Alternate Tuning Ideas for Cajun Accordion and Diatonic Harmonica

Update 06.12.2019

 

facebook/221Tuning

I came up with some alternative tunings for Cajun Accordions and Diatonic Harmonicas. The one row Cajun-Accordions do usually have the same 'Richter' tuning as a Bluesharp has.     

I was looking for an easier way to play the Blues with the common three chords (C, F and G7 in the key of C). After playing around for some time I invented in the year 2000 a continuous scale for diatonic instruments."Cyclic Scale 221". This means that the notes do always have the same steps. This allows to play 5 different mixolydian major scales and 5 different natural minor (aeolian) scales, which are related/similar to the circle of 4ths (and 5ths).

Now the nice thing about this is if you blow(push) or draw(pull) any three notes right next to then it will always result in a chord (triad in root position), major or minor depending where you are.
This makes it very easy if you want to use the instrument to accompany someone.

The next interesting thing is that if you take the next note (next to the first three notes in a row) you will always have the flat seventh, which is nice for the Blues.
It is always the main note, third, quint and flat seventh. (flat7ths-chord progression in the circle of 4ths, or flat 7ths-chord-turnaround or "flat7ths spiral")

As an example if you draw:Harmonica(push:Accordion) from the the C (4 notes in a row) then the notes would be C,E,G,Bb.
Easy as that. And like this you jump from one chord to the next.(flat7 spiral: C,E,G, Bb---,E,G,Bb,D---G,Bb,D,F---Bb,D,F,Ab---D,F,Ab,C---F,Ab,C,Eb and so on....)

Modified "Kniri 221" Tunings for 10-hole harmonica

 

I developed my "Kniri 221" Tuning and combined with a part of the "Richter" Tuning.

With blue notes Eb and Gb (bend) and Bb (draw) in key C

Holes 1-4 and 5-8 have same notes (scales)

Easy to play bluesy tunes in a single key over 2 1/2 octaves

3. Modus

Der dritte Modus beruht auf der Großterzteilung der Oktave
und unterteilt die große Terz als Keimzelle des Modus in einen Ganzton
und zwei Halbtöne; er ist viermal transponierbar.
In der hierbei verwendeten Sprachregelung Olivier Messiaens
gilt die von C aus mit dem Ganztonschritt beginnende Gestalt bereits
als die 1. Transposition. Als Zahlengestalt sieht dieser Modus so aus:
211211211 und besitzt zwei Umkehrungen (112112112 und 121121121)
