Buying Advice

Choosing a Harmonica: If you are learning to play the harmonica we recommend that you start with a 10 hole diatonic harmonica in the key of C.  The key of C is easy to understand as it doesn’t have sharp (#) or flat (b) notes, and most harmonica tutor books are written for key of C. The starter packs offer good value for money and contain all you need to learn harmonica playing. Once you have mastered the basics you can move on to more advanced techniques like bending the notes and tongue blocking.  As you progress you may wish to play or gig along with guitar players, then you will need harmonicas in other keys, and A, D & G are the most popular, and the beauty of the diatonic is, that when when you learn to play in one key, you can play all the harmonicas in the other keys.
