Really helpful! Saving zillions of neurons with this tool!

very nice

Great site, your explanations are thougtful and quite easy to understand.
What do the different colors about the notes indicate? Some are white, some tan and a few green.

Many thanks for the feedback.
Any notes highlighted with a colour are part of the selected scale: tan notes do not require any bending, whereas the yellow notes do require bending. Any notes that are not highlighted (i.e. white) are not part of the selected scale.
Hope this helps.

well I have to say I have searched the web a lot an seen lots of website on harmonica but this is the best website for harmonica
easy to read and suffice amount of information on every topic
so you can definitely be sure that if you die you managed to teach a lot of people about harmonica.
but just one thing: do you have any cool blues or country harmonica tabs either by your self or any famous harmonica players you could put on your site ???
because almost no website provides any tabs unless you pay them... :D

Thanks for the feedback :-)
Unfortunately I do not have any harmonica tabs that I can post freely on this site, as I only tend to use the self-same ones for which one has to pay; and I would not be able to post those online without seeking permission or violating copyright.
Of course, if I ever start writing tabs of my own, I will be sure to create a section for them here.

It's actually a great and helpful piece of information. I am glad that you just shared this useful information with us. Please stay us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.

Wow! This is really usefull! congratulations! I saw the other article too! Really good man! The only thing in this chart that I feel it's missing it's the overblows and overdraws notes! :D

Thank you very much! I'm always glad to hear when someone finds my stuff useful.
I'll be honest: the reason I don't include overblows and overdraws is because I don't know enough about them, and I don't like to talk about things I know little about (there's enough of that on the internet already!)
I'm planning to learn more about both topics in the future, and when I do I'll be sure to include them in the charts and the tutorial.

Thank you very much Riccardo for taking the time and effort to put this together. I am now a much more enlightened player.
