In Reply to: Does SHEET MUSIC and HARMONICA just not go together?? posted by CanHarp on June 05, 2002 at 16:08:56:
With practice, you can read almost anything with harmonica. Most of the people that read though, use a chromatic harmonica in C because all the notes are available, you don't have to bend to make notes, and the actual note pitches are always in the same location. On differnt keys of diatonics, the name of the note and the pitch changes based on the key of diatonic that you have (there is a chart in the theory sectiion on this site showing all the keys and the notes on them). This makes it very hard to read music in different keys on different diatonics. I think in music they call this a "movable do", which is not good for reading.
: Does anyone write sheet music for harmonica, and not in tab form? Is it possible to read sheet music and play it on harmonica?
: I just was curious as to whether sheet music and harmonica playing ever come into musical contact with each other?
