This is a question we are always asked when we demonstrate harmonica to groups of children. Especially when they see the smallest harmonica in the world – the Hohner Little Lady.
Technically the answer to this question is yes; although we don’t recommend it and it’s not something we’d ever attempt.
Let’s see what happens when Laurel and Hardy try to out-smart each other on their harmonicas. Stan fools around on a toy trumpet first, then finds his 10 hole harmonica. But can you spot Ollie’s 4 hole Hohner Little Lady half way through? Where do you think it ends up? Remember – please don’t try this yourself!
