Diatonic Harp
Reference

These pages cover the diatonic harmonica, from beginning tips to advanced techniques, with harp-related music theory, in-depth discussions, and sample sound clips of dozens of different techniques.  There is advice to help you choose which harp to get, what keys to get first, and much more.  Remember, "You've never got it; you're just getting it better and better."

Featured Song: The LORD's Prayer

My Quill

We breathe through the harmonica,
Our breath gives life to the music,
hidden,
within it.
Without eyes or fingers
we search and probe its
mysteries
with our mind and tongue,
our determination,
our heart.

Mike Will

We surround it with our hands,
embrace it with our lips,
hide it from the world.
We are deceived by its simplicity,
moulded by its trickery,
daunted by its complexity,
joyful at its capacity
to speak
Music.
