    Sante Sana Tanzania Two Hornpipes Wexford Carol Click a link to listen The harmonica is commonly known as a harp though that can cause puzzlement I often get asked at gigs why the harmonica gets called by the same name as the true harp the big one with strings My answer is generally that its common names mouth harp and blues harp became abbreviated to harp for short I ll often blow or draw a glissando across all holes to demonstrate that it sounds similar to the arpeggio sound of a real harp hence the mouth harp name There is an affinity in the physical construction too both instruments have a linear array of notes from low to high so that could have played a part in the harmonica getting the mouth harp moniker For me the connection is closer as the stringed harp plays a significant role in Irish traditional music a genre for which I have an enduring passion It s the national intrument of Ireland and there is a considerable body of beautiful tunes composed on the harp by the great 17th 18th century master Turlough O Carolan From the occassional session with Irish harpists over the

bigger than the diatonic harps and this is very suitable for the irish music Really nice harps Brendan The book is suitable for any person beginner or professional it covers almost everything you need to know about harmonicas and irish music The half valving of the harps gives the player more opportunities of variations and more expression Personally this fits me very well Keep up the good work and

Below is a sample of what can be found in the book as well as three tracks from the accompanying CD Since the release of my album New Irish Harmonica in 1994 I had numerous requests for an instructional package that would explain the techniques and tunings that I used on the album Many also asked for help in learning the tunes recorded on it as they wanted to be able to play along This book CD is the answer to those requests it uses several of the tunes from New Irish Harmonica as a basis for learning WHY THE BLUES HARP FOR IRISH MUSIC Traditional Irish music can be played on all three types of solo harmonica chromatic double reed diatonic and single reed diatonic I play the chromatic and the common 10 hole diatonic harmonica also known as the short harp or blues harp harp is a term harmonica players use to refer to any kind of harmonica don t ask why To make things simple I decided to aim this instructional package at just the blues harp I ve now also completed an instructional method for my approach to playing Irish music on the Chromatic Harmonica The little ten hole diatonic is the biggest selling instrument in the world by units about 20 million sold annually It has become known as the blues harp because its earthy wailing sound has become inextricably linked to blues from the earliest beginnings of the music from the acoustic country blues of Sonny Terry to the amplified Chicago sound of giants like Little Walter It was the innate soulfulness of the diatonic harp that attracted the blues players to the instrument but it s less well known that the so called blues harp is also wonderfully suited to playing Irish and other Celtic music The emotive fiery nature of the traditional dance tunes and slow airs suits such an expressive instrument and the unique tuning and close hole spacing of the blues harp makes it a bit easier to play the fast runs and tricky interval leaps involved than on other types of harmonica However the diatonic harmonica is very much a new kid on the block in a style dominated by the fiddle flute whistle and pipes and playing techniques are still in an interesting state of discovery and evolution There are various approaches adopted by the small but growing band of players who are experimenting with the blues harp in Irish and other Celtic music including different embouchures used eg tongue blocking vs puckering various tunings and different kinds of decorations Some of the diatonic maestros I ve learned from are the inspirational Pip and John Murphy from Wexford real rootsy players and great stylists Rick Epping who often plays diatonic harp in a rack accompanied by his evocative concertina playing and Mark Graham whose very dexterous work can be heard to good effect with fiddler Kevin Burke You can also learn a lot about how to use the instrument from diatonic harmonica players in other related styles of music like Breton Scottish French Canadian Nothumbrian Appalachian etc From these and other influences I ve developed my own approach over the years and the book CD package concentrates on explaining and demonstrating it It s really an instruction method for how I play Irish music on the blues harp and not how to play it as there is always more than one way to skin a cat If you love the instrument and the music you should use every opportunity to listen to the playing of others in the same field and try developing your own unique style from all the ideas you pick up And don t restrict yourself to harmonica players listen to pipes fiddle box whistle etc THE KEYS YOU NEED As far as Irish music goes the way the blues harp tuning is set up makes it easiest to play in the key of the harmonica for major scale tunes This is what harp players refer to as straight harp but in general musical terms is better referred to as the Ionian mode Minor tunes are almost invariably in either the