notation Vs. Tabs; The best of Both worlds with Notation program: "MuseScore"

I'm Not trying to open up a bear-hole here, the discussion amongst harmonica players whether to read music or play by tabs is Never-ending and will Never see an end to it, so that's NOT what this is…Continue

Hi hilvert, thanks foryour comments I played at the NEC last March, I think Im going back there again next March but dont know any dates yet, probably written down on a bit of paper somewhere so if I can and have the available time I may be able to nip down to Coventry and visit your group if that is OK would be good to learn from you.

 I suppose being from Scotland;,or any country, you get surrounded by the area's sounds that get ingrained  onto/into you whether you want it or not! I suppose everyone has to develop themselves to move away from the core sounds to look over the wall and see other things its good to the the similarities in Scots, Irish, Celtic, American music and at the same time the differences as well. listen to a note, a cord , a phrasing, a sound , a rhythm, a style and think I want to give that a try.may take months,years to getit "right" some may never do it, but the fun is giving it a go. It is a stange but wonderful thing that you can recognise a great musician or singer, no matter what country,region background

they come from its the magic of their performance that makes you stop what you are doing and listen. Then you come to players like me  that make you shut windows barricade the doors and stuff ears tightly with cotton wool !! Enjoy music and dont let any one stop you  having a go. best wishes Iain

Hi Hilvert good to hear from you  and a fellow NHL member too! I play just about anything from trad to classical all depends what mood I'm in !!! Ive played in bands all over Scotland many years ago mainly Scots, an Country Dance band stuff but due to various reasons but mainly got fed up with the more commercial "skitch" but I also wanted to develop into other forms of music, I now want to go back to "roots" and rediscover the proper trad music again, I agree with the breathing on the "C"  a good diaphram is worth its weight in gold. I do like you website for Coventry was tempted to join but it is a bit of a distance to travel too! but power to your elbow.Music is a wonderful thing,a few notes can totally change an atmosphere of a place yet it is gone within seconds only to haunt the memory of those that were there, it appeals to those who study and can read music and yet can be surpassed by those who cant read a note or never taken a lesson, and that is what I like, play what you want and play it the way you want to play it but learn from others  and give it a go!

best wishes Iain

Hello Hilvert! 

I was thinking your name was Dutch when I saw it on Facebook. Thanks for the kind words on my inniative, I hope that it will eventually grow but even with only a few people it can be good. I would just like to hear other people play traditional harmonica, for inspiration but also because I just really enjoy the music. I'm looking forward to your music! 

The subject of tabs is an interesting one. I usually learn by ear but because I have a tendency to forget I find tabs quite useful to me as a way to remember a song that I haven't mastered. I do think it would be better to learn "normal" music notation, but most of the traditional music seems so "free" that I don't feel like it is captured very well with the normal music notation... it's also harder to share. Nevertheless, I have great respect for the people that can read it and play at the same time. 

Anyway, thanks for joining, tell your friends, haha
