Harp Player Little Annie Raines has a Blog that has some fun stuff. Here is an article about the guitarist Paul Rishell.

My brother Larry and I went down to West Virginia about ten years ago for Blues Week. On the way down we saw a UFO and took some video. (You can see the ufo clip on my blog)
After taking a few lessons with Annie, I decided that she was mis-named. Instead of Little Annie Raines, she should be called Little Teenie-Tiny Annie Raines. I am six foot four and when standing next to her, she didn't make it up much higher than my belt.
I decided that Paul Rishell, after having a conversation with him, had arrived in one of the UFO's that Larry and I spotted. Very strange man... but a good guitar player. 

 

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 JT30.com 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.
