Irene,

Thank you for sharing your funny story.  Here, in South West Georgia,  we refer to your adventure as a "hoot".

I love the hymns on the harmonica!!!  My husband plays one and all our 7 sons do too.  I got a laugh for ya all here.  There was an advertisement for a "harp and dulcimer festival in Cospby, Tenn."  I should have learned more about it, but I didn't. I had won two tickets to the mainland and was wanting to use them.  I mailedmy first harp I made and took my hammered dulcimer because I could find no one in Hawaii to teach me.  Welllllllllllll, I got there,  and the harp they were talking about was the harmonica.  ha ha ha.  AND my first harp broke in shipment, but one guy there fixed it and that's just fine.  I still have harp #1. I loved that time of our 25th wedding anniversary 29 years ago.   It sure would have been easier just to have taken the harmonica and my mountain dulcimer.  That was the first festival I'd been to.  we camped out in a tent and paid $.25 for a shower....we'd take several quarters to go shower with.  Jean Shilling and husband were wonderful folks.  The other attendees were a little stand offish looking at Tomasi and I could see them questioning????   So the next day I asked him to wear his HAWAIIAN PIG HUNTING SHIRT.   ahhhhhhh, then they figured out the first Hawaiian (Tongan) they had met.  We had a wonderful time!!!

Terry I wasn't totally sure how I'd feel about hymns played on a harmonica... but this is just GREAT!  So full of heart and feeling.

Hats off to you!  clapper

Why thank you Lisa.   I played this song a little faster than usual for this video. Why?  I don't know.

I thought I would post a very short video playing a tremolo harmonica.  I have been playing off and on now for about 4 years.  I do not attempt to play blues, or 2nd position.  Just the melody, in 1st position.  I find that I can  accompany the dulcimer and ukulele with the harmonica, to add color.  You don't have to be great to do this, just decent and brave.
