As you learn to play the home-tech accessory of choice of Bob Dylan and Sonny Terry, your FlashHarp® will escape the back-of-the-drawer fate of most harmonicas. That's because it's also a useful 8GB USB flash drive. Playable AND preloaded with my 10-minute "Five Basic Steps to Playing" folksy instruction video PLUS 9 play-along song videos. Up, down or sideways (⬆⬇➡) arrow appears in real time over the hole to blow, draw or bend. It's all made perfectly clear on my Big, Honkin', backyard-sized FlashHarp.

FlashHarp®...
• Is a great sounding little harmonica!
• Works like a charm to hold listeners spellbound
• Makes more sense than harmonicas that just make music
• Provides data storage and organization in a stylin' musical embodiment
• Fills the hole in any geek's soul

(Read on for more about each.)

SINGLE-NOTE PLAYING IS LIKE RIDING A BIKE ONCE YOU LEARN...
Anyone can pick up the FlashHarp and make beautiful music playing single notes, or "chording" (drawing or blowing on multiple holes at once).

To demo FlashHarp's sound quality go to my "About" page where I play it.

NECKLACE.
Ball-chain necklace is 27"-29" long. (¼-inch added length so box is different than normal "custom" one)

PERSONALIZED.
32 characters, maximum, printed on FlashHarp's midsection/"comb." Standard Process for all Personalized FlashHarps may add slightly to normal Process Time depending on engraver's workload. See** below.

THE MUSICAL COMBO.
The Musical Combo comes with a Lesson-Loaded FlashHarp and also includes a separate, full-sized "Plug 'n Play" harmonica. Both are 10-holed, key-of-C diatonic harmonicas, meaning, starting on the 4 blow hole and ending on the 7 blow hole, the "Do-Re-Mi" note layout (blow = ↑ and draw = ↓) is as follows:
Do↑
Re↓
Mi↑
Fa↓
So↑
La↓
Ti↓
Do↑
(In harmonica speak, they're "standard-Richter-tuned.")

*Crossharp is an intermediate/advanced-level playing style in which the playing focus shifts from blowing, to drawing and "bending." In the process, the tonal center of the instrument gets shifted to the 2 draw. Crossharp Song Videos show "bent" notes with a sideways arrow (➡).

**I normally apply Personalization myself to the FlashHarp but it also may be applied post-purchase by you, the Buyer, or your Recipient. (Custom-made text strip is a separate self-adhesive-backed piece of engraving material that's laser-cut using a precise FlashHarp-sized template.) Self-application is assumed when a Personalized item is purchased but no text is supplied or when Personalization is requested but not purchased. In these cases I request via Convo the necessary input and, if I get no response after 48 hours, I ship the piece without Personalization assuming you intend to self-apply Personalization later.
