The sound of the harmonica follows Charles Bronson’s character in the film, Once Upon a Time in the West.
His character is also known as “Harmonica.”
Sincere thanks to author friend, Tim Dittmer who alerted me to this terrific film. He knows I’ve been taking harmonica lessons over the past months, and this haunting theme is a great example of what the instrument can do, so I’m learning it. C harp, bend on the 6 hole draw, not easy.
Watch this incredible scene from the film on Youtube. I don’t like guns, but I love old Westerns and gunfights … and of course, Charles Bronson.
The music is by Italian composer, Ennio Morricone.
