For a stage mic I’ll will look a light and comfortable mic to hold in my hand. for prefer to hold. I have recently started playing the Audix Fireball check it out.
Another option is to play in front of a cardioid condenser mic which be held on a mic stand such as the Audio Technica AE5400

Keep blowing out and move the harmonica from 5,6 without stopping the airstream. Also perhaps practice the last phrase starting on (4) slowly without the metronome

We’re going to learn a II V I in Db major using the Db major scale and the Ab dominant bebop scale. Once you can play in the original key try to transpose it to a different keys, C would be the easiest to start!

I thought to limit it to the melody and focus on how Thielemans interpret it. There is a lot to learn by paying attention to his time feel, passing tones and articulation
