Q: Why is it called a "harp"
I was part of a harmonica band, instructed by the man who was my choir director during the school year. Some hymns in major keys are easy and beautiful (within the limits of my talent).
Aeolian Harps make lovely sounds - harmonicas do not.
Depends on who is playing them. The trick is in the tongue. And the breath control, of course.
Recorders I agree with, But Hammond organ? Sheer poetry!
I'm with John, there, Nim. Like any instrument, played badly (which, sadly would be about 99% of harmonicas) they can sound downright awful. I've been blessed in that I've known a good player but not of the same standard as the bloke in the OP.
LOL! Leigh - those three instruments just set my teeth on edge - no matter who is using them !