Dorian mode so called 3 rd position or the Aeolian mode 4 th position There is the odd tune in the Mixolydian mode cross harp or 2 nd position and some tunes are in pentatonic scales scales that use just 5 of the 7 scale notes and can sound either major or minor You ll hear how these modes sound later on The two main harps you ll need for traditional Irish music are in the keys of D and G This is because most traditional Irish tunes have been composed and played on fiddle and those are the easiest and most comfortable major keys for that instrument On just these two harps you ll be able to play easily in the home key and several related keys or modes without bends or overblows D Harp Common Modes D Ionian Em Dorian Bm Aeolian Less Common A Mixolydian G Lydian pentatonic F m Phrygian pentatonic G Harp Common Modes G Ionian Am Dorian Em Aeolian Less Common D Mixolydian C Lydian pentatonic Bm Phrygian pentatonic TABLATURE AND MUSICAL NOTATION There are different ways of writing harmonica tab but the system I ve adopted in the book uses numbers to denote the air channel on the harmonica 1 10 and simple plus or minus symbols above the number to indicate breath A plus sign means blow the hole indicated and a minus sign means draw the hole indicated Here s how they look 7 7 6 6 5 That means blow hole 7 draw hole 7 draw 6 blow 6 blow 5 It s very simple really and you ll soon get pretty quick at reading the tablature Tab doesn t show note duration or other inflections you can get that information from listening to the CD and reading the standard musical dots Like all forms of music notation it s not an end in itself just a guide to help find the notes on the harp so you can throw it aside and really play THREE SAMPLE TUNES FROM THE BOOK Obviously in the book there is a lot of in depth info about how to get a clean note and good tone on the harmonica with simple exercises to help get you started Once you have mastered the basics here are an exercise and two of the tunes that are explored in detail in the book SLIDE FILL TRIPLETS G harp This is from the extensive section on how to ornament the tunes demonstrating a common triplet figure In the audio clip from the CD the figure is played slowly at first and then faster to make it easier to learn HEAR HOW THIS SOUNDS ON THE BLUES HARP THE MAIDS OF MITCHELSTOWN G Harp I was taught this reel by Dublin harmonica player Mick Kinsella and it s become one of my favourite Irish tunes I could play it for ages without getting bored Note that smooth fill triplet being used again and the variation of jaw flick ornamentation with tongue triplets etc Keep varying your decoration to keep it interesting for you and the listener To me The Maids sounds sweetest at an easy tempo as it allows one to get extra soul out of the notes especially that 6 draw note in the A part However you ll often hear it played at breakneck speed in sessions There are no hard and fast rules on the tempos of the tunes Obviously if you re in a pub session and someone strikes up a set of reels you know it s important to have the chops to keep up if you want to join in the crack But if you re playing on your own or in your own performance just play them as they feel and sound best to you HEAR HOW THIS SOUNDS ON THE BLUES HARP SWEENY S POLKA G Harp Polkas often seem childish in the simplicity of their melodies but don t overlook them because of that As the tune is so basic you can really concentrate on the groove and they can become almost hypnotic in their drive and intensity HEAR HOW THIS SOUNDS ON THE BLUES HARP BUYERS COMMENTS Play Irish Music on the Blues Harp is one of the most practical effective and inspiring book CDs that I have ever used This deceptively slim volume contains some very potent highly distilled lessons that zero in on the most important aspects of playing Irish music on the diatonic harp I had been playing Irish music and fiddle tunes for years and did not need the very beginning exercises but the intermediate advanced exercises were highly useful Tough at the Top is a clever and fun way to get your act together on the top octave and the Polkas played in different keys are fun to play and people enjoy hearing them unlike many chop expanding pieces that send folks to the doors The Paddy Richter tuning is the single most effective tuning that I have used for playing fiddle tunes I really really resist using alternative tunings but this one is such a gem that I can no longer live without it it really makes the harp come alive in the low end especially for the faster passages and major minor tunes The other thing I really like about this is that you have done the work of sifting through probably thousands of tunes to come up with a small collection of really great classic tunes that cover a vast amount of techniques that transfer to all sorts of other music Discovering the set dance King of The Faries alone is worth the price of admission for me I probably have received at least the equivalent of 500 worth of personal instruction delivered to me at exactly the right time by having this book CD available for me to dip into whenever I want Practicing these tunes and exercises has made me into a much better player thank you so much RICHARD SLEIGH Pennsylvania USA Richard is one of the top harp customisers check his website Hi Brendan I started working with your book yesterday and I really like it because you explain things in a way that make it easy to understand and the slow versions are excellent for training The Harps are very good too I retuned some Hering harps to the Paddy tuning myself but with valves the

