I had to buy a new harmonica last week. The old one died. I was playing it on a song by Tom Petty, and something didn’t sound right.
Now, if you have ever heard me play harmonica, a strange sound in itself would not be evidence that something was wrong with the instrument. However, the tone that came out was not a note that was clear sounding but obviously wrong.
No, it was more like the wheezing sound of a donkey with a sore throat. I am aware of my limited harmonica skills and am willing to own up to my musical mistakes, but this was not one of them.
