Looking for my Etsy Shop? BackyardBrand.etsy.com Here to hear my story? Either way, welcome! My patented, playable memory-enabled FlashHarp® is happy to delight. FlashHarp is handmade of custom-Illinois-made and imported parts and comes Lesson-Loaded with nine FUN-TO-LEARN SONG VIDEOS.

I build FlashHarp in Riverside, Illinois, a National Historic Landmark Village designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, also designer of New York City's Central Park. A suburb of Chicago, Riverside* sits at the mouth of the three main out-routes that carried America's earliest harmonicas out to the Old West and down to the Deep South (the "Seat of the Blues").

The harmonica today speaks with an authority that can only emanate from souls who are free. Sound like you or someone you know? If so, blow your dough on the only brand flash drive you can blow 'Oh, Susannah' on…

It's liberating!

Song videos display and play on my Big, Honkin' Cartop FlashHarp—also built by my hand—right in my backyard (hence my Shop name). http://img1.etsystatic.com/008/0/5641494/il_570xN.363076575_eksy.jpg

I build, pack and ship all items myself hence my 100% 5★ feedback. www.etsy.com/your/shops/BackyardBrand/reviews

A parched throat one hot day led me to invent FlashHarp. www.etsy.com/shop/BackyardBrand/About

Nobody judges a FlashHarp owner's playing ability because, 'Hey, it's a flash drive!' Plus quitting playing the instrument for a while (it happens) never feels like failing since your FlashHarp stays useful; it's the only playable harmonica that's also a USB flash drive. Buy a FlashHarp today and feel the same happiness Lincoln enjoyed from playing purely for fun! http://www.etsy.com/listing/37438292

The style of harmonica-playing called 'cross harp' emerged out of the rubble of the American Civil War. Here's how I imagine this distinctly American, human-sounding style came about: http://etsy.me/1QZvjYL
