Tone color requirements for chromatic blues harmonica
Jul 28, 2018

In the course of practicing, the chromatic blues harmonica practiced the scales and individual syllables repeatedly until you were able to skillfully blow a syllable once. Once you have achieved this control, you can choose some simple songs to practice. Try blowing a lot of syllables at once. The next thing you have to do is to relax your control a little, blowing two or three adjacent holes at a time, adding two or three syllable chords to the song. This will help you further improve your control of your lips and breathing, and make your songs better.


The chromatic scale of the chromatic chromatic harmonica is different from the blues harmonica when operating the chromatic blues harmonica. The chromatic harmonica is more like a piano. The blues harmonica has a unique arrangement for some harmonies and special performances, such as: C. Blues harmonica has two basses 5, but no bass 4 and bass 6 (requires pressure), making many music impossible to use chromatic harmonica. Playing and vice versa.


The chromatic blues harmonica is used in the same reeds so the timbre should be the same, but it is far from it. The chromatic harmonica has a leak-proof diaphragm that makes it very easy to play, and the breath control is very convenient, so the tone is very pure; and the blues harmonica does not have such a diaphragm, so it is quite laborious. There are also a lot of noises (although blues doesn't seem to care about this). The chromatic harmonica also has this diaphragm so it cannot be pressed and super-blowing (but it does not require pressure and super blowing).
