Working on the old Blow and Strum, this is no BS. (Harmonica and uke). However, I have found that the baritone uke is a better fit than the tenor as an accompaniment for the harp. Just my opinion. Now my past comes to haunt me. I have always played the baritone using tenor chords. Now with the the harp, I have to use the real chords for the baritone. Hard getting used to this, and it takes awhile going back to the tenor as well. Keep working and trying. Good to keep the mind sharp, good to learn to do something new, cant wait for it to sound pretty good.

If you want to keep using the tenor chord on the baritone, You could just use a different harp.
If you're playing C shapes on the baritone, it will be sounding F chords, so you will need an F harp. If you are playing cross harp, instead of an F harp, use a Bb harp.

I find that a tenor and a harp work well together. Here's one from last year Old Rockin' Chair's Got Me- Hoagy Carmichael

Nice link. Thanks. Good advice on the harp. I think I will plod along for now since I am picking up the official baritone chords.
