Ever wonder what that arc in a chromatic mouthpiece is designed for? I explain that in this video. The arc is important and don't make the mistake of many and "fix" it for us.

I play this tune in -Eb-. On harmonica I am playing the 1st verse on an 1847 BOLD (LowBb) that is Country Tuned. This gives me the major 7th without an advanced technique. On the 2nd verse, I use a standard (Bb) and play the overblow on hole 5 to get the major7th. It should be noted that the song uses both the major 7th and the dominant 7th. You can purchase the 1847 BOLD (Low Tuned) harps here Have questions about overblow or any other topic, email me here
This is my version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. I'm using a (G) harp in standard tuning as well as one in Easy 3rd. Here is a backing track version. The 1st verse is played and the 2nd and 3rd are open.
This is an 1847 Classic BOLD (LowC). It is Country Tuned so the 5 draw is raised 1/2 step. This allows for the playing of the major 7th note. You may purchase an 1847 from me here Product questions? Contact ME
