Hello Mark,
 
I have been enjoying website for many years. I am a quadriplegic from a ski injury. I've tried the harmonica and recently started building something else more for
people with disabilities www.jamboxx.com  and I was wondering if you would mind allowing us to put a link to your website on our website?
 
Best wishes.
 
Sincerely,
 
David

Hi Mark,

Great site! Keep up the good work.

I have been looking for harp tabs for some time now for Charley Pride's "The Snakes Crawl at Night" and without luck.

This is an old-time favourite of my Dad's that he would enjoy hearing on harmonica ... any chance of a posting for this song in the near future?

Thanks,
Audrey

Hi Mark: I really enjoy your web site. The graphics are neat and set yours apart from others. I have been playing for the dog,the house plants and
even the wife,(dog died,not from the music,wife goes to the other room.) I have been asked to play with the church band(four gutiars,drums,horns,ect.)
I don't have a clue as to amps or mikes or even if they are necessary. Do I need my own or what ?? thank you for any help or answer.

Thanks again. John Tschirpke Toms River NJ.

,
First off, I love your website. I’ve been using it for years. I’m not a good harp player, and never will be, but I like to blow on one from
time to time.  Anyway, I noticed you have a collection of 4 hole songs. Do you know any 3 hole songs? Here’s one:


Song:I love this little song. It's only three notes on a diatonic, at
least the way I hear it. To hear the melody and watch a very
entertaining video, here’s the link to his song:
· www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TC2xTCb_GU

Chorus:
I like guns, I like the way they look,
5 5 5 4 4 4 4d 4d 5

I like the shin-y steel, and the polished wood,
4 4 4 4 4 4d 4d 4d 5 4d 4

I don't care if they're big or small,
5 5 5 4 4 4d 4d 5

If they're for sale, Hell, I want 'em all.
4 4 4d 4d 4d 4d 5 4d 4

I like guns, I like guns, I like guns.
4 4 4d 4d 4d 5 4 4 4

1.
I really like my twenty two mag,
5 5 5 5 4 4d 4d 5

Forty five lever with the Winchester tag,
4 4 4 4d4d 4d 4d 5 4d 4 4

My old double barrel, had it most of my life,
4 5 5 5 5 5 4 4 4d 4d 4d 5

Three fifty sev-en was a present from my wife.
4 4 4 4d 4d 4d 4d 5 5 5 4d 4

2.
I don't understand all this fuss,
Why they're tryin to take our guns off of us,
I ain't gonna shoot anyone,
And no one shoots at cause I've got a gun.

3.
Now God made the animals, and God made the trees,
God made you, Hell He even made me,
He gave me this voice so I could be a singer,
Why do think I've got a trigger finger.

I'm sure Steve thinks he wrote the perfect gun song, but since he
didn't say anything about Cowboy Action guns, I felt obliged to write
another verse. I doubt he'll feel obliged to include it in his song.
:-)

4.
I really like my Cowboy guns,
My '47 Walker and my Navy '51,
My .44-40 shoots as fast as a snake,
My 10 gauge Greener starts a small earthquake.


I don’t know how you feel about guns, it is a polarized issue, but while I am a certified gun nut, I’m not an idiot with them.
Anyway, thanks for all the hard work you’ve put into your website.

First of all, thank you for the free tabs! I'm having lots of fun playing along with some of my favorite songs. I would like to suggest 'The Good, The Bad And The Ugly' by
Ennio Morricone. That song would sound pretty nice on harp I reckon.  Also, when right-clicking your site I got a weird pop-up, this is some security measure by you
and not an actual third party pop-up, is it?

Thanks!

Thanks for your well designed site. I have found myself picking up the harmonica again at 47 (started learning scales in the 80s but without anyone to play
rhythm it’s tough, and now with the internet and youtube, as well as people making sites like yourself, I know I can pick up where I left off and really excel! ) as
well as teaching myself guitar.. Mid life crisis thing? Heheh I dunno. But anyways, thanks for your site. I look forward to using it to find and teach myself new
songs, not only on the guitar but on the harp as well. Enjoy how your midis can be used as a backing track! Spent the entire day tracking down an A Marine
Band harmonica, I just learned a cool E blues progression as well as e minor/major pentatonic scale.. Found your site by looking into the best blues keyed
harmonicas to buy. Might save a little money and buy a 3 pack of marine bands in C G and A. ( when I was buying them in the 80s, they cost 7 dollars at the
most, guess they are made out of real gold now, heheh)

Thanks again for the site!

Hi,

I like your site!

I'm actually can't find chords for the following two songs:

Breakfast Club - Right on Track

and Don Johnson- Heartbeat.

Think you could let me know what they are!?

I'd appreciate it.

im actually a member of harp talk (Kenny/Gore Almighty)

Your website is amazing, and I know you have a site suggestions link but i thought Id drop this to you personally. while I am a "fresh out the box" player, I
have background in several other instruments, all have their little quirks as to easy/better ways to play them. i actually know a little something about
harmonica though, as far as having an ear for tunes and an eye for music theory.

Im not sure if most blues tunes are primarily played in D. but all the ones on your site are, and I could sit down and play them with my C harp, but It wouldnt
sound right further down the road when I get my D harp (hohner hoodoo series C D and G on the way). not to mention your accompaniments (very cool I might
add) are for that key.

I think my ultimate point for this message though, is maybe you could add a "songs by key" link.

Im sure this would be tedious, but it would certainly be helpful, not to mention I think youd be the only site on the net with a songs by key browser.

thank you so much for your time and your help!

Kenny-harptalk.

A note to let you know how much your site has brightened a life going dark.
 
My Dad, 87, is legally blind, almost deaf and has severe dementia. As his daughter, I'm constantly searching for things I can do to add a bit of light to
his pretty boring days.
 
Dad had played (albeit pretty badly) the harmonica around the campfire when as kids we went camping. I found your site and learned a few familiar
tunes he used to play. I tap my hand on the table to the beat and he plays to the beat.  Although we must drive the neighbors crazy with our terrible sound,
it's such a delight for him!
 
One of his favorite songs is "Let There be Peace on Earth"  but I can't find the harmonica version of it and I'm not skilled enough to figure it out.
Can you direct me somewhere to find this piece for the harmonica?
 
Thanks again for your website. It has added great pleasure to one man's (and daughters) life!

I have enjoyed your website very much.

I need your help or suggestion in finding back up tracks on the internet that could be used to support me in playing the melody part solo.
I am hoping to find backup music so that I can play the melody solo without another instrument playing on top of another instrument. Is
there a way to take the melody line out of the MIDI files . I'm not complaining so please don't take this as a complaint. It's great to know
the key that the song is played in and the rate at which it is being played. It gives me the opportunity to decide which position that
I my choose to play the song in. I play both Chromatic and Diatonic harmonica. I am looking for a back up tracks so that I can play gig's solo. I
also appreciate the Tab markings and the option of various keys and tempo's offered for each song. You have done a wonderful job. It is a very
good play along program to learn new songs. Again I am not complaining ,but just asking for your help in finding what I am looking for. There
are plenty of back up tracks for blues but not for known tunes like you have in your website. Have you ever tried karaoke back up tracks ? I am
at a loss as to where to find Thanks again for taking your time to share with others what you have spent many hours putting this program together
and it has been helpful to learn the melody on songs I have never heard and I know that is what it was created for.

Sincerely Jeff Foster

Thank you so much for takeing the time and trouble to create your website,It rocks!! I have a question; how do you keep a harp
clean and sanatary? Is it necessary to disassemble and brush,I am afraid of damaging the reeds but more concerned about
good health. Thanks in advance for your reply,John

December 16, 2009

Hello, I wanted to thank you for creating such a great site. I'd been asking for the tab or sheet music to "There Is Love", and within a
few days it showed up on your site. So thanks again.

WaltP

I tried the songcomments e-mail address but it didn't work.


November 1, 2009

I love your website. In only one day of playing along with your midi’s, I have noticed a big improvement in my playing. I belong to an all
harmonica group in Fairbanks, Alaska called “Hot Denali Harps”.

One song I see missing from your playlist is the ever popular, “Shenandoah”. Any chance of getting that soon?

Keep up the good work (play).

Mark,
Wonderful site you have there! Harpin' an a Whinin' is just what I've been looking for! Thank you so much for all of the time and effort that you've put into
this. (I have a web site and I know it ain't easy)  By the way, your link to the "Banana Boat Song (AKA Day O)" seems a bit odd. The link itself looks OK,
but the structure appears kind out of whack to me. Usually when I've seen "also known as" used it's in lower case (as in WinTux aka Mondo).
Thanks, again for the wonderful site. I've added a link to it on my web site.
Keep harpin', brother.

Mark,
I have just visited your Site, again ....It is great!
I also looked at your pictures and noticed that you, like me, served in Vietnam from 1969 to 1970. You look quite familiar; who knows, perhaps are
paths crossed....I served with the 101st Division, Batallion 327th. Greetings from Holland,

Hi Mark,

I started playing the harp on April 1st of this year. I enjoyed it immediately. I went online and did a google search and your website came up. I can only say it was the best thing that could have happened. I
spend hours each day playing along with the songs. I created a playlist of over 50 songs with windows media player. I cannot tell you how much joy you have brought to our home.

