Which is a more difficult instrument… the didgeridoo or the harmonica?
Roach: The didgeridoo is by far much more difficult to get sound out of. I used to play the harmonica YEARS ago before synthesizers, didgs, etc. In fact, you might say it was my first instrument! Besides jamming to rock albums, I used to play it at a “job” I had where I would sit in a shed way out in the bush, chair leaned back, and change radio frequencies on a microwave transmitter every twenty minutes or so. (Someone say slacker?) I also used to play it when I was driving to Los Angeles to work with various electronic artists during the late 70’s. I always kept it in my glove box and would play it on the 405 freeway driving home at 2am into San Diego. I would be beyond tired but had to get home for work and would blow out on the harp to stay awake. It worked great. Strangely, when we started to get into full stride with Dust to Dust, I remembered that I used to play the harmonica, went out and bought a couple of cheap ones and picked up where I left off.
