: I agree with Bluz but would advise that drinking beer and scotch makes the taste really nice,but d'ont spill any beer on them hot valves!!!!
I never had a problem with the metallic taste of a harmonica. I strongly advise incorporating personal hygiene with playing technique. Keep your harmonica(s) clean and dry. Don't share your harmonica(s) with anyone. To the question of "What about my girlfriend?" my answer is what if she is engaging in a in really decadent sexual activities behind your back? Or on a lesser note, doesn't share your high standards of cleanliness. Seriously, don't eat immediately before playing. And as for the taste of your instrument, if it really bothers you, try wiping it with your favorite mouthwash. DON'T SOAK YOUR HARMONCA(S). Soaking shortens the life of your harmonica.
