    Default Is there a Harmonica Cafe?

    We are extremely fortunate to have this great online community! I have a friend who is learning harmonica. He would really benefit from a Cafe-type site, similar to ours. Do any of you know whether one exists that I can suggest for him? I am specifically looking for one that is as supportive and friendly as our Mandoliin Cafe.

    Thanks!

    Bob

    I haven't visited any of them for a long time, and they are not so well-managed as this one, but these are places to start:

    Can anyone recommend the best harmonica for under $1,000?

    I have both F and A harmonicas, but have been unsuccessful in locating an E-flat mandolin.

    Harmonicaclub.com has a members' forum, seems much smaller than the CafeŽ -- not a member but maybe give it a look...

    I sure hope he doesn't have a cold or allergies. Could get messy!

    Thanks to each of you for your suggestions. I will forward them to my harmonica-playing friend. Thankfully, though, as far as I know he has not yet resorted to playing through his nose.

    Best wishes,

    Bob

    "Why did the harmonica player cross the road"... asked the banjo player as he suddenly accelerated.
    A quarter tone flat and a half a beat behind.

    I'll second that recommendation. Of course I'm somewhat prejudiced...