I've told quite a few people about your site and they are enjoying it also. I'm trying to put a small group so we can learn to play together. I wanted to burn a cd with some of your songs so I could take
it to get togethers, but I found out after trying to burn the cd that the burn rights are not available with the songs on your website.

My question to you is, is it possible for you to make the songs burnable or do you have cd's of your songs that I can buy? It would mean so much to us if you can make this happen.

Thanks again for your website and obvious dedication to us harp players.

John

Note: the music on my web pages are midi's that can only be played on computers.  They can, however, be converted to MP3's and burned to
CD's for playing on compatible CD players including car radios.  After conversion, they can also be stored on MP3 players including the iPod and iPhone.

I just found your website and want to thank you for sharing so much.  I just picked up a harmonica a couple
of days ago and am quickly getting the feel of it thanks to your site.  Additionally navigating around your
site is lots of fun.

February 22, 2009

Mark, thank you for all the time and work you put into your website.  I am probably way too old
to start learning the harmonica, but I'm loving pulling up your site and stumbling along with tabs
and midi's.  It is a real source of enjoyment for me.  Since I have no one to help me or play along 
with it, is a great help.

First off, I'd just like to say that I love your site. Its really helped me learn alot, and I thank you for that.
Secondly, do you think that you could tab "Mr. Tamourine Man" by Bob Dylan? I would really appreciate
it if you could.

Well, I thank you for your time, and once again, I thank you for your site.
     sincerely yours,

Hey. I'm basically a noob when it comes to the harp.  I pull it out every couple years, and never really get
anywhere. Since I found your site, i have made more progress in a couple months than I have in about
5 years, and I actually can play a couple songs now ;)

 Anyways, just wanted to say thanks, and Im glad for the site!

Hello,

Thanks for the great info and enjoyment on your website. While 'clicking around' I played Amazing Grace in cross harp from your site.
I was 'amazed' myself at how much more I and my family enjoyed the sound. We are overseas missionaries and I learned to play 'by
the number' to have music available in our small group settings. Though not a great player, by any means- I enjoy it and others at
least tolerate it.

 I would like to ask if you know where I can get more music already tabbed like your version of Amazing Grace. It's not only in cross
harp but has some extra notes which add a lot. I'm interested in hymns and Christian praise choruses and also some country, folk
and others.

 Thank you,

 Earnie Legg

I used to listen to the midi on your "oldies" page. I'd love to have it
again...what are the chances? Thanks, your site is awesome. Thanks so

I am impressed by your site.
It is a great resource
 
I would like to share another tabbed version of Maggie
 
 
It's what I tabbed and put on our site  www.theharmonicaclub.com
 
some people will not like playing so high on the harp,,,,,,, but that's the place I found,
where you don't need to bend.

i stumbled on it looking for a harp tab and really got lost looking 
around and enjoying myself. thanks!

btw, do you know or know where i can find the tab to Dylan's "Baby Let 
Me Follow You Down?"
i've looked everywhere and my ear is not yet well trained. (but i did 
see the section on how to train it.)

thanks much.

June 5, 2008


hi

 i enjoyed your site very much - keep on going!

 but i have a couple of sugetions:

 1) on each song write exactly to which harmonica it is for. (i'm using a 10 hole diatonic C and on part of the songs it didnt

go well...)

 2) encourage people to send you tabs that they wrote and you will post them after cheking them - that way it would go faster building the song amount

 3) explain exactly what each sign means (Rrrr, ----> etc.)

 4) a lot of people (like me) arent experts and dont know exactly what MIDI's and the letters after it - maybe u could explain?

 5) why dont you just do regular tabs ("sheet music") so you dont need to say what key it is on?

 thank you very much! ang good luck!

 p.s. sorry if i bothered you  in any way - just wanted to help!

 p.p.s on a chromatic can i play on all keys and how?

I use your site regularly to seek the tabs for the quantities of songs that you have and, even though I'm no

Hey, my name is Steven.
 
I love the website, go to it everyday!  I noticed that you have Billy Joel Piano Man in chromatic,
could you also put in diatonic G? I have a C harp and can't find the tab anywhere.

 

November 24, 2007

Dear Mr Mark Purintun,

First of all greetings from India and congratulations on a good website. Thanks for all the useful information.
I have a humble suggestion: If you include information about where to include bends in the excellent tabs that
you have provided, it will be very helpful and will go a long way. This is because I recently heard that
beginners (like me) could damage the harmonica reeds by trying to bend the wrong notes(notes that will
not bend normally). So this is my request.

Thanks a lot!
Naveen

 


October 31, 2007

Others have probably told you this, but the link for “I only want to be with you” is pointing to “Here comes the Bride”. 

Love your site.  It’s the best harmonica tab site that I’ve seen.  The quality is consistently excellent!

October 26, 2007

Dear Mr. Purintun,
 
     I wrote you once concerning the left click on the mouse and I'm sure I thanked you for your tabs as I have
a tin ear, even after playing and studying music for 30 years!  If I didn't, I'm doing it now, as well as making a
request. Right now I'm into making and playing the six hole bamboo flute and your tabs work well. (I used to
play guitar and harmonica).
 
      My request is for songs by the Outlaws. Hughie Thomasson recently passed away in my hometown,
Brooksville, Fl. (The same town Paris Hilton got booted by a horse!)
 
      Without your tabs, (and harptabs.com) I'd be stuck with the guitar websites and that is so limiting. People
like to hear the melodies!
 
Thank you so much and God Bless,
 
Mark Maraquin

Hi!

I have a casual interest in harmonica and am slowly learning to play. I just wanted to say that your site has
taught me much and brought a lot of joy into my life.  Keep up the good work!

Thanks,

Hi there.  You've got a neat site.  But how come you don't let people download stuff.  I'm particularly interested in the two midi
versions of Popeye The sailor Man that aren't the same as the ubiquitous version everybody else's site has.  Does one need
special permission or some kind of electronic bracha from you in order to download to my own computer?  Please advise,
as you've got some nice stuff.

Thank you for building the wonderful harp site.
I was looking for such for a long time.
I am very new to harp (one month). I bought a Lee Oscar C diatonic one.
Can you please explain the marking you use in the tabs pages?
why are there two notes parallely? why are the midi files marked C100, Eb9011 and so on?
how can I tell the notes fits my harp?
 
Thanks allot!
Happy Rosh Hashana

Hey, great site!  Can you tab out Wild Weekend by The (Rockin') Rebels?  The palm-muted intro and rhythm
parts should be pretty easy, but I'd also really like to see how you would do the sax part as a guitar solo. I'll bet
it would make for a great piece for two guitars!
 
I think The Ventures covered this song, but I can't seem to find a copy of their version - any ideas?
 
 
Thanks!

Thanks for the site!

I've had a harp sitting in front of me for a year, but found it unapproachable due to my lack of music theory
knowledge and available tabs. I'm happy to say though that with your site I was able to get a couple of decent
sounding songs out within about 5-10mins!!  Great stuff, keep it up!

BTW if I may be so bold here are some suggestions I'd like to make to improve the visitors experience:

 
  • The MIDI files sound hideous and forced me to turn off my speakers :)     It's great for learning a song,
    but maybe not the best to come on in the background - at least not without a "shut up" button. Most
    people new website design think gadgets like this are great, but they just annoy people...... website
    design rule #1: less is more!
     
  • Some of the pages are not rendering correctly in FireFox and I had to switch back to IE
  • Have you thought of using DreamWeaver or some such WYSIWYG editor? It'll make your
    pages much more browser compatible, XHTML compiant and separate your style from your
    data (mixing presentation and styles is a bad idea)

Anyway.... I can stick my big nose in where it's not wanted more if you need advice

Cheers,


Paul

Hi Mark,

I'm glad I could help :)  I don't know what all you do with your files, but you might want to consider giving Musician 2.1
a try, as we changed the interface (how the tools are presented) considerably between 1.0 and 2.1.  It's a much more
obvious layout now, rather than the changing palette scheme we had previously.

Also, I visited your harmonica website, and I'll have to share that with my husband (a harp wannabe) and a drummer
friend of mine who also loves to play harmonica.   You have a well-rounded resource with the .mid files and additionally
the tabs.  What a labor of love!

I hope you thoroughly enjoy your music, and if I can be of any other help, please let me know.

Best Regards,
Sherry

i love your site.... i have been fooling around with a harp for a while... but with your site it
should be easier... a lot easier...

i help out at a boy scout camp and they love when i play around the fire.

a few little requests... Mario brothers theme. oh and an index page that shows the whole list
of songs instead of clicking on a letter.

oh yeah just an fyi the "p" page does not have the side menu.

but overall i love the site...
thank you for the time your put into it.

Mark,
 
What a wonderful site.  I found you by accident and have shared it with the
Club members.
 
