Big Road Blues

Big Road Blues airs on a Chicago jazz station on Sunday mornings, but the best part about Big Road Blues is that Jeff Harris also has a blog with the playlist and some great writing about the blues. The blog articles are interesting and well written. I can't get WGMC Jazz 90.1 internet radio here at work but I can read Jeff's blog. I've added it to my Monday morning routine.

Buy the Book!

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.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

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.
