    I have been given a Hohner-Chromonica 270 for a gift but I feel it is out of tune. I read music and play the organ and guitar but I want to learn your method. I am thinking about buying the Peidmont set for the price of $20.64 or the 7 Blues set of $39.00 Please tell me your thoughts about this as I am an American living here in New Zealand for the past 35 years. I come to Hawaii quiet often for a holiday. I am 75 years young. Thank you, jim crain sr. I will probably upgrade later.

      Hi Jim, Thanks for writing! You’ll need a diatonic harmonica to play along with my lessons. If you are on a budget I recommend the Hohner Blues Band set of 7 to get started with. And do look me up when you come to town! jp

    Hi J P,
    Cost is no object. If I get a set of harmonicas then I can play in several keys. I don’t want to be stuck in the one key all the time. I could get the 7 set and the special 20 if you reccommend this. Thank you for your time. jim crain sr.

    J.P. Thanks for your e-mails. I am trying to learn some songs. I am so pumped up for it. I clicked on your free harmonica tab on the e-mail you sent me then I clicked on Country Road take me home and it tells me problem loading page. it does it on all the songs from the email that you sent me. was wondering if it was a broken link. not sure. But thanks anyway . I am looking forward to more news from you.

    Thanks Karen

    I bought J.P.’s first lesson bundle last week got myself a hohner crossover delivered Monday and got stuck in with the lessons.
    Now only after 3 days of lessons and exercise I am sounding completely different than what I did Monday!

    This is great on lesson 20 now and cannot wait to get up to the bending lessons.
    Will be ordering the special blues package soon.

    Many thanks J..P.

    This package of you for beginners like me is great!!
