Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Anyone fancy a crack at the chromatic harmonica? My trusty old Hohner 64 Chromatica has seen better days, so I chanced my arm and bought a Swan 1664, (pictured above). Having been enormously disappointed by their diatonic blues harps, (I threw them away), this blew me away! It doesn't play as loud as the Hohner, (which is good news for friends and relatives of a beginner), but it's in tune, has a lovely, silvery tone comes with a decent case and costs way, way less. Its little brother, the 10 hole 1040, 1040 is also a steal and pocket sized.

I'm such a tease.

It's taken Abdul eighteen years to realise it.

Its roots go way back further than France and even Judaism: the originals, probably the first reed instruments and primitive harmonicas, are still around in the east. And the chomus is highly regarded in Russian folk music.



Watch and listen at your own risk. (Probably NSFW for most full-blooded Western males, as unintended eruptions are likely to occur in the trouser department, but you're not one of us.)

And, Bubbee, you can't claim ownership, they're jaws harps. ;)

Oh, and fuck. Mrs. Camel has started dancing to Russian folk music. Naked. Not a sight for sore eyes on a Sunday morning.

They were Jews' harps until political correctness kicked in. :P

Here's my authentic Russian chomus. Unfortunately, I can't play it very well as I suffer from ABTS.

You want to know what ABTS is, don't you, Abdul? Be nice and I may tell you. :)
