Jimmy Bruno.

I sure like your playing Diggs. Amazing what you can do with a plastic harmonica.

Thanks for listening

I don't think the 2016 is an ordinary plastic. I think the material may have been the forerunner of the stuff they make bullet proof vests out of. Chamber has degrees in music and engineering.

I dig it Diggs!!! Nice band playing from all of you at that time. What happened to the other players that were with you on that performance?

The drummer and bass I have no idea. The guitarist that took the solo is a big wig in the IRS.

The other guitarist is a house dad and home schools his three kids.He also plays classical guitar.

Yep, I know about Chamber Huang. Just making a joke about the 2016. I bought one when they first came out. Personally I didn't like it and ended up trading it off 30 years later.

I bought one of the first 2016's back in 1975 when they first came out. They were designed as a chamber instrument, but I got a chance to see Cham-Ber Huang in the early 80's before he left Hohner to form his own company, he did a performance of classical music at Symphony Hall in Boston, where he not only had the stock 2016 and 2012, but he had his original prototype that had a plexiglass comb, and cover plates and mouth pice/slide assembly made of Sterling Silver, and that one was a clearly a better instrument than what they put out, but it would've been easily 10 times more expensive. The windsavers on that chromatic would fail easily because many of the old time chromatic players thought it was actually too airtight.

Using Garageband on my Macbook Pro, I was able to drop my Chromatic in on an old Marvin Gaye recording of " The Days Of Wine And Roses " . My harp is around 1:47, this was probably one of my earliest experiments with GB. Since then , it's become a kind of hobby to mix myself in with my favorite artist like Stevie Wonder, Marving Gaye , Michael Jackson plus a big varity of Smooth Jazz and Blues instrumentalist. Cheating ? maybe but it's still fun . It's like actually recording with them. That was before I knew about using Backing Tracks.

My second and third Garageband experiments of this Marvin Gaye version.

Two different octaves together. Didn't work as well as I'd hoped but I learned a little something from it.
