12 years ago I bought my first chromatic (Hohner Chromonica 270), like many bluesplayers I was playing in a Litlle Walter or George Smith fashion (at least I tried). Playing mostly in the keys of C, D, and Eb.

The last couple of months I'm working on G and F.

Just a gigolo / I ain't got nobody (in G)

Hope you like it, let me know.

That's excellent to do as most players don't go beyond 3rd position. George Smith also played chromatic in 1st position as well and some tunes he's doing this are Chicago City and Boogie 'N' With George on the Now You Can Talk About MeCD and Monkey On A Limb on his Arkansas Trap album. He, like a few of his other pupils also used 270's in other keys, (William Clarke learned chromatic from him as did Piazza and KIm Wilson) tuned to Bb, F, G and sometimes A.

Bob, thanks for the info. The Now You Can Talk About MeCD and Harmonica Ace (Modern)CD are 2 of my favorite Smith album's. I'd never heard of the Arkansas Trap album but really like Monkey On A Limb. Was the album ever released on CD?

Arkansas Trap was reissued on a CD, tho I'm not sure if it's still in print. However, what I suggest you do is check probably the best internet blues CD store, hands down, which is http://www.bluebeatmusic.com, which is run by a very knowledgeable California Blues DJ named Charlie Lange. His prices are very competitive with places like http://www.amazon.com, http://www.cduniverse.comand often has stuff no one else has. Be forwarded: you could easily go broke just looking at that site with all the stuff he's got there, and tell Charlie I sent you.
