Subject: How to run a jam...

I found the posting about the DC Blues Society jam especially
interesting for the details it gives about how it is run. A local
music club in Manila has expressed interest in holding Sunday blues
jams. No one here has any experience with how to manage a jam so that
it runs efficiently and keeps participants happy. I would appreciate
receiving information about how jams are handled at various clubs. If
I can figure out how to go about, I may take on the challenge of
getting something going here. After all, I'm sure all of you will
want to have a place to play when you drop by Manila. Post me direct
-- no need to clutter up the list with this. Thanks in advance.

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.
