Details

Great low-cost gift for would-be crossharp players!

"Happy Birthday To You" is one in my series of "how-to-play-crossharp" song lessons. Crossharp is that style of play in which the harp's 2 "draw" and 3 "blow" holes become the tonal center, instead of the 1, 4, 7 "blows." Crossharp is what you're used to hearing in blues or C&W (as opposed to cowboy or Dylan songs). It's notorious for its "bent," bluesy sound.

This item includes:
• .mp4 file of "Happy Birthday To You" played the "crossharp" way. Notes of song are illustrated "bouncing-ball, sing-along" style as the tune plays (see pic 2-5). Arrow over harmonica hole indicates whether to blow or draw on that particular hole. Video will be immediately downloadable, via Etsy, upon purchase.

I just received my FlashHarp necklace in the mail and rushed to review it shortly after fiddling with it a bit. This is a very fun item, and I'm so happy I bought it. I feel like the FlashHarp could've been invented to suit me! I'm a graphic designer who loves to play harmonica (though my playing ability is questionable.) I was searching Etsy for fashionable flash-drive necklaces so I can always have one handy while working, saw this and just knew I had to put aside a bit of $$ to purchase it! A while back, my little sister gifted me a miniature harmonica necklace that I love very much, but its primary purpose was fashion. This is like a step up from something I already loved so much -- it's playable and a flash drive! A+ from me! :D

FAQs

I was in my backyard when the idea for my handmade, patented FlashHarp® harmonica USB came to me. Also, all 10 of the lessons I preload on the FlashHarp take place in my backyard, nine of which take advantage of the oversized FlashHarp I built—you guessed it—in my backyard.
Unlike ordinary harmonicas, FlashHarp has a unique set of feature/benefits to keep players—especially beginners—from turning into quitters... 1) FlashHarp's novelty delights all who see it. So learners stay stoked. 2) FlashHarp's usefulness keeps it handy. So its players keep playing! I make FlashHarp with custom-U.S.-made and imported parts and pack and ship all items myself (in excelsior straw). I have 100% 5★ feedback (click tab at top).
Certainly. Go here: www.etsy.com/shop/backyardBrand/about Also, here in their entirety are two of my nine preloaded "Play-Along" Song Videos: ♫♫ "Happy Birthday To You" (played "crossharp" style) ♫♫: www.etsy.com/shop/USBHarmonica/about ♫♫ "Rock A Bye, Baby" (played "straight" harp style) ♫♫: www.etsy.com/shop/HarmonicaUSB/about
• A patented 8GB flash drive (U.S. Pat. Nos. D602,940 & D624,550) • 10-minute 5-step lesson & 9 play-along videos • A great-sounding, playable little harmonica (integrated with flash drive) • A 26" - 29" necklace (necklace items only) • Personalization (Personalized items only) Specs: - Full compatibility with USB 1.1 and 2.0 - Dual Channel Flash Memory Architecture - Hot plug and play; functions like another hard drive - Supports password protection - No driver needed (Windows 98SE driver available) Dimensions (in inches): With USB cap on, out of plastic box: 3³⁄₁₆ x 7/8 x ¹¹⁄₁₆
• Integrates a harmonica and a flash drive in one • Stores data such as pics, tunes, videos, just like ordinary flash drives • Makes great-sounding music • Makes a fun gift • Looks fabulous (stainless steel, brass and black) • Imparts the feeling of a musician carrying an ax to a gig • Deflects any shaming of your playing ("Hey, it's just a flash drive—chill!"). And even if you stop playing for a while (it happens) should the urge to start playing again strike—which is a lot more likely with a FlashHarp since the USB gives you a reason to keep carrying it—well, I say go for it!
• End up in the back of a drawer like plain, old harmonicas • Leave you with the vacuous vibe of ordinary flash drives • Start playing when you plug it in (that's a techy taboo) • Record audio (there's no mic built-into the FlashHarp) • Require you to bend or play single notes (but you can if you want to!) The important thing is setting free the musical spirit inside you. The harmonica has always been a great tool for that. If it was good enough for Abe Lincoln—http://bit.ly/109ch1g—it's good enough for us.
Yes! The memory and musical workings are imported and supplied to me brand-new by market leaders. Additional custom-designed and -tooled parts are made just for me here in the state of Illinois, U.S.A. I carefully combine everything by hand so it all coexists peacefully. My video lesson and play—along songs, which demystify the obstacles that often trip folks up, are my finishing touch on a digital device with a hobo soul.

More about sucking than blowing, crossharp (blues) really crosses up beginners because it makes the 2 "draw" (and 3, 6 and 9 "blows") the tonal center. www.etsy.com/shop/BackyardBrand?section_id=13493203 Straight harp keeps the tonal center the 1, 4, 7, 10 "blows." It's how Billy Joel is blowing on "Piano Man." Acquiring do-ra-mi familiarity in the straight key is a necessary first step for any harmonica player. www.etsy.com/shop/BackyardBrand?section_id=13498720 If you know how to play single notes, you know it's like riding a bike—and your skill will transfer to a FlashHarp. If you've yet to master single notes and want to, I offer this: www.etsy.com/listing/55473256
1) DO NOT SEPARATE THE BOX HALVES. Returns are not accepted for FlashHarps whose box label-seal is not intact—so-called "Intimate items" that may have made contact with someone's lips. (See Policies.) 2) STATE TO ME IN A CONVO THAT THE BOX LABEL-SEAL IS INTACT AND ITEM IS UNUSED. I'll provide a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. 3) WRITE RMA# CLEARLY ON OUTSIDE OF RETURN SHIPPING BOX. Refunds do not include the cost of shipping and are issued after received goods are confirmed unused. Cost to return to Buyer any goods I find unrefundable will be paid by the Buyer, in advance.
