I’ve not made any progress on the banjo (one of my other goals). I didn’t get on with the bass guitar either. I think I’m just not a stringed instrument kinda guy. I admit I also bought both of those instruments on a whim. Would probably have been better off if I hadn’t.
However, the Harmonica I’m taking to like a duck to water. Very early on in an online course, but really enjoying it. Taking on board each new thing and finding it considerably easier to pick up than anything with strings!
Would like to get a solid grounding in the basics, then expand from there. Maybe I’ll find it’s where my musical passion lies. Still want to learn to play an instrument and be able to make some music, hopefully this is third time lucky. As I’ve said, it’s coming to me a lot more naturally than the bass or banjo ever did.
Who knows, maybe it’ll be a foundation for understanding that damn five string banjo. Then again, perhaps not… 5 months ago
Μολις ειχα τελειωσει το δημοτικο, στα δωδεκατα γενεθλια μου, μου ειχαν κανει δωρο μια φυσαρμονικα που με συντροφευει μεχρι σημερα! Ηταν η πρωτη μου επαφη με μουσικο οργανο και φυσικο ειναι να με παρασυρει αμεσως ο ηχος της. 3 μερες μετα και αφου ειχαν κουραστει ολοι να ακουν τις παραφωνες προσπαθειες μου, εγραψα την πρωτη μου μελωδια την οποια ακομα και σημερα παιζω οταν θελω να χαλαρωσω. Απο τοτε εχω εξοικειωθει πολυ περισσοτερο με τη φυσαρμονικα μου και αποτελει αναποσπαστο κομματι σε καθε μου ταξιδι. Προτεινω ανεπιφυλακτα να προσπαθησετε να μαθετε μονοι σας αλλα αποτελει και ενα υπεροχο δωρο για κοντινα σας ατομα! 7 months ago
you just aren’t motivating. This is another one of those goals that frustrate me when I see it, because I “should” do it but I’m not.
I’m not getting rid of the harmonica and the associated book, just putting it in my Some Day Box and focusing attention elsewhere. 14 months ago
If I could just do what’s in this 9 min. video, I’d be doing pretty good. 16 months ago
When I started reading Ch. 3 I figured out that I really need the CD that accompanies the hard copy of the book. As luck would have it, they do not carry the physical version of the book in my library. Shux! I am not deterred but I sure wish I had that CD!
Oh and btw, I “borrowed” a brand new Hohner Marine Band Special 20 from a friend who’s never gonna use it, she had a stack of harps in every key for a class that she dropped. 17 months ago
