Just want to thank all the many Harp-L'ers who have expressed
appreciation, both public and private, for the itinerary listings.
Much appreciated on this end, too. Here's the latest, though it
has a few names missing this time. Will have to light a fire under
some of the agents and/or artists.

If you attend any of the following concerts/gigs, especially as a result
of this list, please tell the artists you saw it on the Harp-L / Internet.

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.

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.
