Thanks so much for posting these - they sound great! I've been wanting to work on more of the tunes from this book and I've now got a bunch of examples on my iPhone to help me out Smiley

Keep up the good work and have fun!

Ugh make that 5 away!  Some record keeping, aaargh.

Some folks have asked if I have a favorite, I'm not a good one for picking favorites of anything but here is a list of the ones I put smiley faces by when I was learning the songs.
10    15   20b   31   39    42   53   56    61    63    72 1&2   73    74    79   88    96    97    99   119   122    142    149    168    172    181    183    190    193    196    215    216    218    222   225   227    233    239    241    248    261    265    272    281    283    288    293    301

Okay so that's about 50... and seriously I enjoy almost all of the songs in this book.
 Then add the 40 or 50 that Karl gives away regularly and those are possibly my favorite 100, LOL!

Anyway FWIW,
Cheers!

....5 to go....

It's been a little quiet around here of late, maybe things will liven up with the longer evenings  Huh

Absolutely superb. I've copied all these onto a minidisc and been listening to them in the van for the last couple of days ... a real inspiration  Cool

Oh yes, that's what I thought, I'm just not so good at putting inflection in my writing!

Hopefully it'll pick up soon around here, now that lots of us in the Northern hemisphere are getting back to fall/winter schedules.

I have started picking my MO up again the past few days.   I have mostly been getting the feel of it again on some of my old favorites.   I have been unemployed for a couple of months now and I just haven't been in the right frame of mind to play because of it till the last few days.  I still love the sound of the MO  I just it had more of a note range.  That is the only thing that is holding them back from pushing my beloved harmonicas to the side.  Anyway it is good to see things picking back up on here again.

Thanks Ryan!

Nice to hear from you Harp Player. I think it's a great use of time to hone your musical edge when other things aren't pushing so much, good for the heart too. Hope all is quickly going well for you.  I have chosen to embrace the MO range, I have found I am physically incapable of playing my triple, and am frequently dissatisfied with the range of my Hinds, and unwilling to gamble on a twelve hole because I'm afraid I'll have the same issues with that as with the triple!  So, well.... that all just makes me even more happy with my MO's. ( Yeah, you can call me Pollyanna! Roll Eyes )

I love the sound quality of the MO.  The recordings I heard of others just didn't have the tonal quality that I love about them. I have looked at and listened to the purple clay triples. They are as close to the MO as I have found as far as tone goes, but the $500 price tag, and the fact that it is fragile clay is a big turn off for me.  Their is also the fact that they look way to complicated for a country boy like me. Embarrassed  Anyway I am in hopes that by the time the pro range MO comes out I will be able to swing one of them.  I guess the 3 octave range of the harmonicas just has me spoiled. 


Update:

I did a little checking and the purple clay triple is on sale for $400 now, but it is still clay (fragile) and looks way to complicated for me.

Harp Player,

The twelve holes and the doubles and triples are really not that difficult, I can't play mine because I have issues with my right arm and hand. And the weight and the angle aggravate it.  But the fingering really isn't all that hard, switching chambers a bit trickier but certainly doable and you'd have a leg up on that since your used to sliding back and forth on your harmonicas. Anyway, if you want to play one and work at it, I'd figure you can.
