Hohner Octaves

What type of harmonica do i have?

Its pretty long and has holes on the top and bottom
i really wanna learn how to play it after i heard the solo on doing it wrong by drake
sorry if i didn't specify which type i had

It's likely either a tremolo or an octave. The concept is the same with both (two reeds for each note) but the tremolo has the two reeds tuned slightly apart for a wavering tremolo sound where the octave has them tuned an octave apart for a bigger sound.

It's not what we play blues, rock, country, etc... on - that would be a 10-hole diatonic. The double reeds like you have are for playing tunes and melodies on and they're very good for that. They're very popular in parts of Europe and in Asia - not so popular in the US and UK. That's why there's not a lot of how to play stuff about them in English.

If it's made by Hohner then you can tell if it's a tremolo or octave harp by the shape. With very few exceptions, the Hohner octave harps are curved (banana shaped) and the tremolos are straight. The Comet, for example, is an octave harp. The Echo Celeste and Weekender are tremolos.

Also know that the German and Asian models have different scale patterns and neither is like a 10-hole diatonic "blues harp" you hear in most recordings.

That harmonica solo in Doing It Wrong sounds like a Hohner Chromonica to my ear. One of those will set you back about $150+ and it's different than all of the harmonicas mentioned above. I believe that's Stevie Wonder on harmonica in that recording in which case it probably is a Chromonica but I'm not into that sort of music so don't know for certain which particular harp. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/folk-traditional-instruments/hohner-270-super-chromonica-chromatic-harmonica
