Harmonica

So i just decided that i wanted to learn harmonica, i've always loved the blues and thought it would be cool to learn. Plus it's an instrument not many people play and it's unique. Anyways i just ordered a Lee Oskar Major Diatonic, C.
This one
And im stoked to start learning. I dont think i've ever even stuck a harmonica in my mouth so it could be interesting at first. Anyone else on here play or like harmonicas??

I don't actually play it, but I like to mess around with the one that I have every time that I rediscover it. If you have any sense of a musical ear, it's really not that hard at all to start playing it. It's a hell of a lot of fun.

That's cool man, i used to play trumpet and drums but dont anymore. I miss playing music so this is a good fun way to get back into it. I can just carry it anywhere with me and play whenever i have some downtime.

Haromnica is really fun to play. I'm not very good, but there's a person at my church who is amazing and can play along with anything. I'm going to try to get him to teach me.

You don't really need much of a musical ear to play harmonicas. 99% of them are are in certain keys/scales, so as long as the other instruments are in that key/scale, whatever you play on the harmonica will which the instruments. There is a little bit of control over which exact pitches you want the play and in what rhythm, but it's not like you can have a hard time finding a proper note

That I did not know.

So a harmonica player has to have a harmonica for every key that he wants to play in?

You buy the most popular keys first. Get a C first then maybe a G, then F, then Bb, then D and you can increase your collection until you get one in every key.
