Subject: Harp Madness In Huntsville

Well, folks, anyone living within striking distance of North Alabame
needs to be camped out at the Kaffee Klatsch in Huntsville next weekend.

Thursday 11/9 James Harman
Friday 11/10 The Snake Doctors
Saturday 11/11 The Snake Doctors
Sunday 11/12 The Nighthawks

That's four nights of harmonica madness, in the venue quoted on Blues-L
(when Rod Piazza played there a few Tuesdays ago) as being "the size of
most places' bath rooms".

OK, well, two nights of harmonica madness and two nights of harmonica
mediocrity. James Harman and Mark Wenner are two of the finest blues
players on the circuit today (IMHO). The harp player for the Snake
Doctors is, um, me. I have my moments, but feel kind of intimidated
being sandwiched between those two on the calendar!

As always, call before you drive in case of last minute schedule changes.
The Klatsch can be reached on (205) 536 7993.

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 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.
