Calling Card
« on: March 13, 2021, 04:02:19 PM »
Hello SlideMeisters,

My name is Alan, British born, living and working in The Netherlands. I’m a professional singer with the Netherlands Radio Choir and a composer. Always been fascinated by the chromatic harmonica but have only taken it up seriously since March 2020. Studying harmonica has really kept sane during the COVID restrictions and lockdowns and, to be honest, something really positive to have emerged from the last crazy twelve months. I look forward to sharing thoughts, ideas and experiences with members of this forum.

Kind regards,
Alan

Welcome to the forum, Alan!  With your musical training and background, you’ll have a leg up on many of us. I think you’ll enjoy this group and learn a lot.

Welcome to the forum Alan!  Playing the harmonica has helped me through the isolation too.
