Harmonica

The harmonica is a reed instrument that is played by mouth. It is generally used in American Folk, Jazz, Country and Rock &Roll. There are many types of harmonicas, including diatonic, chromatic, tremolo, octave, orchestral, and bass versions. A harmonica is played by using the mouth (lips and/or tongue) to direct air into and out of one or more holes along a mouthpiece.