I am not an accomplished musician so do not know all the signs along the road. 
What do the characters of the alphabet mean?  RR  r-6  r  These must be important
to the sound, timing etc.,  but I do not recognize them.
 
Will you be going to the SPAH Harmonica convention in Milwaukee in August?
 
Great site lots of work to make it happen,  
 
Thanks,

Hello Sir,
             Please may I ask for more Blues song tabs with midis , for your website, as there are just 3 song tabs at the moment,
I need to learn to play some good Blues tunes, and play them along to a midi. Your website is Fantasic, I have already learned
to play about 30 tunes from your site, and I can now play each one very well, but, now I need to learn some good Blues tunes
with midis.
 
Please will you let me know if or not you can help me..
 
Thank you.
 
 
                              Richard.

Hi Mark,
Great web site and thank you for sharing all the tab songs.  I am 66
years old and just started playing the harmonica last year. Your site
really is helpful.

Hello Mr. Purintun,
My name is Chris Nixon and I absolutly love your harmonica website.  I was recently in a car accident
and now I am unable to play guitar so I have used your website to try and teachmyself harmonica.  I really
appreciate what your doing for everyone.  That being said, after searching through your website I have foun
a few errors.  They are nothing major just thought i would inform you of them. 

The one error i would love for you to look at is the midi 4 file under the song of "come monday" isn't come
monday... it is "son of a sailor" both being jimmy buffet songs.  Unfortunatly there isn't a tab for "son
of a sailor" on your website and i was curious if maybe you had a tab for it because there is a midi
file for it.

I have also found that Midi 3 under "ring of fire" is actually "rhymstone cowboy"

I have also found that under the section of Harmonicat songs... Midi 1(c100) is on two songs... "Fascination"
as well as "Moonglow".  I don't know what song it really is but it appears twice under different names.

Thank you so much for your website... It has been a huge help. I sure do look forward to learning "son of
a sailor" by Jimmy Buffet if you have the tab layin around somewhere.

Thanks again,
fellow friend
Chris Nixon

It is a shame you don't allow for downloading of the midis.  You could easily have the most
popular site on the web.
 
Also your wry sense of humor is cute but offensive. 
 Time for you to grow up.

Mark cant thank you enough for the site. I have been teaching myself the harmonica for a few months and
getting pretty good. But it would not have been possible without the tabs, so thanks. I was able to locate the
Canadian national anthem at ww.Harptabs.com, I dont know if they are linked on your site. I dont know if
you can help but Im having a time trying to find " Carolina on my mind" by James Taylor have you seen it?

March 13, 2007

your lessons page is excellent...the only place I could find on the web with all the different harps charted out with all
the bends...the only problem is that much of your text and images on the lesson section are overlapping making it
immpossible to read your lessons....just thought I'd let you know in case you weren't aware..

Hi
I am a beginner, but have loved harp music since knee high. I have been browsing the web, when I get a chance (work and home), to look for some harp sites, and found some good sites until I came across  Harpin' an' a Whinin'  absolutely fabulous, everything a beginner, novice or advance player needs, keep up the good work.
 
Will forward this site to my harping buddies.

Hi,

My name is John Jeansonne, and I play the fiddle for the country/pop band, Rascal Flatts.  I'm a 36 year old Cajun, and have been fiddling for 28 years.  Now this isn't an email to "brag" about myself.  I just feel that it is important to tell you about the person who has chosen to write to you - me.  So..... I've been fiddling for Rascal Flatts for over five years.  Prior to that I played fiddle for country singer, Lee Ann Womack.

I also play other instruments besides the fiddle - Cajun accordion, harmonica, mandolin, and guitar.  When I was 13 years old (1983) I won the Louisiana harmonica championship.  In 1985-88 and 1995, I won the Louisiana fiddling championship.  Throughout my childhood and teen years I had a Cajun band.  We would play at festivals and stuff all around Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi.

Anyway.... now that I am finished talking about myself (always feel embarrassed doing that), I want to simply tell you one thing... Thank you.  Although the fiddle is my primary instrument, the harmonica is a close second.  I just have a passion for playing the harmonica which I cannot describe.  It is such a cool, little, versatile instrument!  I just wanted to take a little time to thank you for your efforts on your wonderful harmonica website.  I visit many of them quite regularly, but yours is my favorite of them all!

I don't want anything.  It is just that I feel that many take such informative websites for granted.  However, I do not take them for granted.  So..... thanks for your time and effort in creating such a great harmonica website.

Yours truly,
John Jeansonne

Hi Mark, Went to your site this morning ,which I got from the SPAH
magazine that came in the mail yesterday. I am basically a blues harp
player who doesn't leave second position. Wow, I had so much fun with
your site, I think I have been on it close to 2 hours now. Gave me a
chance to fool around with my chromatic and really have fun with some of
the umpteen songs you have. A million thanks.

I just wanted to say thanks alot for the site. You realy did a great job on
all the tabs. There so organized, i learn like 10 times more when i play off
your site then other harp tab sites.

Anyways man I notcied that you havn't updated your site. Let me ask you tho,
please dont stop what your doing.  I love your site and it really helps me
learn. Its just great.

The only other thing i have to say is really just a request. And don't bother
if you cant or dont want to but id love to see a few more songs in the game
Department. Zelda: Ocarina of time has very nice game music to play along to.
There's a whole bunch of original songs in it that just sound great.


Either way i care less about those songs then i do about your site. Please
keep updating.


Thank you

Dear Mark,
      I am 13 years old and am learning how to play the harmonica, and if I
say so, I'm doing quite well. All of my friends are saying how well I'm
doing. It's also amazing how music can touch peoples lives, because I
started playing the harmonica and got my friend Dylan to bring his out, and
my friend Jacob brought his out and is getting very good at it. I was
thinking of getting a harmonica band started, and I'm saving up for a bass
harmonica.
    I'm told I pick instruments up very fast, and I picked up the harmonica
and learned it in 5 minutes. Some of my friends think it's annoying though.
I thought if you needed any help tabulating songs, I could help you wth it.
I also wanted to know what website publisher you use.

                             -Harpist forever,
                              Joshua Smith

P.S. you still haven't tabulated La Bamba. I could help you with that if you
want.

Hi Mister Purintun
 
I am of Colombia, and my English is not very good.
I am a novice in the harmonica and have visited its page to look for its tablaturas.
I have a question: Since you update it frequently, how as they are the new songs?
Excuse the annoyance, but I want to be trying every day.
Thank you very much by its attention and thanks for its page

While surfing the net today, I came across your web page titled Harpin' an' Whinin'   I'm a relative newbie
at playing the harp, and have to confess that my Chromatic Harmonica has been lying in a cupboard drawer
gathering dust for quite a while now,  mainly due to the face I allowed myself to become discouraged in trying
to master the instrument.  But that all changed today after stumbling across your web page, which encouraged
me greatly in renewing my interest in playing.  I love the way you have set everything up, and I get really excited
when I find myself being slowly able to play along with some of the songs background accompaniments.
I intend to attempt  to be able to play at least 3 songs per week from your list.
 
Keep up the good work, and I wish you every success with your venture, I will be recommending to my friends
who are also harp newbies to tune in to your web.
 
Could you possibly do a tab sheet also on that melody that plays when one first joins your web page.  It's
such a lovely tune. so melodic, and haunting. I did try to play it but I can't find the right key on my harp to
match yours, my Chrom is in the key of C .
 
Thanks for taking the time to read this,
 
Regards,

I came across your web site today while doing a Google search for harmonica clubs.  Wow!  What a lot of effort you’ve put into
it for the benefit of all us harp players.  I’m looking forward to trying out your tabs.  So much there to learn!

I’m currently trying to learn to play a chromatic harmonica.  In fact, one if the songs I’m struggling with now is “Girl from Ipanema,”
one of the songs on your One Hit Wonders list.  I’m also trying to learn jazz-like songs such as Toots Thielemans’ “Bluesette” but
haven’t been able to come across any tabs for this type of music anywhere.  Do you have any suggestions where I might dig up
learning aids for this type of harmonica technique, or is this something you’ll be adding to your site in the future?

 I started playing harmonica when I was 12, a looooong time ago.  I stopped playing in the late ‘80s when I picked up 5 string banjo. 
Lately I’ve found myself coming back to the harmonica and am trying to pick up where I left off.  I played lots of blues harp through
my teenage years and into my 30s, but never tried a chromatic.  Now I find myself drawn to the type of music that lends itself best
to the chrom, so if you have any resource suggestions for me I’d sure appreciate it.

 Thanks again for putting together such a great web site! 

Kind regards,

 Paul Stockford

Dear Mark,

I heard a great button accordion (ie big brother of the harmonica) track I
wan't to learn being "Help me make it through the night".  I came straight
to your site of course. Thanks for the great tabbing. I sincerely
congratulate you on working out "Orange Blossom Special" for us too. Thanks
for being there, and, your wisdom is certainly appreciated. And Mark, may
God continue to bless you if He should so will.  Best regards and kind
wishes.

