Free Harmonica????
I've been seeing these free harmonica links all over the interent and I finally decided to click on one. They were giving away a Suzuki Chromatic so I decided to see what it was about.
It is not quite a scam, but it is not quite a free harmonica either.
They make you click on about 40 different pages with various "free" offers or special deals. On my modem line each took 30 seconds to load so there is 20 minutes of my life that I'll never get back. I finally wound up on a page telling me that I had to choose three items form a huge list of offers and then I'd get the harp.
I could not find any combination of the "free" offers that would result in a net profit. If you are looking for a credit card, life insurance, credit checks, CD of the month clubs, or mp3 download services, then you might find something that you were going to get anyway. Of course, I discovered this long after they got my telephone number and email address. I gave them a special spam address, but still...
So once again there is no such thing as a free lunch. I can warn you, but I can't discourage you from trying this offer if you see it. You may get a free harp in exchange for some service that you might have bought anyway. Just don't give them an active email address and never give anyone a credit card number for something that is FREE! 

 

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.

The JT30 Page Popular links

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.

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.
