's harder to maintain good rhythm when you have a sequence of blow or draw notes all together. When it happens in an Irish tune for example, I have to concentrate much harder to maintain the groove than if the notes are in a blow/draw alternating sequence. I often need to use tonguening articulation to separate out the notes and emphasize the ones I want - otherwise it can sound like a rather bland glissando which doesn't sit well in the groove.
If you would build one and play, certainly would give a nice experience worthwhile to hear and read about - acoustically and in literal words.
Good to know! I made some more These are blow-on-top charts, but swapping them is easy if you would like them reversed.
Thanks for the advice! I've not been a member of either SlideMeister or Facebook.I suggest you should post your new info and diagrams to chromatic harmonica forums like Slidemeister and the various ones on Facebook. It will expose the Wedin Chromatic news to a wider range of people interested in this stuff
It would be very interesting to hear what you think if you do that!
