    Here is a recording of a blues jam with an acoustic guitar player that begins to show the capability of the melodica as a serious blues instrument. Even though I have developed a number of techniques that make the melodica sound much closer to a harmonica than this recording does, executing them live in the heat of the moment will take more practice. So I would consider this performance to be pretty crude, but showing great possibilities for the keyboard harmonica.

    I’m not able to get connected through the links, Lowboy, for this or Melodica Articulations. Are they to SoundCloud? I tried on Chrome and Explorer.

    Alan, if you Copy/Paste the links starting with https and ending with .mp3 it should work.

    Yes you must copy and paste the link as Quetscher described.

    Here is a test of another technique to see if the link will be active:

    When I paste the link, the MW website automatically adds the “Audio src=” text. So that may be stopping the use of a direct hyperlink. Lowboy

    Thanks, Q. I was pasting too much.

    Now down to some serious listening!

    Sounds great Lowboy! Some really nice sounds. Didn’t hear any guitar though?

    How I made the link above

    1) I typed the following: Click here for Lowboy’s audio recording

    2) I highlighted the words ‘Lowboy’s audio recording’

    3) I pressed the link button above

    4) I typed the link address in the first box (starting with https, and ending with mp3)

    5) I left the second box empty, and pressed the ‘add link’ button

    Thanks for the instructions Daren.

    I will give it a try with the link with guitar. I double checked the file and it was the right one with guitar. Something must have gotten mixed up.

    Hi Lowboy

    Great recording!! Simply amazing!
    I love how you make the melodica sound like a blues harp, or even like a crazy psychedelic electric guitar! Great!
    And I forgot to mention that it also sounds a bit like a saxophone (at least to my hearing) in some of the examples you shared in the post – Studies in Melodica Articulation!
    Love it!

    Lowboy: That sounds fantastic. Did you do this through a sound distortion pedal or were you able to create the harmonica like sounds by somehow bending the reeds on the melodica? What kind of melodica is that? It was truly splendid.

    Lowboy: Never mind, I just read the other posts on this topic. To say the least, what you are doing is amazing. Incredible playing. Blows and bends my mind — uuuh, so to speak.

    Thanks for the kind words Lee. If you are interested in hearing some other sounds I have squeezed out of a keyboard harmonica, go to SoundCloud.com and search on Lowboy Bootay.
