: I m just starting to learn how to play the harmonica
: and I just asked in the shop which harmonica will be good to start with:
: They gave me Big River Harp in A
: I was wondering if I should start with a C
: or with another model ?
Not bad for starters. Our pastor says, when asked which version of the Bible is best: "the one you read!". The same philosophy applies here for the harmonica: the one you play. (A) is a great harp, both for straight playing and cross harp. You may find the lower notes a little difficult at first, but keep at it and you'll do fine. (C) is the preferred starting harp, it's right in the middle and no sharps or flats to confuse those with little musical backround.
Or be safe, get a C harp and use both!
Keep a harpin'
