: First off heres some very good advice, unless you and your friend have a special relationship, its not to cool to play someones harp. Its like sharing a toothbrush. Ive come close to decking people who grab my harps in beer joints to show the world they can play. Most are just drunk and I keep that in mind. I always keep a blown out harp with me just for that purpose. No one can show you much at your level. Just checkout the site and learn. Good Luck.....
Well actually, as it turns out, he hasn't touched that harmonica in years. He had bought it impulsively, used it for about 1 hour and gave up. So I essentially inherited it :)
I think the best way to find a local harmonica teacher would be to ask at the local music shops. I'll keep practicing and enjoying myself.
As a sude note, I had tried tongue blocking and couldn't manage it. Until today. I simply did it, I had to then think about how I managed it. Which consisted of blocking with my tongue the leftmost hole, and angling my head slightly to the left so only the correct hole has any air flowing through it.
