RIchter chromatics
« on: December 21, 2008, 01:56:19 PM »
I've recently started looking at them differently, I had been limited on the double stops and things I wanted to do on solo, but when I want to do that sort of thing, it falls into place on the Richter tuned...

I'd like to learn how to play with those. Gary (Gnarly) did White Christmas on Youtube that was mostly chords and pretty neat. Not sure if that was Richter tuning or something he thought up but chords add a lot to a tune for sure. I believe the Koch is a richter tuned chromatic and has no valves and most diatonics have no valves so Im curious if you have valves on the chord tuned portions of the richter tuned Seydel?

Entire thing is valved. Came that way. It's just like a regular Chromatic DeLuxe, only RIchter tuned.

White Christmas is on a Chordomonica I that I retuned from a 260.
I like my major cross slide for chords and stuff but never practice--
The Magic Bop slide has some good chords too but no tonic chord for Ionian ???
