Hey there!

I'm a new user in here and I wanted to ask y'all some questions.

Do any of you know what harmonicas does Ketch use in Mary's Kitchen and Down Home Girl?

I mean, do you know the key?

I think they're both with a D harp, but I have one and I've tried a million times to figure out how to play them and I can't find anything.
Maybe I'm asking too much, but... Does any of you know (or could write a tab) for any of these great songs?

Thanks a lot from Spain!

hello and Welcome!

Ketch quite often uses two harmonicas for some songs
as you can see during the lightning 100 radio show footage for Mary's Kitchen. So if you can get some of it with a D harp, try playing the rest with an A harp (ie cross harp)

i never noticed before but Willie says (in storyteller mode) "just about everyday i would take my fiddle down there .. trying to pay the rent" I know he does play some fiddle these days but was he playing fiddle when they were hanging out in Boone?
