Hello folk, Just a quick question about the above harp. Does the slide enter from both sides or just the right hand side as I"ve been looking at one on ebay which has the knob nearest the 1st hole. Any advice I"d be grateful thanks.

I don't know which one you are looking at, but it's more likely that it's photographed backwards. If you are looking at the front cover and the button is to the left, then the covers have probably been put on backwards.

Thanks for your reply Elk river. Since the post I"ve bought the harp and I reckon that the owner must have taken it apart at some stage and put it back wrongly. Maybe they fancied themselves as jimi hendricks you know playing the guitar upside down etc.. Glad that it led me to this site anyway. I"ve lots of things I need to ask you lot in time. Thanks.

For some reason, I thought the slide could be reversed.

Some players, like classical virtuoso Cham-Ber Huang have actually had them specially made for left handed playing.

Then there's the late William Clarke, who played his harps upside down!

He did, much like Sonny Terry because he was left handed.

I've heard that Paul Butterfield also played "upside down" - also left-handed.

That's also true too.

i also play upside down ,i really dont know why ,but when i started playing in 1969, i read somewhere to hold the harp anyway that is comfortable for you .when i started there was only one book on blues harp ,and it was writen by tony little sun glover ,i still have that book .oh yea im left handed also ,i guess that has something to do with it
