great lesson. took me a whole six months to pick this up myself !

I just picked up my Harp after what seem to be an eternity. I smoked for so long I couldn't play because of running out of air. All I own are some Special 20s that are 30 years old or more. Whammer Jammer was the reason I bought my first Harmonica. I am having a lot of trouble trying to tong. Also would the wood comb of a Marine Band give it a richer sound and are the reed easier to bend a note? They have become so expensive from when I bought the Special 20. I think they were 12 dollars back when got them.
