Nice Paul Butterfield technique. Not enough women play harp, but those who do are killers.

She has a myspace page: with some tunes, in with BB ?? Unfortunately, the rest of the tunes are soft and romantic sounding compared to the rough edge from this video - I notice the guy in the video a bit metalish ?? She should certainly consider teaming up with some Americans and lose some of the French softness - because you are right - this little solo was "killer" This is what I aspire to as a player, but miles from it.

$^%$&!!!! Does she sing as well or play in a band regular??


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.
