Subject: Crossroads - GREAT HARP FILM

One to rent - Crossroads.. This movie has Ralph Machio in it as a good
guitarists that travels down with Willy Brown (A great harpist in the film) to
the crossroads where Robert Johnson made his deal with the devil. For all
blues enthusists- CHECK THIS OUT!!! It has great music by Ry Cooter
(sp?) There is a great scene where Willie Brown mimicks a train passing by
using his harp. If anyone knows how to do this, PLEASE POST!!

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.