Warm greetings Mark,
A great many people who take up the harmonica know little about
reading music.
They don't get much help from music shops who are only interested in
the more expensive instruments on the whole.
You may get a beginners book with a few lines of a very simple tune
or two and then you are left to sink or swim.
I can now read music and play by ear. Both these skills take time
and practise. In the meantime tabs are what got me going -then kept
me going!!
It took me 6 months to start playing by ear and 12 months to read
music reasonably well.
It is still difficult to read music and play as smoothly as I would
like but I am getting there.
Without TAB sites I may have given up.
When new people ask for help I ALWAYS refer them to your site and
Jack's and Harptabs.
Your site is my favourite because you have TABS + WORDS + MIDI's
to play along with.
I know your site is a labour of love and the mind boggles at the
hours you must have put in. THANK YOU.
When people start playing they often have a tune in mind that they
would love to play well. This is usually the first tab they ask for.
Mine was 'Summertime'.
If I had had to wait to read music to play it I would have given
up!!
Keep up the good work my friend.

Henry.

Mr. Purintun,

Just a brief note to tell you how much I like, and get out of 'Harpin' an' a
Whinin''

I've learned lot from your site, always check there first when looking for a
song, and very much enjoy your sense of humor.

I guess ( From 'Weather in Carol Stream Ill') were almost neighbors,  I live
in Hyde Park, Chicago, and work at the University of Chicago.

I think you've done a wonderful service by putting up and maintaining your
site - Thanks.

                            Thanks  Clark Moreland

 

August 11, 2006

What a monstrously good site you're building!~ I'm some impressed!
Thanks for making it available and so easy to navigate. Great tunes...
.
Re: One Hit Wonders: here's two
.
"The Martian Hop"... by the Galaxies; also by the Ron-dells... circa
1960... [ silly song but I have a grandkid that loves it ]
.
"Susie Darlin'"...by Robin Luke... circa 1959.. [ no horns if you can
help it tho ]
.
...and, he's hardly a one-hitter, but I would love to hear a midi
version of Bobby Darin's [ done to a cha-lypso beat ] "I'll Be There"
...it's the B side of his Atlantic Records 45 of "Beyond the Sea"... It
was covered in a similar style by Jerry and the Pacemakers. All the
subsequent versions like the Jackson 5's and Whitney's, etc. are slower
and "draggy" to my way of thinking. My opinion only... but Bobby Darin
was one of the all-time great song-stylists.
.
Thanks again and keep it going!

Dear Mr. Purintun,
 I wanted  to thank you for  site, it's incredible. I was wondering if there was a way that I could donate ten
or twenty dollars to it? I was also wondering if it's possible for you to help me find either the midis for or
tab these songs, Old Dan Tucker,  Runaround Sue, or Betty Lou got a new pair of shoes.

Thanks again and god bless..

Dear Mark,

In the first place i would like to say that I really like your harp-tab website!
I'm trying to learn to play the bluesharp for a few weeks, and i;m making a slow but steady progress.

On your "one hit wonders" site you say that people can mail requests for
songs to tab.

Well, I would like to request 3 songs:

1. My Way  -Frank Sinatra (I'm not sure he wrote the original, but he sang a wonderfull version of it)
2. Venus -Shocking Blue
3. Breakfast at Tiffany's -Deep Blue Something

Greetings from The Netherlands,

Hey,

 

Just started playing again after about 8 years.  Got diverted to other things like, you know, work, kids, life, etc. 
I ran across your site at just the right time!  You have helped me tremendously.  I am playing better than ever, now
and have renewed desire to learn more.  Thanks for making it easier!

I saw your case on your site.  I can’t find this case anywhere!  All the ones I have seen are too small – they don’t
have enough slots for the harps.  At least not accessible slots, which is really important on stage.  Can you tell me
here to get a case like yours?

 Thanks again.

Dear Mr. Mark Purintun

I was browsing and just stumbled across your web site.
 It is a wonderful site and exactly what I have been
looking for.  I have been attempting to learn some
harmonica songs for the past couple of months.

I am currently in the Middle East supporting a U. S.
Army unit.  Your web site offers a breath of fresh
air.  I am perhaps older than most of your web site
visitors.

I have been searching for harmonica tabs for two
songs:

(1) I'll Sail My Ship Alone - Moon Mullican
(2) Cold Hard Facts of Life - Porter Wagoner

Thank you so very much for providing the web site.  I
can't imagine all of the time and effort you must put
into it - and for no remuneration.

One comment about the site comments:  I cannot for the
life of me figure out why Lara's Theme (Somewhere My
Love) From Dr. Zhivago did not make the cut-off for
the 100 best movies songs.

Thanks again.

Dear Mr. Mark Purintun,
Thank you for your nice website.
I am a 59years-old Japanese boy.
I was searching for the words of  "Silver threds and golden needles".
Then I can access to your website. I am very surprised and much
excited to come here. Please fill the "under construction" place
calmly. I wish you a happy days.

Thank you & Best regards,

Mark,

I am enjoying the files on your website.  Thanks for all the hard work!

I would like to point out to you that Ashokan Farewell, though USED as the theme in Ken Burns’ Civil War PBS series,
is in fact a modern tune composed & performed by NY State fiddler Jay Unger.

Keep up the good work.

I can't imagine any spending that much time building and maintaining
a site to help a bunch of doofuses like me who don't read music! As
you may have heard me casually mention, I just can't abide by tabs.
They just mess me up. So when I feel a song coming on, if I can't
get the words and melody straight in my head, I can't even begin to
make it happen on the harp. So what I do is, I sneak into Mark's
sight like a thief in the night, and pull up the song I want then I
print the words out (all tabbed , Mark even has the timing down now!)
but what I really want is to hear him play it. I listen to him play
the thing. Note that I said LISTEN, I really, really, listen to him
I steal the hell out of his timing, cadence, everyting! The only
thing I don't use is the tabs 'cause lots of times Marks has you
playing along with him and I think this is important for hackers
like me out there to understand. You guys and guyettes need to know
that some of his stuff seems to be designed to be played along WITH
what you are going to hear on your favorite cd! (oh, Mark don't eat
me alive if I'm wrong on this). As an example, last night for me it
was "Help me make it throught the night". I couln't remember how
everything fit, so I dipped into Mark's bag of goodies. But if you
play the tabs he has for that song all alone when you are back in
your easy chair, to my ear you are playing harmony to the melody
that Mark played on the computer. And that is why tabs will mess you
up if you don't watch out. Now if I'm wrong Mark I apoligize ahead
of time, I'm just learning and if I'm having trouble I know there
must be others who are too. This in no way reflects upon my
admiration for your skill and accomplishments. Steve     
 

March 16, 2006

Hi Mark,
 
John Rumler here, your pal in Oregon who requested tabs for Heart of Gold! I wanted to especially thank you for putting
the lead-in and the solos in 75Xtime and isolating it so i could listen to it over and over. That must have been a hard song to
tab----because of the strange combination of chords and notes....Thanks again for the excellent job. Honestly, I was depressed
first few times i tried to play it. I thought it was beyond me. I finally got it down--because of your advice and tips and because of
the extra work you did w/the sound files on the lead and the two solos!!! How you do that i'll never know.
 
But what a great feeling it is learning a great song like that!!
With so many things going to hell in this crazy world your site is a special and fun and positive place for me and lots of
others. You have been tabbing so many new songs. Thanks for all you do. Please keep going!
 
It's by far the best harp site. You even blow the pay sites away.
 
You've got a good buddy in Portland, Oregon---and lots of places around the world.
 
God bless ya Mark.
 
Gonna tackle In the Ghetto now. Always loved that song!

Hi Mark,
  Hey, that really helps putting in the sheet music for runaround, gives the phrasing, which is a ~huge~ part of Poppers
sound.   BTW, that photo of Popper is his mug shot that the TX police dept took when he was busted for pot. You probably
knew that ..... :-)  

Thanks, as always, for your outstanding tabs. You do more on gratis than a lot of people do for dough.

Mark,  "HI"
 
It's been awhile since emailing you.
 
I like the "upgrade"  on  your  Site  as I am sure others do, too.
 
Thanks for all you do to help so many folks enjoy MUSIC.  
 
I have a hard time with some of the new entertainment when it comes to songs,
 
and this Site is very comforting.   
 
You have been truly blessed with your talent.
 
Do take care and best wishes to you and your family.

Hi Mark,
Well in fact, I've got problems reading sheet music : that's why I'm so grateful
when musicians tab songs for me..!

I enjoy visiting your site (and there's something new everyday!), and learning
new songs from it - I especially like the songs you have chosen.
I only play about 50 songs so I've still got a lot of work to do. :)
Thank you again for putting all of them online, have a nice week-end,
Eve

Hi Mark,
Great work on your website! we have the tabs, the midis and the fun thanks to
you...

Here's a little tab for you to add if you like it.It's a Serge Gainsbourg's song
'Dieu est un fumeur de Havanes'.
Thanks for your good work. Take care,

DIEU EST UN FUMEUR DE HAVANES (Serge Gainsbourg)

Dear Mark,
I just found your site last week and feel so happy because all of the tons of useful information and song tabs.
 
