Re: ryans harmonica

depends on what song.

the only one i really know is come pick me up. it's capo on 3 and the harp is a B flat.
i think call me on your way back home is B flat, too. cant say for sure without it with me.

if you catch my drift, a lot of his songs are with a b flat harp.

Re: ryans harmonica

Come pick me up is played with an Eb harmonica, he plays it cross harp meaning he draws most of the notes to utilize bends. Bb will sound ok, but not quite as good. He also uses Eb on Firecracker and I taught myself how to grow old.

Re: ryans harmonica

Can you? I played that with a Bb for months and it just never sounded quite right to me. When i got the Eb it just all clicked.

Maybe we can post recordings or something to compare?

i'll put one up in the morning, everyone here is asleep, and i dont think they would take kindly to harp blowing.

...but good job, man.
you made me rethink my Bb position a little bit. i might just have to to get an Eb just so i can alternate when i feel like it. haha.

edit: after taking CPMU into my editing program and slowing it down, i can hear the crossharp.

i yield, sir.
but i'm still gonna post mine, because i think it's still pretty accurate.

Re: ryans harmonica

I forgot about this thread! Haha!

And yeah, that's Eb. The vast majority of times dude harps it up, it's and Eb with a capo on the 3rd. That's (as previously stated) CPMU, Firecracker, To Be The One, Dance All Night, Call Me On Your Way..., etc.

Desire is a G with capo 5. Pretty sure Hallelujah and One For The Rose is an A, no capo.

Re: ryans harmonica

Glad I found this posting. I slid my cap up to the fourth fret and used an E harmonica in my limited arsenal and it started to make sense! Thanks. Just ordered an E flat and B flat.
