Mouth organ music and magic:
Updated: Jun 13
Mouth organ is a compact musical instrument as shown above that will not only give music but it plays a great role in maintaining health.The reason is that it is the only musical instrument wherein the air is blown and drawn to produce the sound. Unlike other instruments it can be carried in pocket. It produces melodious heart touching sound. It is easy to learn. I will explain to you some basics to play this instrument for enjoyment as well as to keep you fit.
I will explain in simplest form about learning and playing the 24 hole mouth organ.Really it is very easy. The 24 holes are divided in to 3 parts each containing 8 holes as shown below.
These each part of 8 holes have 4 blowing tunes and 4 drawing tunes. Blowing means pushing air through mouth and drawing means sucking air through mouth. Overall there are 12 blowing tunes and 12 drawing tunes. Adjust button is for obtaining required half tunes wherever required.
The blowing tunes are represented in blue colour as B1,B2,B3,B4 etc., and drawing tunes are represented in red colour as D1,D2,D3,D4 etc., All these 8 notes are represented as tunes as fallows.
B1 - Sa
D1 - Re
B2 - Ga
D2 - Ma
B3 - Pa
D3 - Dha
D4 - Ni
B4 - Sa
The above note/tune system holds good for all the 3 parts. The tunes produced by above notes are given below.
This is the only basic. Enjoy playing.Further tunes will be updated.
As the air is blown and drawn continuously you will be doing yogic exercise pranayama.You will not be lonely as it is always with you as it can be carried in pocket because it is compact.Its melody heels minds.
