Subject: Harp Blues/Alanis Morissette
Blues harmonica is great, but it's not the be-all and end-all of harp
playing. The blues is such a narrow genre anyway, if you stick rigidly to
its tenets, you sound boring and cliched no matter how good your playing.
So, IMHO, it's good that Popper and others of his ilk push the envelope in
One thing that is bad about Hopper (and it's been mentioned before) is his
gunslinger attitude and million-notes a minute style. Less is often more.
Music is not an athletic event. Many musicians (this is particularly a
problem for guitar players) are so intent on wowing us with their physical
prowessl that they forget about the melody and the song.
Oh... and if it sounds like Morissette just picked up the harmonica, it's
'cause she did. The recording of her album "Jagged Little Pill" was the
first time she *ever* played harp.
