: I'll tell ya what Starqle. I can't count how many pounds I've lost from skipped meals in payment of playin' harp...like now! But I always bring a bottle of mouthwash with me for after eating. It's quick, it starilizes and easier than brushing. Water and Listerine is a good combo. That and always rinse the harp after play. Simple, done...now go and jam!
Hey Slip Kid,
I enjoy your contributions to this site.
However, I was alarmed when I read your advice to "always rinse the harp after play." Please tell us, your fellow harmonica enthusiasts, musicians and members of your loyal public that this was a typographical error!
Haven't enough harmonicas been ruined by such practices as boiling, soaking along with other moist methods of destruction?
: : With school and all, I don't always find the time to practice. I hate that, as I LOVE the harp, and actually want to get good at it. However, at lunch, I'm usually bored with nothing to do...
: : what's the best course of action? take a tooth brush and tooth paste to school to make sure my precious, precious instrument doesn't get harmed? just play after I eat and wash the harpo itself more often? or accept the fact that instruments break and that I'll have to but a new one eventually anyway, and feel lucky that harmonicas don't cost THAT much? any other possible solutions?
