Learn to Play Blues Harp Harmonica
What type of harmonica is ideal for playing with a guitar (acoustic)?
Filed under: Harmonica Reeds

I’m looking to purchase a harmonica as a gift, but I don’t know the first thing about them, other than that they rely of pre-tuned reeds. That said, what type of harmonica is ideal for playing with a guitar (presumably acoustic)?

    any kind is fine, I usually recommend Hohner Blues Harp, or Hohner Special 20. The question you need to have answered is what key do you want.
    Harmonicas are diatonic instruments and are based on a key. A piano or a guitar which are chromatic instruments and can play in any key, so if you are accompanying a certain song, you buy the harp for the key that the song is in. There are further complications if you want to play blues style or what I call Neil Young/Bob Dylan style.

    Just so you know, harmonicas have become really expensive recently, so expect to pay $30-50 for a good one.

    Hammond by far is the best.
