Has anyone else noticed the improvement in breathlessness after playing the harmonica for a hour or so? I smoke and l am a unfit 63 year old but my breathing and overall well-being improves after a blow out.
I'm sure asthma sufferers (young and old) would benefit from learning this instrument.

David Barrett an instructor in CA teaches harmonica at the local hospital in San Jose in the repertory dept. It is a proven way to exercise the lungs and bring oxygen to the brain.

I'm convinced that playing harp for all these decades has saved me from the worst of damage from smoking, which I did for 35 years. Blessed to be free of that for over 8 years now.
Music and travel destroy prejudice.

Thanks for your replies verifying that playing the Mississippi saxophone improves one's lung capacity, especially for us dirty smokers . My only problem now is stubbing the cigarette out in my eye whilst holding a fag and vamping the harmonica.
