Usually the combo locks like the one on your case are shipped with the
000 setting. A new combo lock on the case should have been shipped set
to 000 and should have had a red plastic thingamajig through the
tumblers, which have a small hole at the 0 position.

To change the combo from that or any other setting, you need to push the
latch in the opposite direction when the combo is set to open, that is
toward the tumblers, and while holding it pushed in, change the combo to
whatever numbers you desire. Once you have changed the numbers, release
the latch, and your new combo is set.

Enjoy your new LP.

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.

Harp Tab

A collection of songs and riffs that I’ve worked out over the years, plus some libraries of stuff I’ve converted to tablature. I’ve included most of the notes and instructions that helped me when I was learning to play blues harmonica.
