How to improve the expressiveness of polyphonic harmonica
Aug 21, 2017

Whether it is blowing classical music, or modern pop songs, if it is just a dry blow a sound, it will give people a dull feeling. This involves a problem: how to improve expressiveness with the method of transforming timbre.

Accompaniment, can be accompanied by the change in the effect of the climax. (such as the orchestra)

But when you use the harmonica, most of the solo, want to improve the performance, in addition to the performers themselves into the feelings, but also need a certain skill. My ideal method is to change the timbre at the right time.

Polyphonic harmonica, commonly used to the tone is about the following: Mono-tone (can be compressed), polyphonic play (mono), polyphony (air accompaniment, size accompaniment), chords (3, 5 degrees, decomposition chords), violin, hand quake, ...

These kinds of timbre, should pay attention to realize the difference. Here we recommend several transformation methods commonly used in music.

At the beginning of the song, generally with a single tone, with a calm beginning to heighten the climax, such as the beginning of all kinds of accompaniment, unavoidably abrupt.

Excessive portions (generally in 3rd, 5 of the phrase, with a chord turning to a chord as a sign). The first half of the sentence is polyphonic,

The second half of the sentence is best to return to polyphonic, so that the feeling of the people, to the climax to pave the way.

The climax part. The top half of the phrase should be polyphonic, and the volume should be enhanced to give prominence, and to use and tone according to the situation.

The first half of the climax and the sound, the second half of the sentence best again back to the mono, and the tone. This sudden turn, so that the tone of the harmonica tone, the melody in the climax of the promotion and matting, the melodious sound to play until!

The end section, usually with a few 3 degrees and tones of polyphonic, ends up with a long tone of violin playing.

Cheerful music, can also be a 3 degree or 5 degrees and the end of the tone, the band Strong.

This is all, I would like to understand the method, to be comfortable to use.
