I have a M.Brother Flying Eagle 48 hole harmonica. I play guitar, so I know some music theory but I don't know if it's a chord or a tremolo harmonica. How do I know which it is? Also, how can I learn to play it? There aren't any teachers around me.

You can learn to play it on your own by blocking holes with your tongue so only one note at a time sounds when you blow or draw. Start at the low end on the left. Blow. That will most likely be C. Carry on blowing and sucking each hole until you work out the whole major scale. That's four holes. It then repeats the pattern. You can play two chords. Blow makes C major, draw makes a sort of G9.
