Unlike the common bluesy-sounding diatonic harmonicas, in David's hands, the chromatic produces a sweet, fiddle-like sound and can handle fast, intricate melodies. Since the chromatic provides all the notes, David uses a C chromatic to play in all keys and can deal with tricky chord changes and key transitions without having to switch harmonicas. Before you say, "Oh no, not another jam-busting harmonica player," give David's playing a listen. You'll be more than pleasantly surprised.
