Subject: RealAudio Results

RealAudio results.

One minute of 44.1 KhZ audio harp mono at ~5 Meg compressed to 49K using
RealAudio. Quality suffered greatly--whacha expect? Still, 49K for 60
seconds--we could exchange low quality licks without any problem. (I'd post
a sample, but somebody might listen to it...) Not acceptable for a Harp-L
tape though. Decent quality at about 650K of (not RealAudio) compression.
Disk is cheap enough now--we ~could~ do something on-line..

BTW, the idea of RealAudio is real-time audio over the internet--listen to
news or sports as it happens, without suffering the large download times.

"You see, I don't play like nobody else. I play my own style. Somebody say,
'Well, you don't play like so-and-so.' I say, 'Well, they don't play like
me!'" -- Sonny Terry

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.
