A new series on “How To Play…”

Within the next couple weeks I’ll be doing demonstrations of some popular songs and giving instruction on how to play them. I’ll be playing in free time with no musical accompaniment. This series is designed for those interested in learning about the benefits of coupling diatonic harmonicas. I’m confident these “how to play” videos will also provide some good entertainment for those that just want to  listen and watch.

    I heard that ‘Sounds of Silence’ is in Dm, and ‘Silent Night’ is in F, both of them don’t have accidentals.
    Would you please tell me your combination in either of them and what chords you got?

  • bill Says:

    You may be right about the Dm, but I use a Bb, C major combination. Everything you need in order to nail that song for a solo performance is on major formula combinations listed on my technique page. Personally I like the low middle combinations for most solo work. Thanks for your comment and for starting to learn the Coupling method. Soon you’ll be playing beyond those considered the world’s best.

    Sorry, the first “them” was what I said about the keys of the songs, and the latter “them” was about the keys of the harmonicas. My English is not very good 😀
    Now I only have a C and a C#, but I will try the C and Bb (or D) (I haven’t got enough money now 🙂 ). Do they really need to be one whole-tone apart?
    Does your Coupling method need better dip bends, because if I used your method, I would dip bend better and faster when swapping the harmonicas than the C-C# method to get accidentals?
    Does your method have both advantages: chromatic scale (needing more better dip bends than C-C# method) and chords?
    Is it true that major combinations are primarily for major-key songs, and minor ones are primarily for minor-key songs?
    Do major combinations have less chords when playing minor-key songs (and vice versa)?
    Sorry about my foolish questions, I’m not very good in musical theory 🙂
    I’ve read another method, called “Forkord Turnaround”. Does it have the same principle (2 keys 1 step apart)?
    Sorry and thank you again 😀

    Thanks for the comment, Kate Spade. “Here is the translation to the above comment: Bill Price was known to play “pairing” (coupling) his trumpet Blues is putting together the “full supply” (full-tone).

    So maybe this is a play called “global supply / supply recital legal principles”?”

    Thanks, Bill Price
