Will Fly Harmonica keys available in early days (20) RE: Harmonica keys available in early days 08 Oct 18


"We all had harnesses made of old wire coat hangers!"

We did indeed! My harmonica heroes were Sonny Terry, Little Walter and the original Sonny Boy Williamson. I also liked Mox Gowan when I first saw him at the Cousins (Mox is alive and well and living in France). Mox was the first player I saw to have a bandolier with harps in all keys, and I soon acquired my own set.

When I played harp with a mainstream jazz band, the most used keys were Ab and Eb - crossed, of course, to fit in with the brass and reeds.
