    Cool Melodicas

    Hi. Any melodica players out there? They sound nice with a uke. I see some posts on youtube with that combonation.

    No interest in playing one myself, but I gave my son one for Christmas. I'm starting to think that kid can play anything I put in front of him!

    Default Melodica

    I have a cheap one (Schoenhut). They are fun but tricky to play, especially if you are asthmatic like me. Always use the hookah thing.

    I don't play that instrument but might play with one some day. The problem is it barely costs more than a melodica to get a shoenhut celeste and that has my eye a bit more. Either way, it is a lower priority than a guitar amp for my uke.

    Not to hijack the thread, but anyone with vids to share with a melodica?

    I've used mine in multi-tracked videos to fill in for horns on soul stuff. Fun, but it's a little hard to make them very expressive, since you don't have much control over the shape of the sound. Or maybe that's just my lack of skill.
