I have a curious instrument called Tombo Pocket Bass. It is much smaller than regular bass harmonica. It have no flats and sharps besides F#, but the coolest thing is they lay out in fifth. It allows to play power chords similiar to guitar riffs for heavy metall and hard rock. I found I can play one of my favorite songs "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana using this harmonica. For this video I do not use any sounds besides bass harmonica, diatonic harmonicas, tambourin, hand clapping and my chest. What diatonic tone do you like more: clean (verse) or distorted (chorus)?

Please share it if you like it!

Brilliant!

I wish YouTube had a button on their embedded videos for sharing on FB. I guess I'll have to click through to YouTube to do that!

We used to do a cover of Nivana's cover of Molly's Lips. We started with three part acapella harmony and then broke into a sort of punk with harmony main song. All I did on harmony was basically play the melody behind the vocals. It was a lot of fun. (We also played with doing their Bowie cover too, and a couple others, but never got them really tight.)

Very creative. The musical expression is excellent but the facial expressions make the video! I like the distorted harp. Cheers!
