  • 08:13 UTC Link: Love Of Chromatic Harmonica Book by David Kettlewell FREE USA SHIPPING!! - RockinRonsMusic
    WHETHER the player of chromatic harmonica is a beginner or seasoned professional with years of on stage experience....there is room for improvement of breath control. BREATH CONTROL, BREATH CONTROL.
    From the book....LOVE OF CHROMATIC HARMONICA...TECHNIQUES AND ADVICE FROM THE WORLD'S BEST! 678 pages.

    The chromatic harmonica is a BREATH or a WIND instrument…and within this fact lay many of the secrets to great playing of the chromatic harmonica.

    Every note that you ever play on harmonica will be supported by the BREATH…and the harmonica is very unique among instruments because you create notes both BLOWING air out... and DRAWING air in.
    Again, you create notes both by blowing air out, and drawing air in on harmonica.

    So, how do you take that fact and turn it into superb control of the instrument?

    The first step is to realize that you will need to develop equal control of breathing in with the harmonica, and blowing out on the harmonica…from very soft, quiet notes to ones with strong volume.
    Controlling breath is the MOST IMPORTANT KEY CORE SKILL on harmonica, and in PYRAMID-speak, it is the # 1 foundation stone of THE PYRAMID which represents your training and skill development on the instrument.

    HOW BREATH IS CONTROLLED

    Many players think that BREATH starts in the chest…it does not.
    The BREATH starts in the diaphragm area of the body, which is about where the belly button is.

    If you place your hands on that part of your body (the diaphragm) and breathe in and out, you will feel it go in and out as you inhale and exhale.
    NOTE: THAT WHEN YOU ARE “BREATHING IN” YOUR TUMMY AREA EXPANDS OUT AWAY FROM YOUR BODY….WHEN YOU “BREATHE OUT” YOUR TUMMY COMES IN. (THE AIR GOES IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION OF YOUR TUMMY.)

    MANY STUDENTS GET THIS A BIT CONFUSED…SO PLEASE REMEMBER…WHEN YOU ARE BREATHING “IN” (TAKING IN AIR) YOUR TUMMY IS GOING OUT—MOVING AWAY FROM YOUR BODY, AND WHEN YOU BREATH “OUT” (BLOWING OUT)YOUR TUMMY IS MOVING IN.

    Now an interesting factoid is that for just about everyone, breathing OUT under control with a harmonica is much easier than breathing IN.
    And this seems to carry over into playing of the chromatic harmonica: for most beginners and even intermediate players, the notes they create when blowing out are stronger and clearer than those created when breathing in.

    If you think about it, that makes sense.

    All the wind instruments involve blowing out, and you blow up balloons by blowing out, and when you speak, talking softly or yelling, or calling someone’s name, you are breathing out.

    So your skills at breathing out are better-developed because we all talk a lot, or sing!

    Breathing out with control thus comes “naturally”…breathing “in” under control less so.

    One of my customers asked me to install some combs on four brand new Golden Melody’s. As I was working on one of them I noticed that something was a little different. The harp looked fatter – like a balloon that was slightly over-inflated – at least a little bit fatter than I was accustomed to seeing. I then realized of the four harps he sent, three of them were the new Progressive Series Golden Melody. From the front and the back, the old GM’s and the new GM’s look the same but around the belly of the harp it seems to be a little rounder and fatter. I think it is because the stamping on the new GM covers are not nearly as pronounced. In fact, it looks more like laser etching that stamping. Here are some pictures.
    Stamping is more aesthetically pleasing but I expect the laser etching is cheaper!!
    I never had much luck w/ GMs.