I am pretty new with the Harp.  I got it last Chrismas for my 12 years old boy, but since then it has been ALL MINE    -sorry son...!
 
Yesterday I was just thinking about sending a request for you to take the time and Tab "Take the Long Way Home"
from Supertramp, but God, the first thing I saw today in your site was this Tab I was dreaming on.  I can´t believe it´s true!
 
Well, Mark, I don´t want to waste your time, you better keep on Tabbing.  I really apreciatte your time and effort to
make us happier  (should´ve asked my wife about this...).

Sir
I think your web page is great. I was wondering if you could tab or new where to
get Today I started loving you again-Merle Haggard. Might be copy protected.
I received Charlie McCoy version on CD. Really sounds good. I tried to tab to
no avail. Any help greatly appreciated.
Again Harpin ana Whinin GREAT!
Thanks in advance.

Hi! I have recently taken up the harmonica and have grown to really enjoy
your website.  I was hoping you could post the tabs for Bob Dylan's Pledging
My Time, as it is one of my favorite songs and I can't seem to be able to
find it anywhere!

Thanks so much!

January 27, 2006

Mark,
 
Thak you! Thank you! Thank you! You have no idea how long I have been searching for a source of harp tabs.
Your website is awesome! Very complete with probably the biggest variety of songs available. My hat's off to
you for taking the time to put this together. Your contribution to the harp player's community is HUGE. You have
given harp players years of enjoyment. Please, NEVER stop what you're doing!
 
If this contributes to your site in any way, I'm attaching a chart for the C harp note layout I put together. Keep
up the great work!                  Chart
 
Thank you again,

Mark,
 
First of all, thanks for putting this site together - it has been really useful while I have been
learning to play the harp.
 
Just wondered if you might be able to find a midi and / or the tab for 'Minnie the Moocher'. Tried
to write one up myself and have not had the best of luck. Also, do you have the harp lead-in chords 
and instrumentals for the 'Piano Man'? Although I know the tab for the song is here, I have had real
trouble trying to get the chords on the intro right from listening to the song.
 
Many thanks,
 
Steve Nichols

Dear Mark, I would like to wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
And mainly I have to thank you for your affort to bring the prettiness of
music also "us  - the musical ignorants".  The best wishes from Heart of
Europe  (a pair steps from the birth-place of Vejvodas Beer Polka), that you
make known for next generation .   ...

Love, love, love your site. Could you add Arkansas Traveler to your list? I'm also interested in other fiddle tunes
now that you've gotten me started on the Irish Washerwoman.
Thanks!!!

Hi Everyone,

I would like to second what Amrianne has said.  I am relatively new to the harmonica and
have found HarpinandWhinin a fantastic site.  I am really grateful for the time and effort
Mark has put in to it as it has proved a huge inspiration to learn more things.  Thank you.

DEAR MARK,  T\

THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS SITE AVAILABLE TO US. I ENJOY  JAMMING
WITH YOUR MIDIS ON MY HARMONICAS. I APPRECIATE THAT YOU HAVE MANY SONGS 
AVAILABLE IN MORE THAN ONE KEY. I DON'T HAVE A HARMONICA FOR EVERY KEY.  I  HAVE
BEEN PLAYING HARMONICA FOR MANY YEARS AND AT THIS TIME OF YEAR I ENJOY  GOING TO
SENIOR CENTERS AND REST HOMES TO ENTERTAIN THE CLIENTS AND STAFF AT THE 
FACILITIES.  I LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR UPDATES.  THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR  TIME AND
TALENT.  I WISH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY A HAPPY HOLIDAY  SEASON.

SINCERELY, 
ROLAND ESSAFF

Love the sight.  Have been blowing for about a year. Am looking for tabs for
Ashes of Love and On the Road Again. I like anything bluegrass. Keep up the
good work and thanks for what you do.

October 14, 2005

Mark,

hey, Thank you for your terrific harmonica site!! I don't know how many people have thanked you, probably many,
but still not enough. I used your site many times, but the only other time i e-mailed you was when i had a problem....

 
then i was without my computer for a month and when i got back on line, i couldn't get your site. For some reason
or another i kept getting that pop up that says THIS SITE CANNOT BE FOUND and after a week of this I almost
freaked out thinking your site must be gone.
 
Thank God it is still here.  Hurray!!! I appreciate it very much and THANK YOU for all you do. Your site is so much
better than even the pay sites, the windbag type self promoters like Jon Gindick who (yeah, he plays quite good) charge
an arm and leg and offer nothing for free and send out a ton of spam. Your site is the only one that offers the entire tab,
not just a little solo and a midi file to listen to it and practice. Tabs--at least to me---aren't too helpful if I don't really
know a tune by heart and there aren't to many of those. 12-bar blues would be another good one!!!!
hint, hint, (subtle aren't i???)
 
I'd be glad to contribute something to your site if you are accepting donations. I'd be happy to send a check through snail mail....
 
Also, I've been trying to figure out how to play Neil Young's Heart of Gold, not just the intro or the little solo, but the
whole song. I bet lots of people would appreciate it. Sounds easy to play, but for me very hard to figure out!!!!! Keep
going, your site really cranks and I get a buzz every time you put another tune up. YEHAW! I enjoy the hell out of it!
 
Many thanks,
 
your pal,

September 28, 2005

Hey Mark,
I just had to tell you what a great help your site has been to me over the few years i've been playing harmonica. Thanks for all the hard work. Don't know what i would have done without all the tabs!!
Ralph Thomas
P.S.
There are a lot of people i talk to at Harmonicaclub.com that feel the same way.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for that!  Been looking everywhere for a boogie woogie tab, my
band and I had great fun with this last night!

September 15, 2005

I just retired and have decided to learn how to play the harmonica.  Your site is wonderful.  Thank you for all the effort you have put into it.  The songs are a little advanced for me now, but maybe is a couple of months, I can play some of them.

 Thanks again.  Your work is appreciated.

 Take care,

BOB

 

September 12, 2005

Mark,  Good morning to  you and your family.
 
I am listening to  Ramblin' Rose,  and  want to thank
 
you again  for  your  Site.    I enjoy the music each
 
and every day.    I am so happy I discovered it, too.
 
 
Did you ever get an email noting:  
 
"In God We Trust"  on any envelope you mail?
 
I think it's a good practice, and I have been doing this.
 
Have a great day.

September 8, 2005

Mark - I am so glad my email reached you, but my jaw dropped when I saw the work you have been doing. 

I have been looking for something like this, but because I played by ear, I really didn't know how to post a
question about these notes.  You seem know so much about music.  I will have to study your charts more
before I can really tell you anything.  I only know that I tried so hard to learn the tabs to songs that it became
more of a barrier than anything, I had to hear the instruments play.  I have found that mainly string seems to
work best with harmonica.  Thank you so much for the information, and any extra I come up with by ear I will
pass on to you, I hope it will help.   

Take Care - Cherice

Hey Mark,
 
I just wanted to say thanks for everything.  It has been a while since I checked out
your web-site and it is looking good, and my... the wealth of information, etc., is just so great!
It goes 'On, and on and on..." :)  It is nice that you share your personal life too, family, events.. etc., 


In today's cold world of computers and technology so much of the human aspect is missing.. so thanks for keeping it real.

 
I especially want to say thank you for the humor today--I am not sure if you have been doing this for a
while or not as (like I said, it has been a while), but I am going through a really rough time right now, and
I actually laughed out loud and it just felt so good to be okay for a minute.
 
Best to you and yours, thanks again,

G'day Mark --  Listening to some of your background music as I write -- 'Wind Beneath My Wings' -- 
just thought I'd tell you I use your (our) site a real lot !  I have made several cassette tapes of my favorites
to play along with, and now I, and an accordion player (lady) and ,soon hopefully, a  bass guitar fellow, will
be able to entertain some of the other residents in this big ole retirement "Resort".
 
                      Keep up the wonderful work; it should give you lots of satisfaction eh !
 
                       Stay well,    Kelowna Bill.

Keep up the excellent work.

July 8, 2005

Mark, what a great site you have put together!!!!!  I can’t fathom the hours you have put into it.  For a
beginner like me it is just fantastic.  My wife would like me to learn ‘Blue eyes crying in the rain’ by
Willie. I have not been able to locate a harp book with W.N. songs, and would sure love the tabs.  Willie
Nelson songs are great for sitting around the campfire and most everyone knows them.  Any help would
be greatly appreciated!!!! 

Thanks for all the work you have already done.

 Best Wishes

Mark,

I am amazed at your kindness, and of the time and effort that you have
extended to the group. Time after time, I watched as you went out of
your way, spending many hours of your personal time to be of help to
someone asking nothing in return.

I for one think the group owes you a big thank you!

Have a great weekend, and thank you again.

