In Reply to: Lee Oskar or Honner and what am I doing wrong!?! posted by BSA on January 04, 2002 at 19:14:26:
As far as tabs go, I'd throw them out the window. I think the root of the blues begins with the ear and the soul. If it sounds good play on. I bought a wooden C as my first harp and then went online and bought 8 plastic harps for about the same price (all of the forementioned are Hohners). The plastic harps were much easier to break in (although nothing sounds like a good well soaked wood harmonica).I have a Lee Oskar a friend gave me but it's an F#minor and has a circus sound to it. I think Oskar is great, but I'd buy some Hohners if I were you. I'd also pick up some Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee and try to follow along. Works for me. Good Luck!
