: i been playing the diatonic for about 3 1/2 months now and wanna know how hard it is to start learning chromatic, before i put my money into a lost cuase.
Three and a half months is a very short time musically. The Chromatic is not hard to start, however staying focused and becoming a good player takes time and dedication. The patterns will be different if your into second position diatonic blues. The chromatic is a very versatile instrument, and opens many doors. I would focus on the diatonic first, learn the notes on say a key of C. Then when you buy a Chromatic get a key of C, notice the difference in the note layout, and you will have a good foundation to start from. I wish you all the best.
I would rather be good on one instrument, than
mediocre on many. Just one persons opinion, all the best to you...............bluz
p.s. Patrick, all's well....... Thanks