Mark,
   You seem to be venturing into ever deeper water in
your already "Best of its kind" site and I wonder if
you are ready to gird up your loins and attack "Orange
Blossom Special" I find it easy enough to tab with the
many cheat sheets that I have, but my results don,t
seem to tally with what I hear on disk when I play a
few bars. My johnny Cash book and several fake books
agree on the musical notation that I am working with.
All the best, Dwight Moore

Fellow Harpers,
Just a note to all you harpers out there.  I posted message #960 and
to my rescue came Mark Purintun.   He not only responded to my
message
the same day, but the following day had the song tabbed, along with
serveral Midi's.  The service was last weekend and went extremely
well.
Mark:  I know you are reading this and just to let you know, with the
exception of maintaining composure while playing, all went fine.  I
ended up using the tab you supplied, played with a "G" harp.  I took
your advise and practiced this song about 300 times.  I believe that
helped to exercise the 9 & 10 hole reeds that had not been played
very
much prior to this song.  Thanks again for all your help Mark and for
your web site.  Getting into your music theory pages were extremely
helpful. If you want to hire me as VP of Marketing of Mark Purintun,
I
will gladly volunteer my services at NO CHARGE. Thanks again my
friend. For all fellow harpers and new harpers to our group;  if you
have not checked out Mark's site ( http://www.dataflo.net/~mpurintun/ ) please do
so.
Grace and Peace.

June 11, 2005

I found the tab of "Bring Him Home" on Mark Purintun's web site being
in the TV/Movies songs section. That same site is listed 05th June
this year in reply to a request for a tab to Piano Man. Check it out.

Incidentally Mark's site is surely the most awe inspiring thing that
I have seen for a long time. Nevertheless 3(three) things, namely,
tabs for "Misty" and "Mean Woman Blues", tabs for "Ramblin' Rose" and
"River Deep Mountain High" are same on the 70's - 90's page(s), and,
credits for "Whatever Will Be Will Be" are apparently by Ray Evans
and Ray Evans. Well, now, I am very far from being perfect, and, I'm
not throwing stones at Mister Purintun's website but I reckon it
certainly rocks.

I ran across your site today.  It's really great.  I notice on your 100 Best Country Songs #47

to know this because she was one of my mom's favorite singers. 

Thanks!  Have a great day!

Mark,

Great web site for harpers. Thanks- I look at it almost everyday.
I have spent lots of time surfing the web for the tab to one of the Ozark Mt. Daredevils' songs called
 "if you want to get to heaven", to no avail. Any ideas how or where to find something like that.

Hi Mark,
 
I ran across your Harpin' an' a Whinin'  site a bit ago (well, uh, a couple of minutes ago actually).  I don't know if you know but on
the spelling of Julio Iglesias could use an update (unless, of course, there's a Julio Englasis - LOL).
 
BTW, what an impressive site!  - and what an ambitious undertaking.  Kudos!

Hello,

I've just discovered your fantastic site!

Really pretty and really practical.

Many thanks for all that help.

Seeing as I can't get the notes right by myself, I've been
trying to find tabs for The Third Man theme.

Have you tabbed that one, or can you direct me anywhere else to find it?
 
Thanks.

Hi, Mark!

Your web site is just lovely and the midis are excellent!  The graphics are very cute, too LOL

I am compiling a web page honouring the four RCMP constables who were gunned down up here.  Perhaps you
read about it wherever you are?  Anyway, I attended the Memorial Service and was very moved by Mr. Ian Tyson's
rendition of his song Four Strong Winds -- it was always a favourite of mine.

I would like to use your midi as a background if you do not mind.  Could you send me your logo for link/credit at the
bottom of my page?  It will not be directly linked since I am downloading your midi to my page.

If you would be interested in checking out my personal little web site, please visit here:
http://members.shaw.ca/frozenorth/welcome.htm

My proposed page will be included in: http://members.shaw.ca/frozenorth2/chapter2.htm

Thank you for any consideration you may give my request.

Hello I was surfing the web the other day when I found out about your site, now I thank you for all you have done and all your hard work
but I have one question about your site, Will it work for Richter harmonicas or is it only for Diatonic Harmonicas? thank you for your time,      
      


                                                                                                   Sincerely,

March 2, 2005

I like your site it;s just that I do'nt understand some things. I am 68yrs. and have been playing harp for three
years now. I play for my own amazement. Most of the songs you tab. are in the key of D.They can be played
on any key harp the pattern should always be the same.I have a C and B flat harp so I try to find midi in those keys
to play along with.I see in one of your colums is headed Key. For instance C/F and of course the song is tabed D.
What does this mean?? I do'nt exspect a reply. I can play a couple of tunes cross harp G.

Thanks Jack Mesick Mich

 

February 28, 2005

Hello,
I'm 14 and an aspiring harmonica player. I've gotten much better with the help of your site and I was
wondering if I could make a couple requests for songs. I know you're busy and all, but these are some
songs that I would like to learn:
~All along the watchtower (solos)-Bob Dylan
~The Ghost of Tom Joad (solos)-B.Springsteen

Thanks, I appreciate it.

Hey man, i love your  Harpin' and Whinin' web-site.  I thought you did an excellent job setting it up, and the
lists of possible tabs are awesome.  I could spend too much time in this site, but is there any way I can turn
the music off while looking around at the site?  Other than that, great job man.

Hello Mark, my name is Michael, a new but frequent visitor to your website. I just started playing
the harmonica over the last couple months or so as to continue my grandfather’s legacy. I have to say this
is the most unbelievable sight I have found. I thank you so much for tabbing/acquiring these songs, it has
really helped me practice and get somewhat better. I started out on an old Hohner Chromonica only to later
realize it is more complex than a diatonic. Anyway, my point of writing to you was in regard to one song…
The House of the Rising Sun. I have been practicing it non-stop but can’t seem to hit that draw 10 note. Is there
any way to play the whole song in a lower octave without having to re-tab the whole song? If not, do you have
any suggestions on how I can possibly play the higher notes, especially with a draw so that it doesn’t sound
like a squealing pig? I appreciate any information you can provide me with.

Thank You,

Michael



January 28, 2005

Just ran across you site a couple of days ago while surfing for harmonica websites.  You have done a superb job with content
and presentation.  I tried to play the harp about 60 years ago, but didn't stick with it, since there was no real real instruction around. 
Now I'm 72.  I decided to try again.  i bought some good harps in C, D, A & F.  I'm really excited with my progress.  I'm still pretty
average at bending, but I'm progressing.  Your website will be invaluable to me, along with instruction CDs I bought,  Thanks again
for your valuable contribution in making playing the harp seem not quite so intimidating.

I can't tell you how much I enjoy sitting up in the early morning and
blowing to the songs you have written out and put on your sight.  I am new
to the harp and thanks to you I am actually able to play some songs and
have a great time doing it. Thank you so very much.

Good morning and a great new year!!!
   My brother downloaded your site on my computer several months when he was here visiting  but I could never find where it was
so he walked me through it yesterday via phone. Do you remember what the name of the song was that you used to have that played
right when your website pulled up? I remember pulling the front page up and really liked that lively tune. Thanks,

Hi Mark!  I just found your web site "Harpin and a Whinin" and think its great!  I'm an amateur acousic guitar and harmonica
player and like everyone else would like to improve.  I wanted to download some midis you have posted and burn them to cd
to use a portable practice media to play my guitar and harmonica over them, but cannot seem to find the files from my Roxio
CD creator.  Is that because midis cannot be burnt to CD?  Is there a way to convert them to wave files then?  Should I be
looking into a device such as a POD to do what I want?  Or would I have the same problem?   Thanks Mark if you can point me
in the right direction..

I thought you would enjoy this.   I did.   I enjoy your   Harpin'an' a Whinin' so much.  Don't know how I would get along without
all that beautiful music.  Wish I could play some musical instrument because learning on your site would be so helpful.   
I can't sing, but I do some when I listen to the tune and can read the lyrics.   Thanks so much.   Have a great week.

Thank you for your fantastic site. I've been enjoying it for several months.
It's a labor of love that I hope you continue. 
Three harp players I especially enjoy listening to are Charlie Musslewhite, Sonny Boy Williamson and Junior Wells. 
If you ever find the time, I would like to see some song keys for Junior Wells.
Best wishes to you for the up coming holidays.

Hello mark.
 
I've been visiting your website CONSTANTLY for the past two weeks, playing my new Blues Harp I got not awhile ago.
 
Althought you have a lot of tabs over your site, I'm still after several I couldn't find anywhere! and they are actually the reason
I wanted a harmonica anyways.
 
Spaghetti movies tabs! Western melodies :) The man with the harmonica, My Name is Nobody, Hang'M High, etc.
I'm also after Kill Bills main title, The grand Dual which has a BEAUTIFUL harmonica piece in it.
 
Is there a chance you could help me out? I've tried tabbing songs myself, but apart from several notes I managed to acquire,
I couldn't create a full scale melody.
 
