Recent threads have discussed lascivious harp technique, G-spots, C-spots, and
the immortal Willie Brown quote from the movie "Crossroads". I probably
shouldn't belabor this subject, but yet...
I have it on good authority that the reason harmonica players are so
interesting to some parts of the audience is that they demonstrate such
delicate sensitivity with their mouth and tongue, and they appear never to have
to come up for breath when they're having a good time.
Thus, the 13 year old girls in the crowd speculate "Wow, I'll bet he's a good
Realizing that this is a family channel, yet taking a cue from what has been
posted before, I'll simply note the possibility that the young girls' mothers
in the audience have their own thoughts as well.
On a more elevated plane, the harmonica player has a particularly intimate
involvement with his/her music, and thus with the audience. Jerry Portnoy has
pointed out that (paraphrasing here, I can't remember exactly) you play a
guitar with your hands, you take a deep breath and blow through a sax, but with
a harmonica you actually *breathe* the music as you inhale and exhale through
the reeds. I hadn't really thought about it til he said it, but I think it's an
important truth that has an effect on the communication of emotion between
musician and audience.
Don't let nobody snow you. Harps is special.
