Reply To: Polyphony


Hi Andy,

A veteran accordion technician once told be that melodicas were really intended to play one note at a time.

That being said, you will see people playing polyphonic music. I like to play chords and intervals in accompaniment to music as well. Mostly I chop chords loud and quickly, or play them softly so I can sustain them for a long time.

The bottom line is, playing the lowest bass notes while trying to play high lead notes on a melodica is not the melodica’s forte.
