Practice with a tuner, and with backing tracks to develop your ear.

If one manages to slip past Rodrick that means I get to swing the ban hammer. :D   I have done that 3 or 4 times in the 3 weeks or so I have been a mod.  Roderick is doing a great job at catching them.

I saw the 1000 members waiting for approval. I am sure it took a few hours for you to sort out that mess.  I am glad that the CAPTCHA thing is working for you.  They are a little bit annoying sometime, but they save the admins a lot of work.

I just catch the occasional one that manages to slip through the cracks, you have been doing the heavy lifting.

I just wanted to say thanks to Rodrick and Karl for the hard work they do filtering out the spammers on this site.  I wasn't aware that 100 or more tries to get into this board every day, until recently.    You are doing a fine job at keeping this site safe and spam free.

I often play a simple song or two to help warm up both me and the instrument as well as run a scale or two.  Those are excellent ways to start a session.

Antropy,

Karl offers a method book (with CD's) on the Mountain Ocarina site.  It is excellent and will teach you much of what you need to know about playing music.

Actually it is a B and an E.  The B note is below the official range of the CODA so I would go with the the E.  Later on you may want to learn how to shade the fipple with your lower lip and it would be good practice for that.

If you are into older tunes you can find countless songs in ABC notation which can be converted into standard sheet music either with an app or an online tool.   Here are a few links to get you started:

It is amazing how much trouble sharps and flats can cause. >:(
It is so easy to get lost when you have sharps and flats. The more you have the worse it gets.  :-\  ???  ;D

I agree, I only got up to 3 of each on the MO.  Any more than that and the fingerings just start getting crazy complicated.

You made the right decision Karl.  Speaking as a long time harmonica player I can say that switching holes is not a problem.

I like the CODA but it will never replace my first love - Harmonica.  When I hear a song I think in Harmonica, it is an extension of my own body.

Wow that is some injury(s)  I am glad that you pulled through and can get around.  Most people wouldn't have survived a fall like that.

That first on sounds way too cool.  I wonder if they have an Android version?

I use Pano tuner.  It is a fully chromatic tuner that will work with any instrument.   It is free with ads or you and register it and use it ad free for a couple dollars.
