Christmas Ideas For The Harmonica Player

Yes it’s Christmas again and at about this time of year everyone in business has a party and the secret Santa gift syndicate takes place. You know your colleagues chip in a fiver or a tenner and go out to find the most inappropriate piece of nonsense they can find for you. Well show this article to a friend or a relative who is stuck for what to give you some christmas ideas for the harmonica player.

The advantage of having this book in Kindle format is that you can read it anytime even on a train on your smart phone. Skim through a section of this book and maybe even clear your self a seat or a carriage in the train by practising your harp!
This deep river harp by Hohner represents the best value of any lasting harmonica available on the market. I suspect Hohner introduced it to try and stem the number of serious harmonica players who moved to the ‘Lee Oskar” range of harmonicas almost 20 years ago now. I will give you a demonstration of this harp next week when time allows on Youtube.
