I know that melody songs can be easily played on a chromatic harmonica. I have horner Chrometta 12 as well as Horner golden melody. However I feel tunes from 10 holes diatonic harmonica are better than that of chromatic. Also note transitions are better in 10 holes diatonic. Also as 10 holes diatonic harmonica are far more smaller, it is easier to hold and can get better wah-wah effect.
From these reasons, I am trying to play melody songs in 10 holes diatonic harmonica. However, I face some problems while playing few notes on the song. I am playing in key of C. Below is the C major scale:
C D E F G A B C
So songs in the key of C may includes the note 'A'. To produce the sound of note A, I need to bend by drawing in the 3rd hole. However, the 'A' sound produce by bending is odd compare to other notes which are produce without bending. I am trying to play the below notes:
The problem occurs when I play the last note (A).
I am not sure whether this oddness of A note is because of my poor bending technique or is it a problem in my harmonica. I am using Horner Golden Melody (Key of C). Just want to know if melody song can be played properly in 10 hole diatonic harmonica.
Also please share if there is any videos that plays such songs. (i.e. include bending notes while playing melody).
