Tremolo Harmonica

I have a 40 holed harmonica(20 on top and 20 on bottom) can someone please help me understand it?

Can anyone show me a note list for it? its came with some intructions and a note list( C D E F G A B C D E) and a few songs. i dont know if this is the right list or not and i would also like to learn some new bluesy kinda songs. can any one help me under stand?

20/40 is either a tremolo or an octave harp. There are two possible systems for the scale and it depends on who made it.

One type (probably what you have at 20/40) is the Weiner (Viena) system that is the same scale pattern as a 10-hole Richter type except you only have one note (either blow or draw but not both) in each hole.

The other type (usually an odd number like 21/42) is solo/scale-tuned and are the same scale pattern as a chromatic harmonica except there's only one reed in each hole.

20/40 gives you exactly the pattern of a 10-hole diatonic (blues harp) because each pair of holes (left-right) functions the same way as does one hole of a 10-hole harp. The 10-hole harp has two reeds in each hole - a blow and draw.

If you number your holes between each hole (1-2 becomes 1; 3-4 becomes 2, etc...) then you can use it exactly like a 10-hole harp from tabs. BUT! this only works with the Weiner system harps such as the Hohner Comet and won't work with Asian style harps like the Suzuki Su21H

We'd need to know what brand and model (who made it and what's on it) to be more specific about the "note list" (scale pattern) and provide a link. There is an incredible selection of variations that make a one-size-fits-all answer impossible without specifics.

Search "Tremolo Harmonica" and "Octave Harmonica" and you'll find some web pages. If it's a Hohner then their catalog has a very nice diagram of your harp's scale pattern. You can download their catalog at http://www.hohnerusa.com/index.php?1994 - look at page 50 [I mention the Hohner catalog because the Hohner Comet is probably the most common 20/40 Oktav harp on the market)

Keep in mind that these are for folk tunes and melodies - not for wailing the blues. They're great for folk tunes and melodies too. If you want to play "bluesy kinda songs" then you need a "Blues Harp" which is a 10-hole diatonic.
