More information about Richter tuning

If you start as a beginner, then you should be aware, that this is the mother of all tunings, the so called 'Richter-Tuning'. The ingenious finding of the 'Diatonic Harmonica' is the work of this man.
Richter is said to be descent from the Bohemian area east of Klingenthal from a town called 'Haida'.
It's not really proven, however it's fact, that the 'Richter Harmonica' is only called 'Haidaer' by Seydels employes since the beginning of the production more than hundred years ago.

All this shouldn't bother you when starting to play harmonica. The only important thing is, that you cannot fail completely when you start the adventure playing harmonica with this tuning.
Almost every great player has begun with it.
With the emphasis on blow notes you start to play folk music within five minutes, if you take the draw you start to dive into the magic of Blues and Rock'n Roll, the musical style this product line is named after.

A lovely harmonica in G. The feeling to it is smooth and I love the ease with which it plays. As a mere newcomer to playing I can appreciate the beautiful craftsmanship.

Seydel Session Harmonica good for me to use both solo with acoustic guitar and with bands I play in, It is versatile enough for Folk contemporary and traditional ( Irish,English, and European ) also blues and jazz. Gradually adding more of these to my collection

Only played it at home so far. Having problems bending holes 1 and 2 but that could be my technic.
The top and bottom covers are well shaped so that I can keep a good seal while playing.
