Introduction: Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Half-valved Diatonic Harmonica
Hi folks! Here is the promised follow up to my video instructable about making your own harmonica valves! In this instructable, I discuss my approach to playing half-valved diatonic harmonicas. I discuss tips for good tone, getting good valved bends, blow vibrato, and legato playing. At the end I play a little freestyle melody on a half-valved harp, which incorporates all of these techniques! Enjoy!
