Hugo Gernsback - Amp Builder's Guide
Hugo Gernsback is best known for inventing the phrase "Science Fiction". He started publishing SF stories in his electronics magazines in the 1920s. He spent his lifetime making science and electronics easy for beginners and whole generations of amplifier builders have used his easy introductions to get started.

I found his reprint of Amplifier's Builder's Guide online. It is a short booklet that gives the basics of Amplifier design. It also gives several easy amps to build. If you want to build your own amps, then this little booklet is where to start.

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.

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.