Thank you :)

Hi Mark,
I would like to begin this email by saying that I absolutely love your site.  The tabs that I get off of it...
I would be lost without them.  Since I have started playing harmonica, I hear songs every once in a while that
make me say to myself, "Geez, that would be a great song to be able to play."  Well, one song hit me recently
that I positively love, and dearly wish that I could play.  It is called "Hallelujah" by Rufus Wainwright, and
it is in the move "Shrek".  I have fallen in love with this song and REALLY want to know how to play it.  My
question to you: is there any way that you could tab this for me?  I realize that this is asking a lot, but I
thought it was worth a try.  I would post it on Harptalk, but I know that many people are horribly against tabs,
and I don't want to be yelled at.

 

Thanks for your time,

Daniel

What an incredible site.  I have a humble request.  I have only been playing for about a month and think
I'm coming along ok.  More than anything, I want to be able to play Blue Skies (Willie Nelson)  a very
soulful version.  But I can't even find the tab anywhere for it on the web.  Oddly enough, it was hearing
willie on the harp on this song really blowing it out that made me want to play.  Unfortunately I don't
quite have the talent yet to figure it out and tab it.
 
You have an incredible list and your site is the most impressive harp site I've seen.  In fact I have it
on my favorites list!

Thanks a lot for putting up this great web site. I can honestly say that I learned how to play harmonica from your site.

With that said, I would like to give a suggestion. I would like to see more  classic rock type songs at your web site. I personally
tabulated "Dust in the Wind" By Kansas, though it still needs some tweaking, and would gladly and  it to you. I have also a small
portion of "winds of change" by Scorpions tabulatede.  But I would like to see more of these type of songs. I would  like to see tabs
for "Ghost of tom joad" by Bruce Springsteen, or "Still loving you" By Scorpions...ect...

Well thank you for putting up such an awesome site, and thank you for all the help you could give me.

A very nice gift you gave me Mark. This diddy was sung by a fellow craftsman I spent many years working with. I always carried this
song in my head and never could come up with the answer. Now in my retired years, this harp bizzness has taken hold, and makes up
for the void in my life.    I will let you know how I do.  Thanks again for your kind and speedy work. Hope you have many years of
harmonica enjoyment.

Hello hello Mark, I'm issuing you a long overdue thanks for creating your 'song key' website; I have used
it for the past month or so, picking appropriate songs, in appropriate keys to practice with, and although my
harp skills on the scale of 1 to 10 were probably at 3.5, I now feel I'm up to 4.5 and climbing!

One song I haven't been able to find is "Red Sails In The Sunset".  But Wow, I don't know how you find the time
to do all you've done!  (and still under construction!) Enjoy those little bits of humour at page bottoms!  Thank,
Thanks again!

I've just started learning the harmonica, and I have to say that your website is by far the best harp tab
site on the Internet.  You've put lost of great songs up in an easy-to-read format.  The only request I've

Thanks for your effort - and keep on going!

down aways and you will see Hurricane modeling the newest thing in caps. (A little something left over from WW1

Hurricane is a great harper and you should do your ears a favor and give it a listen.

Hey Mark, been meaning to tell you I've gotten a lot of good use out of your site.  Can't really use the
tabs with my chroms, except using the "tab-Slide Guide Chart" backwards putting them into music notation,
but your midi files are always simple enough to break down easily with mid notation software.  And if one
key doesn't play right, you've always got alternate keys.  Everything I've tried has been very playable.

Thanks,

Thank you so much for your website.  It will certainly help me play along with some of the tunes you have
included there.  I used to play a chrom many years ago, but I kinda put it down and didn't pick it up until
just recently.  Now it seems I will have to learn all over again..  My old chrom is not so good any more so
I bought me a Hohner CX12.  I hope this will work for me.  Anyway you really have something going on here. 
I know it will help.  Thanx again,

I know I just made you "cringe" a tad as I know just how hard you have been working at your website's building.

Here's a great site I found with lotsa songs charted for harmonica and many with MIDI sound files to play. 
Maybe the next song you want to learn is here!  He's got lots of fun animations and the page is done accurately
with a sense of humor.

Can you explain the Circle of Fifths?
Do you know the hand signs musicians use to indicate the key to others on stage?

Mark,  I just discovered your site this morning via the Harpin group.  Wow I have been playing harp for the
last twenty-five years.  For my own enjoyment, and not very good.  I have had more fun today playing your tab
songs than in all of the last many years. I would gladly pay for a book, in fact I have, many times!  but your
songs are so easy to play and the accompanyment really makes it easy.  Sometimes even old songs, I just have
trouble remembering how they go, or at least the whole song.  (I'm going to be 70 this Mo.)  Thanks a million,
and man, you have really put a lot of work in and it is really appreciated!

   You seem to be venturing into ever deeper water in
your already "Best of its kind" site and I wonder if
you are ready to gird up your loins and attack "Orange
Blossom Special" I find it easy enough to tab with the
many cheat sheets that I have, but my results don,t
seem to tally with what I hear on disk when I play a
few bars. My johnny Cash book and several fake books
agree on the musical notation that I am working with.
All the best, Dwight Moore

Fellow Harpers,
Just a note to all you harpers out there.  I posted message #960 and
to my rescue came Mark Purintun.   He not only responded to my
message
the same day, but the following day had the song tabbed, along with
serveral Midi's.  The service was last weekend and went extremely
well.
Mark:  I know you are reading this and just to let you know, with the
exception of maintaining composure while playing, all went fine.  I
ended up using the tab you supplied, played with a "G" harp.  I took
your advise and practiced this song about 300 times.  I believe that
helped to exercise the 9 & 10 hole reeds that had not been played
very
much prior to this song.  Thanks again for all your help Mark and for
your web site.  Getting into your music theory pages were extremely
helpful. If you want to hire me as VP of Marketing of Mark Purintun,
I
will gladly volunteer my services at NO CHARGE. Thanks again my
friend. For all fellow harpers and new harpers to our group;  if you
have not checked out Mark's site ( http://www.dataflo.net/~mpurintun/ ) please do
so.
Grace and Peace.

I found the tab of "Bring Him Home" on Mark Purintun's web site being
in the TV/Movies songs section. That same site is listed 05th June
this year in reply to a request for a tab to Piano Man. Check it out.

Incidentally Mark's site is surely the most awe inspiring thing that
I have seen for a long time. Nevertheless 3(three) things, namely,
tabs for "Misty" and "Mean Woman Blues", tabs for "Ramblin' Rose" and
"River Deep Mountain High" are same on the 70's - 90's page(s), and,
credits for "Whatever Will Be Will Be" are apparently by Ray Evans
and Ray Evans. Well, now, I am very far from being perfect, and, I'm
not throwing stones at Mister Purintun's website but I reckon it
certainly rocks.

along to. It sure helps to learn a new tune.

Mark,

Great web site for harpers. Thanks- I look at it almost everyday.
I have spent lots of time surfing the web for the tab to one of the Ozark Mt. Daredevils' songs called
 "if you want to get to heaven", to no avail. Any ideas how or where to find something like that.

I am fairly new to the harp and keyed in "harmonica tunes"
and found your site, is this really all for free ? this has to be the
best website I have ever seen.

Thank you,

Hi Mark,
 
I ran across your Harpin' an' a Whinin'  site a bit ago (well, uh, a couple of minutes ago actually).  I don't know if you know but on
the spelling of Julio Iglesias could use an update (unless, of course, there's a Julio Englasis - LOL).
 
BTW, what an impressive site!  - and what an ambitious undertaking.  Kudos!
 
Kind regards,
Terry Berg

Hello,

I've just discovered your fantastic site!

Really pretty and really practical.

Many thanks for all that help.

Seeing as I can't get the notes right by myself, I've been
trying to find tabs for The Third Man theme.

Have you tabbed that one, or can you direct me anywhere else to find it?
 
Thanks.

I love your songs with words and music. Beautiful back ground. Love to play along with them.
Can they be purchased on CD and if so how much?  I like the 70 to 90  and the Old time favorites.

Hi, Mark!

Your web site is just lovely and the midis are excellent!  The graphics are very cute, too LOL

I am compiling a web page honouring the four RCMP constables who were gunned down up here.  Perhaps you
read about it wherever you are?  Anyway, I attended the Memorial Service and was very moved by Mr. Ian Tyson's
rendition of his song Four Strong Winds -- it was always a favourite of mine.

I would like to use your midi as a background if you do not mind.  Could you send me your logo for link/credit at the
bottom of my page?  It will not be directly linked since I am downloading your midi to my page.

If you would be interested in checking out my personal little web site, please visit here:
http://members.shaw.ca/frozenorth/welcome.htm

My proposed page will be included in: http://members.shaw.ca/frozenorth2/chapter2.htm

Thank you for any consideration you may give my request.  

Sincerely
Sandra Miller

Hello I was surfing the web the other day when I found out about your site, now I thank you for all you have done and all your hard work
but I have one question about your site, Will it work for Richter harmonicas or is it only for Diatonic Harmonicas? thank you for your time,

I like your site it;s just that I do'nt understand some things. I am 68yrs. and have been playing harp for three
years now. I play for my own amazement. Most of the songs you tab. are in the key of D.They can be played
on any key harp the pattern should always be the same.I have a C and B flat harp so I try to find midi in those keys
to play along with.I see in one of your colums is headed Key. For instance C/F and of course the song is tabed D.
What does this mean?? I do'nt exspect a reply. I can play a couple of tunes cross harp G.

