Hello Harmonica Lovers,
The harmonica is an instrument that loves interacting with others instruments in the band. Some band use the harmonica as a fill instrument around other music some bands use the harmonica player as a front man & lead singer in the band. Blues Bands are famous for this which puts the focus on the Harmonica Player/Singer. There are a couple of exceptions like Willie Nelson’s harmonica player Mickey Raphael and The J Geils Band harmonica player Magic Dick who just play harmonica in the band. Magic Dick is one of the most famous harmonica players in the world to this day I wrote a earlier post on him on my website which you can see here….. A lot of well known artist use harmonica as an accompaniment with other instruments in the band. I have some examples of pictures below and artist below. Like (The Blues Brothers) & (Willie Nelson & Mickey Raphael )
Hello harmonica Lovers!
The harmonica played with any instrument like the Guitar, Saxophone, Keyboards and Drums and many other instruments always adds to the music. The harmonica can also be played while playing the guitar at the same time because of a harmonica holder that fits around your neck to hold the harmonica so that your hands are free to play the guitar. Most Musicians that play this style play Folk music or Blues it does limits your hand positions on the harmonica for effects that you can create with the harmonica.
You can see where having the harmonica neck holder allows the musician to be free with there hands to be able to play the guitar at the same time.
Here in these pictures it shows a harmonica playing with a Saxophone player on the left and a harmonica playing with a Drummer on the right.
The Harmonica is a very versatile instrument!