    the first few notes of his blindingly fast licks and laboriously moved the needle back and forth on the record trying to catch them as they flew by It seemed hopeless until I noticed the 16rpm button on my old turntable I flicked it and suddenly Charlie started to play at a pace that seemed half human though an octave lower in pitch Even at half speed it wasn t easy to master his style as the scale he used was different to the standard blues scale I d got used to and the rhythm was different to the shuffles I was by now familiar with but after a bit of time I started to absorb the main elements It was several months before I could keep up with the records at full speed but when that happened I really felt I was starting to make progress There was one track of Charlie s I couldn t work out though because there seemed to be a note in there that wasn t on my harp I knew he was playing crossed style but there was a note between 5 draw and 6 blow he was getting that I couldn t I realized his harp must be tuned differently and wondered how that was done I got a few pointers off an accordion repair man about the basic concepts took the covers off and tried filing the end of that 5 draw reed up a semitone Within a few seconds I d filed right through it and had to throw the harp away However after a bit more practice I got it right and then started to try and get a handle on this weird sounding new tuning It was only one note different from a standard instrument but what a change it made to the mood and feeling of the music You could play sweeter more lyrical stuff but still with the expressiveness of the cross harp position with all its juicy draw bends That really opened a can of worms and soon I was inside those harps tinkering away with all kinds of modifications I didn t like the way the draw reeds always seemed louder than the blows down the bottom end of the harp and borrowed an idea from the chromatic harmonica to try and balance up the volume while still allowing natural draw bends I had a chrom but never played it so cannibalised some of its windsaver valves and glued them on the inside of the draw reedplate At first it felt strange but my technique soon adjusted to the lower breath pressure required and I found they made the harp far more expressive Not only did they balance up the volume but you could bend those bottom six blow notes and put vibrato on them That was in 1978 Without realising it I had invented a new kind of harmonica the half valved diatonic From then to now I ve still playedhalf valved harps pretty much exclusively I finished my university studies at the end of 1979 By this stage I was well hooked on music but had yet to consider it as a career However from playing around the odd bluegrass venue in Christchurch I got asked to record on the debut album of a country singer called Patsy Riggir The session was in Wellington in 1980 and it was enough of a draw to make me move there I dossed in an old flat with a few other poverty stricken musicians and a far more well off prostitute and kept practicing I remember I was especially into the fiddle styles of players like Byron Berline Vassar Clements and Johhny Gimble Eventually the recording session happened It was my first time in a studio and I was very green but the style of music was familiar by now and I put all my Charlie McCoy licks to good use Everyone was happy and I got paid I walked out the door with a big smile on my face feeling ten foot tall That was it I was going to be a professional musician no matter what The guitarist on the session was a nice bloke called Red McKelvy who told me that if I came to Auckland he d be able to recommend me for session work on TV jingles etc So in 81 I moved there dossing on friends sofas initially I started to get a bit of paid music work from sessions and playing in country and blues bands However it was a hand to mouth existence much of the time and stayed that way through most of the 80 s Murray Grindley New Zealand s King of the Jingles told me that if I could play chromatic I d get more sessions I dusted off the unused one or two I d bought back in Christchurch and started to try and get a half decent sound out of them The way you couldn t bend the notes as on a diatonic really frustrated me as did the scale layout However I loved the sound great players like Stevie Wonder Toots Thielemans and Tommy Reilly made on chromatics and knew it was worth sussing out the instrument for myself By now I was pretty clued up on tuning and other modifications and had a whole set of home made half valved 11 hole diatonics with a major seventh Country Tuning I realised that if I tuned the chromatic to something similar I could half valve it too and bend those draw notes That made quite a bit of difference although the chrom is a lot harder to get airtight and sounding crisp I still favoured the diatonic but at least now had a chromatic that was more user friendly to my style of playing and slowly got more and more comfortable with it I d invented a new harmonica in the process the half valved bendable chromatic Using my customised chromatics