Thanks Jack Mesick Mich

Hello,
I'm 14 and an aspiring harmonica player. I've gotten much better with the help of your site and I was
wondering if I could make a couple requests for songs. I know you're busy and all, but these are some
songs that I would like to learn:
~All along the watchtower (solos)-Bob Dylan
~The Ghost of Tom Joad (solos)-B.Springsteen

Thanks, I appreciate it.

the music off while looking around at the site?  Other than that, great job man.

Hello Mark, my name is Michael, a new but frequent visitor to your website. I just started playing
the harmonica over the last couple months or so as to continue my grandfather’s legacy. I have to say this
is the most unbelievable sight I have found. I thank you so much for tabbing/acquiring these songs, it has
really helped me practice and get somewhat better. I started out on an old Hohner Chromonica only to later
realize it is more complex than a diatonic. Anyway, my point of writing to you was in regard to one song…
The House of the Rising Sun. I have been practicing it non-stop but can’t seem to hit that draw 10 note. Is there
any way to play the whole song in a lower octave without having to re-tab the whole song? If not, do you have
any suggestions on how I can possibly play the higher notes, especially with a draw so that it doesn’t sound
like a squealing pig? I appreciate any information you can provide me with.

Thank You,

Michael



January 28, 2005

Just ran across you site a couple of days ago while surfing for harmonica websites.  You have done a superb job with content
and presentation.  I tried to play the harp about 60 years ago, but didn't stick with it, since there was no real real instruction around. 
Now I'm 72.  I decided to try again.  i bought some good harps in C, D, A & F.  I'm really excited with my progress.  I'm still pretty
average at bending, but I'm progressing.  Your website will be invaluable to me, along with instruction CDs I bought,  Thanks again
for your valuable contribution in making playing the harp seem not quite so intimidating.

   My brother downloaded your site on my computer several months when he was here visiting  but I could never find where it was
so he walked me through it yesterday via phone. Do you remember what the name of the song was that you used to have that played
right when your website pulled up? I remember pulling the front page up and really liked that lively tune. Thanks,

Hi Mark!  I just found your web site "Harpin and a Whinin" and think its great!  I'm an amateur acousic guitar and harmonica
player and like everyone else would like to improve.  I wanted to download some midis you have posted and burn them to cd
to use a portable practice media to play my guitar and harmonica over them, but cannot seem to find the files from my Roxio
CD creator.  Is that because midis cannot be burnt to CD?  Is there a way to convert them to wave files then?  Should I be
looking into a device such as a POD to do what I want?  Or would I have the same problem?   Thanks Mark if you can point me
in the right direction..

I can't sing, but I do some when I listen to the tune and can read the lyrics.   Thanks so much.   Have a great week.

Hello mark.
 
I've been visiting your website CONSTANTLY for the past two weeks, playing my new Blues Harp I got not awhile ago.
 
Althought you have a lot of tabs over your site, I'm still after several I couldn't find anywhere! and they are actually the reason
I wanted a harmonica anyways.
 
Spaghetti movies tabs! Western melodies :) The man with the harmonica, My Name is Nobody, Hang'M High, etc.
I'm also after Kill Bills main title, The grand Dual which has a BEAUTIFUL harmonica piece in it.
 
Is there a chance you could help me out? I've tried tabbing songs myself, but apart from several notes I managed to acquire,
I couldn't create a full scale melody.
 
Thank you :)

Hi Mark,
I would like to begin this email by saying that I absolutely love your site.  The tabs that I get off of it...
I would be lost without them.  Since I have started playing harmonica, I hear songs every once in a while that
make me say to myself, "Geez, that would be a great song to be able to play."  Well, one song hit me recently
that I positively love, and dearly wish that I could play.  It is called "Hallelujah" by Rufus Wainwright, and
it is in the move "Shrek".  I have fallen in love with this song and REALLY want to know how to play it.  My
question to you: is there any way that you could tab this for me?  I realize that this is asking a lot, but I
thought it was worth a try.  I would post it on Harptalk, but I know that many people are horribly against tabs,
and I don't want to be yelled at.

 

Thanks for your time,

Daniel

What an incredible site.  I have a humble request.  I have only been playing for about a month and think
I'm coming along ok.  More than anything, I want to be able to play Blue Skies (Willie Nelson)  a very
soulful version.  But I can't even find the tab anywhere for it on the web.  Oddly enough, it was hearing
willie on the harp on this song really blowing it out that made me want to play.  Unfortunately I don't
quite have the talent yet to figure it out and tab it.
 
You have an incredible list and your site is the most impressive harp site I've seen.  In fact I have it
on my favorites list!

Thanks a lot for putting up this great web site. I can honestly say that I learned how to play harmonica from your site.

With that said, I would like to give a suggestion. I would like to see more  classic rock type songs at your web site. I personally
tabulated "Dust in the Wind" By Kansas, though it still needs some tweaking, and would gladly and  it to you. I have also a small
portion of "winds of change" by Scorpions tabulatede.  But I would like to see more of these type of songs. I would  like to see tabs
for "Ghost of tom joad" by Bruce Springsteen, or "Still loving you" By Scorpions...ect...

Well thank you for putting up such an awesome site, and thank you for all the help you could give me.

A very nice gift you gave me Mark. This diddy was sung by a fellow craftsman I spent many years working with. I always carried this
song in my head and never could come up with the answer. Now in my retired years, this harp bizzness has taken hold, and makes up
for the void in my life.    I will let you know how I do.  Thanks again for your kind and speedy work. Hope you have many years of

Hello hello Mark, I'm issuing you a long overdue thanks for creating your 'song key' website; I have used
it for the past month or so, picking appropriate songs, in appropriate keys to practice with, and although my
harp skills on the scale of 1 to 10 were probably at 3.5, I now feel I'm up to 4.5 and climbing!

One song I haven't been able to find is "Red Sails In The Sunset".  But Wow, I don't know how you find the time
to do all you've done!  (and still under construction!) Enjoy those little bits of humour at page bottoms!  Thank,
Thanks again!

I've just started learning the harmonica, and I have to say that your website is by far the best harp tab
site on the Internet.  You've put lost of great songs up in an easy-to-read format.  The only request I've

Thanks for your effort - and keep on going!

that was not interested in money but in the love of music.  And your website is the leader of the pack.  I come
to you wondering if you have ever tabbed any of big sugar's songs.  And if not, I would ask that you give it a shot. 

Thank you.

down aways and you will see Hurricane modeling the newest thing in caps. (A little something left over from WW1

Hurricane is a great harper and you should do your ears a favor and give it a listen. 
You will find many other things on Mark's site that will make your day.

Hey Mark, been meaning to tell you I've gotten a lot of good use out of your site.  Can't really use the
tabs with my chroms, except using the "tab-Slide Guide Chart" backwards putting them into music notation,
but your midi files are always simple enough to break down easily with mid notation software.  And if one
key doesn't play right, you've always got alternate keys.  Everything I've tried has been very playable.

Thanks,

Hi Mark,

I can see I'll be spending some time there to hone
my diatonic chops...

Thank you so much for your website.  It will certainly help me play along with some of the tunes you have
included there.  I used to play a chrom many years ago, but I kinda put it down and didn't pick it up until
just recently.  Now it seems I will have to learn all over again..  My old chrom is not so good any more so
I bought me a Hohner CX12.  I hope this will work for me.  Anyway you really have something going on here. 
I know it will help.  Thanx again,

From  Gerry T.

I see your website is developing nicely, it must be a super time consumer for you at times, the info there
is solid.  What you might include with the harp tabs is the chordial sequences as a compliment to the tabs. 
I know I just made you "cringe" a tad as I know just how hard you have been working at your website's building. 
The Circle of Fifths is really a nice think with the minor keys included, a very cool thing.

Mark,

Just found your website today.  I am a semi-retired grandfather and just been playing for a couple of years. 
Your site is really great and refreshing.  Has a great selection of different types of music.  It is great to
see such a site as yours.  Just wanted to pass on my thanks for your work.

Have a great day!

Friends of the Harmonica,

Here's a great site I found with lotsa songs charted for harmonica and many with MIDI sound files to play. 
Maybe the next song you want to learn is here!  He's got lots of fun animations and the page is done accurately
with a sense of humor.

Can you explain the Circle of Fifths?
Do you know the hand signs musicians use to indicate the key to others on stage?

Recommended.

Mark,  I just discovered your site this morning via the Harpin group.  Wow I have been playing harp for the
last twenty-five years.  For my own enjoyment, and not very good.  I have had more fun today playing your tab
songs than in all of the last many years. I would gladly pay for a book, in fact I have, many times!  but your
songs are so easy to play and the accompanyment really makes it easy.  Sometimes even old songs, I just have
trouble remembering how they go, or at least the whole song.  (I'm going to be 70 this Mo.)  Thanks a million,
and man, you have really put a lot of work in and it is really appreciated!

Jim
