Filter out Harmonica in Soundtrack pro

Hello,

I am recording Guitar with Harmonica Songs.
I would like to filter out the harmonica as much as possible.
Unfortunately both instruments are on both tracks.
I am very new to Soundtrack and would appreciate it very much to get an easy to follow instruction!

Many thanks.

The tool to use would be the equalizer. It eliminates selected frequencies. But I bet it won't work. I bet the frequencies of the guitar & harmonica are so much alike that if you get rid of one instrument's sound, the other goes away too.

Personally, I'd go for a Plan B -- a different piece of music.

Thank you Dave.
What would be Plan B in this case?

For recording I have only a harmonica accompanied by a guitar.

Record the Guitar in one room and the Harmonica in another. Give the musicians headphones to hear each other.

Don't try to cheap out on your audio recording. You'll only make your troubles worse in the end. Get the gear you need. Rent if necessary.

Izotope is the expensive solution that would commonly be applied to this, but as the man says, some of the frequencies will overlap and what's left may not sound as good as you need it to.
