Hello to you all.
About 8-10 days old as the proud new owner of a Harmonica in C , as I keep hearing. 🙂
Other week I was walking through an ALDIS store and 2 items on sale caught my eye. 1 being the Harmonica with instructions and the other a set of juggling balls which also came with instructions.
I tell ya, I haven’t been between a rock and a hard place for a long time. 2 seconds later and I was on my way.
I’m still teaching my mouth to make room for our new friend and the pucker the lips thing… just keep telling myself to relax and it will come.
I can say with hand on my heart tho that they do go through the wash, I found mine in my pants pocket hanging on the line this morning.
Hadn’t actually told my wife that I had one ya see, I work away from home and wanted a place to practice . So this morning when I found it in my pocket I walked out into the kitchen and let go a real rough 1 – 10 hole blow, wife turns round and says ” I never knew you could play that. ” ” Me either, how cool is that. ” I said, turned and walked away … it was a fun moment thats for sure.
As for a bit of history, well my dad played the Ukulele, like i mean he could really make it sing and although I picked up his Uke as a kid I never got the hang of it so wrote myself off as not the musical type.
The odd thing is, I’ve always had a fascination with the Harmonica but its taken all these yrs, 50 of them to finally make a connection and I’m loving it.
Anyhow nice to put myself out here and say hi to you all and look forward to finding my way around.
Its always nice to see who ya talking to so once I find something suitable I’ll put a pic up.
BTW: I see Mitch is running a survey , although I’m new I think these things are critical for the person running the site to receive as much info from US ( the members) as possible, so if you haven’t already done so show him your support and get behind his dream of sharing the dream. Isn’t that why we’re here, to learn .May 31, 2019 at 2:21 am #12699TwigsletParticipant
Hi Patrick, good to meet you, mate
What a great post. I’m still trying to find my way around the website. I’m not very good on all of this tech stuff. Reading your post made me grin from ere to ere!
I have been practicing sometimes three times a day and can do the train for a minute. lol!! Not bad I guess for two days on here.Nowhere near as fast as our teacher Mitch Grainger, though I guess I need to keep at it!!
